Camera Critters - Water Fun


Camera Critters


Been a couple of years since I posted to Camera Critters, so glad to see it hasn't disappeared :-) Misty , our Lab/Blue Heeler cross, has been convinced for ages, that immersing herself in water is a VERY BAD THING !!! No amount of gentle persuasion on our part was going to change her mind. It was definitely a case of 'If us dogs were meant to swim, then we would have been given gills and webbed feet', as far as she was concerned. That was until we moved up to WA and took her to one of the salt water inlet parks in Olympia. The pictures say it better than words do :-)
Happy puppy = water + big stick + Mum & Dad getting exhausted throwing it :-) Also Saturday Critters

Oh my gosh, that is so cute. One of my brother's dog is MADLY in love with playing in the water, too.

My dogs aren't fans. I think it reminds them of bath time. :p

Oh so glad your back! I just started doing Saturday Critters it's so fun. You have some great shots. We had a yellow Lab who loved water too! Thanks for coming by and seeing my Cozy Critter Kitty.
Enjoy your weekend.

The dogs do love to play in the water. Especially fetching sticks, fun time.. Cute shots of your puppy dog. Thank you for linking up to my critter party. Enjoy your weekend!

Great action shot of an adorable dog who is obviously loving the water! ~ Didn't think a lab would mind the water ~ Had one for 14 years and he wouldn't stay out of it ~ Had a blue healer for a very short time (I was working too much and never home but she was adorable) Must be a great combo ~

Cute! Our German shepherd loved to swim, but our dachshund only went into the water until it reached his tummy.

Super shots of your dog enjoying the water, I wonder what made him change his mind about it being fun. My dog doesn't like water at all, she's a Dachs and with her little legs can't swim.

That's something--that she would have such an about face regarding water. Now she knows what she's been missing.
