First Swim

Do you have pictures or videos of your Havs first swim or just all wet?

Ha ha I'm so lazy...all I can think of is the mess of trying to clean it all up! Brody isn't a big fan of being soaking wet..he's OK in light rain, but in a real downpour where he gets soaked he thinks I'm deliberately trying to kill him. I'm pretty sure he wouldn't go swimming...he would, however dig in the mud.

I know what you mean I have a hard time watching them get all dirty but they sure have fun!

I have said this before, Rosie thinks that I am waterboarding her just to give her a bath. Swimming is not an option.

Cute! But I don't like wet or dirty so I would be the last one to encourage mine to go into the water! Zoey looked like she was getting pretty brave there!!!

LOL Lucile - Panda too - however if the sprinklers are running she will absolutely get soaked.... I can't understand the difference, but she loves running through them - the bath that follows - not so much!

As much as I love my boys to have fun, I would not encourage more work on myself if I can help it. Now.....if they were both in very short cuts, then go ahead and get wet boys and have fun!

Dexter and Jack make enough work for me already. I admit it, I look at the work that well be required to getting them cleaned up too. But, if they are due for a bath anyway....get wet and have fun!

I do love videos. Thank you so much for sharing their fun. I do need to try out my phone and see what I can to produce a video of the boys.

Was this before Maddie got a short hairdo or after?

That was before. Maddie has a very odd havanese coat she doesn't grow much on her body. I had given her a cut a few mo ago and cut too much bang It was just starting to grow back.
Here are the before and after I think her paws are funny she actually looks cute. because she is.
