WW-Swim Carma Swim

It's no secret that I am a poodle who can not swim
*note* (My pool is 42" deep so I can stand up with my head above water)

poodle trying to swim

My 1st try was unsuccessful. 
Ma says I need to open my eyes

taking a break from swimming

We took a break and dad gave me encouragement
My 2nd attempt , ma was calling me to come to her.

My 3rd attempt, dad gave me a push and I started paddling 
with all my might! 
I WAS DOING IT! 
I was SWIMMING!!
I am so proud of myself
and look forward to swimming some more. 
Wednesday's Wags!

    1. Ma said she would get me a life jacket to make it easier for me but thought it was important to learn to swim without it first. Never know when a flood or something will come.

  4. You got that dog paddle down! I've been swimming since I was about 3 months old, but Bailie just learned to swim this summer. She loves it too.

  16. So cute!! Good job! I love swimming doggies! Our last 2 dogs never swam. (Well, the beagle swam once for a VERY SHORT BIT, but only because we put her in the pool to make sure she'd know how to get out. She hated water!) Rita will swim a tiny bit (and it's the cutest thing ever!) but only if I wade out. She loves to dunk down in the water, but hates to swim!

  17. Cole poodle won't swim, we think it's because he gets a bath after, and that's enough to put one off it. And his hair gets kinky. Good for you girl!

  20. You are so beautiful Carma! Nice job with the swimming - this is only the beginning for loads of fun - WOOF!

  21. LOL! You are the second dog I've ever known who couldn't swim. My dog Becky Anne couldn't swim either. It was because she kept trying to touch the bottom with her back legs while keeping her head up above water. Even after showing her how to do it, she'd end up doing the same thing again. So silly. :)
