I don't know if I mentioned this before, but Baxter started out terrified of swimming. He would reluctantly venture into the pond, but only where he could still touch bottom. His love of toys couldn't even tempt his further, anytime he'd lose his footing he'd turn in a blind panic forgetting the toys in his rush to regain his footing.
We tried throwing all the toys out into the water and cheering him on, but that didn't work. He'd get frustrated and then sit down in the water and bark at the toys out of his reach.
That all changed earlier this week when he finally decided he was tired of Koda getting all the toys and dived in!
Why you talk so much? Boring!
Throw the toy!
Whee! I stapled an old rug on the end of the dock to help give Koda more traction in his jumps, i think it's working!
Baxter mostly jumps into the water right below the dock. I didn't get any pics of him jumping in, but i did get some videos that i'm uploading as we speak.
He's so tiny under all that hair!!
That was fun!
