[VIDEO] Puppy Swim Lesson

Rhodesian Ridgebacks might traditionally be most comfortable on wide open plains, but there’s no reason they can’t also learn to love swimming. Here’s how I’m helping Penny embrace her inner surfer girl. https://youtu.be/_835YnqGTIs

    i love your Friday videos – Good for Penny!! A master swimmer and fetcher and chaser – she is just multi-talented like Eko!

  2. wow that was great to watch you… from a distance of course :o) how did you the first part of the video with the waterbowl? that was a great perspective… but you didn’t sit in the waterbowl with a snorkel and diving goggles, right?

    Isn’t it about time that you decided to keep Penny? She’s not anywhere to be found on your “about” page.

    Love it!!! I loved the moment that Dash realized how to swim. So wonderful to watch. And, just to wanted to share with you, sadly, my sister had to put her beloved black lab Coal to sleep two nights ago, so I sent her your blog entry after your brother lost Dutch. Such a beautiful piece of writing –she was very appreciative and loved your words. Helped her to put words to what she is feeling.

  5. OMG those expressions at the end in the shower were making me laugh out loud!!! Too funny! Penny has one “smooth” stroke! Have a great weekend all!

    No matter how much you make water fun my girl, Luna, despise it. My boy, Zonka, used to love it in the shallows but now that he is older only his toes.

    It is great yours live it so much. Enjoy!!

    Awesome dog paddle form, Penny! Our Ridgeback friends in Germany loved the beach and water too, so I know it is in you!

  8. I think you guys live in Chicago. Is that Lake Micigan they were swimming in ? If so, where is the dog beach or what beach are you swimming at and how cold is it? Absolutely love your blog. You write beautifully. I have seldom been moved to tears as I was by your blog about your brother and Dutch and then tears of joy when he and Mr. found each other! Thank you ever so for sharing.

    Very quick learner – like all girls lol (my turn to be funny although I’m sure your lovely wife 🙂 would agree). Our boys love to swim – yes Dalmatian that loves the water. Ziggy takes himself swimming in our creek when he is too hot – he is very funny, straight in and just stands there to cool off.

    Those are Olympic doggies! Look out Mark Phelps!

    Love and licks,

  11. Penny’s getting her Michael Phelps groove and form on! Great job. Gotta love the sad faces come bath time-Sam is the same way but I think he’d rather set his fur on fire before getting into a lake. He walks around puddles on sidewalks!

  12. OhMelvin says:

    Love your videos!! Can you come teach Jake to swim? Penny can be her coach.

  13. fredrieka says:

    love the face she makes, you go Penny

  14. Good job penny, loved the video

  15. That Penny is just the cutest. She swims like Jack – trying to walk on top of the water. Eko looks like a pro.
