Hello there! I've been meaning to post about a trip we had recently with family. There were kids and adults and dogs and food. It was my nephew's first birthday and my aunt had rented a private place with a pool. Of course I had to take Monkey for a dip. He still doesn't like the water, but like a good soldier, he will swim to me no problem. I didn't let him stay long as he was clearly uncomfortable and although the water was warm due to the sun, the hair being plastered on his skin made him shiver after a while so we had to dry him off and try to keep him off the floor because there were puddles galore.
Cousins. We rinse their footsies before taking them in the water because there became dirty with the floor constantly wet.
Just keep swimming... Shay (female, black & white) did better than Shelley. Outright, Shelley was shivering even before he touched the water.
Monkey didn't even get his head wet.
I, therefore, conclude, they are not water dogs.
