Ruthie's Swimming Lesson

Since this is a completely different subject I thought I'd just make a second thread. Yay picture spamming!

Anyways, I'm puppy-sitting this week and since I miss my dogs a ton I thought I'd bring Ruthie by to meet/play with Mardy. During the visit she took an interest in the pool. Being the slight scaredy-cat that she is (she's always timid at first) I took it upon myself to help her out. No, I didn't shove her in but I did put her in the shallow end and her love blossomed from there. At one point I heard a huge splash only to discover that she had jumped from the shallow part into the deeper section. She would swim around a bit, get out and shake the water off, and then jump back in.

I'm thinking that I'll work on her ball/toy drive so that this summer we can try some dock diving.

Personally, nobody else felt like it was pool weather - just Crazy Ruthie. As for Dreizehn, he stayed at home (my home). I thought he'd be a little much for 15 week-old Mardy and, considering that Mardy wasn't to fond of having Ruthie in his yard I"m sure he would have hated Dreizehn. He got extra loving today, however, so it's all good

As I opened this thread I was thinking "please be video...please be video". No video, but luckily your action pics are the next best thing! They are awesome and what a cutie Ruthie is.
