I know what you're saying. You're saying, "But wait! I thought all dogs know how to swim!"

That's what I thought, too, but then I saw this photo of the Infamous Miss B in a life jacket and it occurred to me that, duh, not all dogs know how to swim, not all dogs can swim, and not all dogs even like the water.

Do you put a life jacket on your dog? Where did you get yours? In the U.S., there are no regulations for pet life jackets, so make sure you do your research.
