It was quite hot the other day so I decided to go for a swim in the lake to cool off. Our previous dog, Jackson had loved swimming in the lake but we weren’t sure how Harley would react to the water. So I carried him in and let him swim back to the steps up to the dock. He wasn’t as comfortable swimming as Jackson was (but then neither was Jackson at first). He doesn’t actually sink as much as he gives the impression that he might. His rear sinks and he “doggy paddles” in an almost vertical position through the water. Maybe he just needs more practice? My wife took the pictures since I was in the lake.
Introducing Harley to the water.
Wet (and maybe a bit scared) but cool.
