bingo just seams to love the water are most bassets this way. she love to go out to our pond and swim around all the time. well at the local pool for the last day they are open they have a dog night so we took bingo
I've posted photos in the past. BOTH of my kids HATE water! Stickes stays far away from the pool. Rusty on the other hand wants to be near us when we are in the pool but sinks like a bag of rocks!!! We tried several methods of teaching him how to find the steps but nothing With a life vest he stays afloat but his fear prevents him from swimming to the steps. So, we live with the child safety fence forever
We have taken Annie every year to the dog swim at the Aquaport in our neighborhood and this was the first year she wouldn't get in the water.
She just looked at it and walked away and spent her evening greeting all the people and dogs coming into the pool area. Everyone got the biggest kick out of her standing there watching everyone come in with their dogs...don't know why she wouldn't swim this year...oh well...maybe next year she'll be in the mood again!
