The dog days of summer are almost here....do your pugs like to go in the pool? I hear they are not great swimmers, but Lily enjoys taking baths and loves water. My sister is in the process of getting an in ground pool...so we were thinking Lily might like to sail around on a floating tube to cool off once in a while. I saw life vests in Petco which I know she would have no problem wearing.

Did you ever take your pugs for a summer dip?

Lily, we live on a lake and it just started getting nice here, so the last week or so has been Fig's first chance to "get her feet wet". She loves it! My GSD swims all the time (even when I don't want him to!) and Fig has been following him right into the water. She wears a life vest and I have her on a leash (because there is NO WAY I am getting into that water right now).

I like baths and I like walking in the water a little bit at the beach. My sister hates water! I guess it doesn't bother me because I'm not afraid of anything! My mom and dad won't let me play in the water without being watched. I guess they're scared that with my short muzzle and short legs, I'm not really built for swimming.

Xena loves to go in the tub, and last year we took her to Poochapalooza--it was at a local swimming pool, and the day after the pool closed for the season, they allowed dogs to come since they were going to drain the pool afterwards anyway. Xena was a bit nervous at first, but she is a pretty good swimmer!

Emma loves baths, but hates puddles - she goes out of her way to avoid them - so it'll be interesting to see what she thinks of the lake and the beach this summer

Spencie hates baths!! But....we tried him in the pool last weekend and he liked it okay. He was scared at first, but swam like a seasoned Olympian!
I don't know if he'd ever get in the pool on his own though...

You can get a lifevest for your little puggy. That way you won't have to worry so much about your furrbabies safety. More fun for everyone!

I LOVE THE WATER! I love to chase the water that comes out of that long thing in the yard. I jump in the bathtub to beg for bathtime, and swims every chance I get. I don't remember this but before I came to live with my new parents, I lived with someone else and they said that I was no where to be found one summer afternoon. A few hours later it was discovered that I was swimming around the pool. This was quite scary because they had an above ground pool so I had been in there paddling around for quite some time. After that they bought me a life vest but I don't like to wear it - I can swim just fine on my own!
