My love for water

As a puppy before the age of 4 months, I used to hate water a lot.  I would hate it when my human mom sprays the garden hose at me.  I hated baths even more!  Bath times were hell for my humans 🙂  And when they took me to the park and tried to get me to swim in the lake, I would turn my nose up at them and walk away.  Sometimes they tried to throw me into the water but I was, of course, much too fast for them!

People say beagles aren’t fond of water much, and I was a typical beagle until the age of 4 months.  I don’t know what changed, but one day I saw a black labrador leap into the muddy lake at the park… and I followed suit!  It was so fun and I loved swimming since then.

These days, I am known as the famous swimming beagle at the dog park which I visit every weekend.  All the humans there love to watch me swim and they always cheer me on when I take a dive into the water to fetch something.  Oh and I’m also notoriously known to fetch and steal other doggies’ tennis/squeaky balls and harass park visitors to throw me something into the lake so I can go swim and fetch it.  They say I am a lab trapped in a beagle’s body!

You sure wouldn’t believe it…

 

Love the cold water!

Love the cold water!

Here I come!

Here I come!

It sure makes me happy!

It sure makes me happy!

I still love swimming and fetching tennis balls, and sometimes mom gets annoyed because I love chasing the water that sprays out of the garden hose as well!  Sometimes mom takes me to a doggy day care center which has a special doggy swimming pool and many, many dogs to swim and play with.  That’s another story for another day 🙂

Do you like swimming too?  It’s really fun 😉

  1. Wow Cookie! I’m not too fond of water though i don’t mind getting the tips of my paws wet. But swimming looks like so much fun… I can’t wait to get started. But not yet 😉

    • Hello Zara, thanks for visiting! Swimming is fun, it’s good exercise and tires me out so much that my human mama gets enough peace for a day….hee hee 🙂

  2. How adorable. Yes, I think he is a lab disguised in a beagle body:) Alex, Dogo argentine/pit bull mix, does not care much for water. She looks at it, maybe goes in and after a couple of minutes she is done. The pictures are amazing:)
