i'm swimming!! finally!
mommy and daddy took their time introducing me to the swimming pool. they waited until the sod around the pool was fully developed so i didn't get all muddy coming out of the pool. because we all know that if i'm muddy, mommy's not happy. and if's mommy's not happy, nobody's happy.
here i am heading down the steps, to....
head up, head up, keep my head up.
phew, the steps.
it took me a few laps to realize the best way out. i tried turning toward the side of the pool to get out, but, um, that didn't work out too well. so now i use the steps like every one else.
mommy loves taking close ups.
here i am, in action.
i do a mean doggie paddle.
and then, after 47 laps, i crash.
and crash hard.
and in other news, mommy and i are really really really proud of daddy. he rode in a 100k (68 mile) bike ride a few weekends ago. he got up at 230 in the morning, drove a few hours with a neighbor and arrived at the starting line at dawn.
they rode thru an air force base.
