Pepper does not. He gives me a look like if I drip even a few drops of water on him by accident.

However, he really enjoyed romping in the !

I have one of each! Maddy jumps right in and paddles across the creek like an Olympic swimmer, and Mickey stands on the bank and squeals for someone to carry him across. Of course, this is the same boy who doesn't want to walk out into the grass to pee because he will get his tootsies wet!

Drew loves water. When I first got him, he would dive into the water dish and try to swim in it. It was cute at first until he started splashing the water all over the place. I bought him a doggie pool and he actually loves to swim under the water. Now, he won't go potty in wet grass though. Go figure. LOL

not really...

Riki used to jump in the kiddy pool to get his toys and then jump right back out. My dogs will follow me through the tidepools but don't enjoy swimming, if I put them in the water they swim right to shore and then run around in the sand.

i wonder if they were raised with it if they would like it more. They just aren't happy like the labs are in the ocean. But Riki enjoys running through the mud though!

I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!

Here's another cute video from Talemaker Havanese. Apparently they have one that will jump in the pool. I will be going to my sister's pool on Labor Day weekend and hope to get Sophie jumping in.


Unconditional love!

We took the dogs to the local waterpark on "Doggie Day". All the dogs are invited (for a fee) to swim in the pool before they drain it for the season. My dogs wanted NOTHING to do with swimming. I even threw Miley into the deeper part of the pool, and she looked at me like she was going to DROWN. It was fun to see all the dogs playing though!





Here's Miley....PULLING my daughter OUT of the pool!

My cousin put in a new pool in her backyard this summer. So, I thought I'd take my guys over to go for a swim. She's got a salt water pool which uses far less chlorine.

I put both me guys into the water very gently and let them go. They couldn't get out of the pool fast enough lol. So I tried again. But when I called them over to the pool, they wouldn't even come close to the edge for me to grab them. I had to get out and catch them. Same response once in "get me the hell out of here! Now!".

But they definitely had lots of fun running around the backyard all wet, rolling in the dirt and chasing each other.

Chances are if your parents never had kids...you won't either...
