Our dog, Jenny, loves water. Truly and absolutely. She's a great swimmer.
She loves being on the water with us. . .
And has no qualms about jumping right in!
Her retriever instincts really kick in at the lake. She loves to retrieve objects -- and is especially fond of flotation cushions! Jenny will retrieve these cushions all day (as long as we keep throwing them out in the water). . . and just keep stacking them up on the beach.
On occasion, she has also retrieved floating rafts right out from under floating family members. That doesn't work so well. They lose air pretty quickly!
Jenny is a great companion at the lake! But when she gets out of the water. . .
We all get . . . waterdogged!
