Dida likes to wade. She used to bite the waves at the river beach when she was a pup.

annabel was not a fan of water in the past. when we first moved to michigan we took her to the lake where she ran up and down the shoreline chasing waves, but never actually went in the water. this year we have been able to coax her in by throwing sticks in the shallowest water close to the shoreline, it is the first time we have ever seen her swim!

As you can see by Digger's picture - he only gets in the water up to his carriage. He is usually barking, growling, and trying to bite the rushing water. Not sure what that is all about but he's happy so who cares. He also has his own baby pool and is not happy unless someone is splashing the water.

Wow, so I guess my dog is unusual because he HATES water! When he was going to stay with my Aunt and Uncle who have a pool, we made sure he could swim and how to get out if he fell in but he just couldn't stand being in the water!
