Abbey officially SWAM today!! Not just wading in up until she can touch, but she was swimming in water that was maybe 3 feet deep, max.
I took the dogs for a walk and ran into one of my neighbors with her dog, Daisy. Daisy is a shepherd mix (looks like a GSD just all black) and has some issues, plus she's a bit older, so she can be kind of snappy with dogs.. but she LOOOOVES to swim.
We were walking along a path in the woods by my apartment where there is a nice river that isn't stagnant, but doesn't move too fast, either. It's not very deep and you can see to the bottom, too. Daisy ran in, then I let Abbey off leash and she went in, too. They were both jumping up and making splashes.. it was too adorable. Poor Toby couldn't go in because he is bad with his recall and would run off into the woods.
I wish I had my camera!! But this is the first time Abbey WILLINGLY swam in deep water!
