    DefaultTony needs some swimming lessons.

    I just took Tony and Bruno to the lake for a swim, took some sticks for B to dock jump. When Tony saw Bruno jump in, he went right after him, but he can only do the desperate dog paddle.(splashing front paws, not kicking back legs) He came up to the wrong side of the dock where there were no steps, and wanted me to lift him out. (~65-70lbs) I tried to get him under the dock to the steps, but he cried as soon as I left him. I had to go in after him, cloths and all. As soon as he got out on the dock, he followed Bruno to the end of the dock and jumped in deep water with Bruno, and came back to the steps splashing front paws but very proud of himself. Tomorrow, I'll go in with him and hold his back end up. (When Judy was a youngster, she did the same thing until I held her horizontal and she kicked rear legs. Bruno and Mitzi knew how to swim.)

    Me too! Especially when you went in with your clothes on, hoisted his butt up onto the dock and he jumped right back in. LOL!!!!

    Tony, you silly boy, don't you know Moms are not supposed to swim in their clothes? Oh, you knew that, huh?

    Haha, oh dear! I'm sure it's much funnier now than it was then!

    Jaxx hasn't attempted our pond yet, although we let our neighbor's lab go in our pond. Jaxx watches and wags his tail but hasn't approached yet. I figure he'll go in when he's ready!
