Doggy Paddle 2009

Every year at our local pool, after they've closed it down for the humans, they let us puppies get in and swim before they drain the pools for the winter. I met my friend Louie down at the park for some fun swimmy time!!

Stella's checking things out. Not so sure!

Okay, I'm out here, now what?
It took a little coaxing!

Her head isn't anywhere near the water, but she still won't go in any deeper!

This is our friend Louie, the boxer. He's 5 months old and we are great friends. He wasn't so sure about the water either! He didn't want to go to the next step!

Put as soon as he got up enough courage, he was swimming around like a pro!!

The Swimmer and the Scaredy Cat! Played by Louie and Stella!

The best part of the day...getting towel dried off!!

Ahh...this is the life!!

Oh by the way!

I completely forgot to post pictures of my puppy class!
This is (Honey) Bear. He's a Chihuaha mix.

He says, "I know I look good!"

Lacie, the lovely labra-gal loved wearing the graduation hat! She's such a natural!

Lily, the goldendoodle is a good friend of mine. We like to go to the doggy park together sometimes. She so cute, even with her gray goatee!

Dolly, the goldendoodle was the youngest of our group. She did such a good job!!

She did need a little coaxing to leave the hat on, but we won't tell! :)

And then there's me and my big-ness. Graduated lady! :)

"Yeah, I just graduated today. No big deal!!" :)

All this picture taking is making me sleepy!

Congratulations to the class of June 2009!! :)

We were trying to get a picture with her diploma, but it didn't really work very well.

She is much more interested in a crumb on the ground. Mmmh!

Thank you Liz for being my teacher!!!!

I tried to post a video of Stella doing some sweet moves, but for some reason, it doesn't let me. If somebody can show me how, maybe I can dazzle you someday! :)

Stella wants a treat.....

"Mommy, I would like a treat. I will sit very nicely for it too."

"Are you just going to ignore me down here? Seriously, I want a treat!"

"I will even show you where they are, just in case you forgot. See? Right there!"

"Just put one down on the floor and I will be a happy lady!"

"This is just torture!!"
