Does your Havanese swim?

Tippi hates water to touch her body. Rain, bath, etc. But I'm wondering if she'd swim?

Kodi loves wading around in water as long as he can keep his feet on the bottom. He does know HOW to swim... We made him learn how to swim and where to get out of the pool when he was a puppy. But he never willingly takes his feet off the bottom. He'll even lie down in shallow water to get cool in the summer time.

What I'd like to know is if ther are LONG HAIRED Havs who enjoy swimming. I suspect that the long hair is a big drag in the water... Sort of like trying to swim in clothes. I know most of my brother's Collies and Shelties haven't been wiling to swim either. The only one who enjoyed swimming was one who had such a heavy coat that he was prone to hot spots. So they started having him cut down in the summer time. He loved swimming without his heavy coat!

Oh my goodness that is too funny! Does Bella swim? I'm assuming not, she'd probably be eaten by a big fish If I end up walking with you one day and your gang gets in the water Timmy will be like "What the heck?" There's not a snowball's chance in he%* that he would ever swim.
