This is a video of my dogs swimming in the pool. The big brown one is a chocolate lab. Her name is Brownie. (Figures, right?) The 2 smaller ones are her puppies. The light brown one is Bandit. The black one is Angel.
They absolutely LOVE to go swimming. I never taught them to climb up that ladder. They just started doing it one day when they realized there's water at the other end of the steps.
Bandit swims nonstop. He's like the Energizer Bunny. He's always chasing after a ball or bugging the other dogs to play with him. Brownie is a lot more relaxed. She prefers to chill on a float and let the sun shine on her back.
