Remember how I’ve been starting Luke out slowly with getting back into swimming? Well, I forgot to carry that same theory over to Cricket when I took her recently. Cricket loves the water, and she has been swimming in the past, though it’s probably been a few years. I did start out slowly with throwing the ball in, but I got a little too excited about how well she was doing at swimming again. I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story (it is Wordless Wednesday after all).
Just because a beagle can swim, and a beagle will swim (when she’s ball obsessed) doesn’t mean she always wants to swim! I am at least smart enough to take an old chewed up ball when we go swimming in case this happens. It wasn’t warm enough that day for me to be willing to go in and retrieve it this time, so it floated away….lesson learned!
