My boy is a swimmer! I mean, he LOVES the water. My friend Shawn found a park at a local lake that is entirely fenced in, so we can take the dogs there and let them run, play, and swim off-leash to their hearts' delight. At first I planned to make Brodie wear his lifejacket because last year he wasn't a confident swimmer without it, but as soon as I took his leash off he jumped right in and had a blast. He's much more sure of himself this year, swimming much farther out and leaping off the bank into the water. It is so cute to watch! And he barks the whole time he's swimming, making it very clear he's enjoying himself. Here are a couple of videos and photos of Brodie and his swimming buddy, Zoey.
