Lazy Weekend

Last week, we were housesitting (and dog/cat/bird-sitting) for my aunt. She has a pool, which is always nice when the weather is super hot! So Sadie and I (and their dog, Harlie) enjoyed a nice lazy weekend by the pool. I took some pictures of the dogs, and some came out really well, I think! As you can see, Sadie is quite confused as to what she should do after that first step...she just keeps sticking her paws out and feeling nothing but water. So I had to pick her up and put her in so she could swim a bit. But she wasn't much of a fan of that lol. And I wasn't able to get a picture of her swimming. (When I tried to video her swimming, I dropped my cell phone in the pool. Awesome. At least it wasn't the DSLR though!) Enjoy the pics! We hope you are keeping cool this summer!

  1. Super fun and cute pics ! Maybe Sadie could take a spin on Harlie's float...I think it is all about their feeling safe...or a jacket ? She'll be swimming on her own in no time ! Thanks for sharing !

  3. Thanks, Lois! She has no problem at the lake or the ocean when it comes to swimming, since she can walk right in. I think the unknown factor of the second pool step freaks her out!! But I'll keep working with her :)

    Kelly, thanks! That one is my favorite, too! Corgi smiles!

  8. Great photos! How can she still be panting when she's all wet by the pool? My corgi pants so much, I threaten to douse her in the shower. She loves to swim at the beach, too. Hasn't tried a pool yet.

  9. Thanks, Lisa! It was REALLY hot out, so even the pool didn't truly cool her off! Plus, she was getting all worked up because she didn't know how to get off that first step. Silly girl.

  10. aww cute. i think corgis who swim are the most coolest things ever.. yea bailey has issues about jumping into pools of water, he likes the gradual descend along the side of a lake or something. and that golden is so cool to be floating on that thing!! :D hehaheheheh.. yes i would be glad it was my phone over my uhhh camera!!! :D glad to hear it was a phone you needed to replace anyways, that always makes it better.. almost like a reason to finally get a new one!:)

  12. Karen, yeah Sadie prefers the lake or ocean, too! Much easier to just walk in!! And yeah haha that Golden will just lay on that raft and float around all day. It's too funny!
