Smirnoff's first Swim!

Good Morning friends. Spring seems to have sprung and the days are warming up slowly. I am delighted as I am not much good at winter. Although, I love the elegance of winter's clothes, I adore the freedom of my summer wardrobe much more.

Smirnoff, the Labrador has decided that it is time for his first swim after winter. He generally swims daily in summer but during winter a  maniac plunge into the pool happens, normally, when he returns from a walk. He barges in the front door, panting and skids and slides around corners to exit at the patio door in full "Marley and Me" style, all the while his tail is  wagging like crazy and plunges in, no matter what the weather. Come rain or shine!! Ditto when her returns from a stint at the kennels where he probably pines for the pool endlessly...









He gets so exhausted but can't seem to stop himself.  On this occasion he came back from a walk and was already tired. He plunges in and takes a turn and exits, has a shake, smiles at you with sheer delight, turns and heads back in.... Repeat , Repeat ....





On this occasion, we counted seventeen sorties in and out making quite a impact on the level of the pool!










Almost to tired to get his back legs out the pool!!










Eventually he has had enough! and time to dry of next to the pool at mother's feet, completely contented and satisfied with the days fun...





Well, now I am looking forward to my first swim of the season but unfortunately I am not a Lab and the temperature of the water is still way to cold to take a plunge!

I will be out of town for a few days and hope to be back on Monday.

Live Well

Veronica

  2. Oh, how funny. I think Smirnoff is very cool. That is so funny, you're preparing for Spring/Summer and we are preparing for fall/winter. I'm not a winter girl either!

  3. Have a good trip, and perhaps the water will be warm enough for you to swim on your return.
