Charlie Went Swimming...

It all began the day Charlie came to my parent's house.

1. He was acquainted with 5 other dogs.
2. He showed off his many tricks!
(sit, lay down, roll over, dance, shake...that's impressive for a pup!)
3. He dodged the 'big dogs' as they wanted to play a little too rough.
4. He dodged the 'little dogs' as they were a little territorial when it came to attention.
5. He smiled for a photo shoot.
6. He was introduced to the largest stick of his life.
7. He watched Daisy swim...

...Right before April wanted to see if he would swim too.

So that's exactly what we did.

Daisy taught him a thing or two about the water...

Then his mom and dad coaxed him with treats and hugs.

He got used to it pretty quick.

And, before long he was a pro!

Meet: Charlie, the swimming dog!

And, I hear he is already enjoying a new 'kiddie' pool just for him. :)


  1. Super cute! What kind of dog is he? He has similarities with my dog, so I was just curious. I love water dogs!!

  2. Isn't he so cute?! He is actually my brother in law and sister in law's new puppy! They rescued him from the humane society and he is a mix of several different breeds. I think he has a lot of Jack Russell in him, and I'm not sure what all else! Thanks for dropping by! :)
