Puppy’s First Swim


Switzer is about nine weeks old now (read more about him here).  He still keeps us up at night, chews on shoes, baseboards and ankles, and pees at will. Yep, he’s still a puppy. But he did pass a milestone this weekend … he did the doggy paddle on his own for the first time.  The picture above is him with that “Sure I can do it!” look afterwards.  Jacob asked me if he would just sink like a rock if he let go of him in the pool. I said there’s only one way to find out. It was a short solo swim for Switzer, but a successful one. Now let’s work on the chewing, peeing and late night wake-up calls.
