Denny opened swimming season today. It's a cloudy day, 17Celcius, the water is 12C. I always thought Denny was lazy, because he didn't want to run around like the others, but after he had his first swim of the day, he was like the energizer Bunny and whizzed around the property like a barrel of rum on legs.
He also loves to be chased, and the two Whites obliged him, and gave their best to chase him all over the place.
Once Happy saw how ecstatic Denny was, swimming like a beaver, there was no holding back for him, and he joined in on the fun. Meanwhile Maggie was running circles around the pool, watching them, slipping twice, and falling in the third time. Unfortunately she swam away from the steps, and held on to the edge, where I had to pull her out. There was no way I was going to jump in to teach her the right way out. That's a lesson learned another day, and with my son in the pool. Soon though.
Of course once out of the water, and rubbed off once, they wanted to be dry at once, as in RIGHT NOW! They rubbed themselves in anything fabric, even into my pants, which I'm wearing, and which are wet now too. But it was a hoot to watch. That also means from now on there will be wet dogs, every day, until October. I see a bubble bath or two coming up soon.
Wet but happy dogs!
