Just wanted to let everyone know I posted pictures of Baxter on his first day of swimming (Summer '09). He has improved so much since those first pictures, and doesn't look near as nervous. He can go for about 5-7 minutes on his own around the pool (I am always next to him encouraging and seeing that his face stays above water). This swimming is much more then he would have ever tolerated walking. In walking he would simply sit down and refuse to move...often while crossing the street. The last few days it has been pretty chilly, and rainy. We haven't had a chance to swim. I am hoping that August warms up and at least begins to feel like summer. My daughter is hoping to get more pictures of him swimming. She wants to enter one in the local fair. I told her fine as long as she crops me out! Would love to hear from other Pug owners that have tried swimming for their older, or overweight, Pugs.
