We took the dogs to the river yesterday (Lily had to stay home because of her spay incision)....and it was a good time. When we first got to the river all of the big dogs went running toward the bank and jumped right in. Well, Rookie, not knowing really anything...followed them like he always does. He ran right toward the bank (which sits about 3 inches above the water) and right over the bank into the water. It was funny....he went in...splashed around and we fished him out. I believe he was more than a little surprised. While he didn't jump back in, he waded in a few times, and showed much interest in doing what the others were doing....and yes, I have video. ;)

Here is Rider being the dock dog and water freak that he is:

And here Rider is...whining because it's not his turn to get the bumper:

and this is Rookie...splashing around the shallow areas and getting mudding on the bank. :)

The 4th pup is our other neighbor's dog, Maggie, a golden retriever. :)

Rider's leap in that first video is AWESOME! Rookie is adorable...oh my goodness he makes me want a puppy. Dani, why did you pick a boy puppy to go with Rider?

Loved the videos. I thought Rider was going to plow right over Rookie in that first video. Murray gets tunnel vision whenever there is water and retrieving involved. Rookie would have been a grease spot. ;)

You are braver than I taking a pup to a chilly lake for his first swim. Were you prepared to go in after him if he couldn't swim? Brrrr....

I don't want a female. I prefer males over females personality-wise. Personal preference.

It was a river actually, and it was cold, because I was wading around in the water with him to get him to walk around a bit. But yes, I would have dove in to get him if he got into trouble. It was only a few blocks from home...so I wouldn't have been frozen for long. ;)
