My little sister Bella emailed me earlier this week asking if I could teach her how to swim. She said the water by the sea looked a little scary and she needed some big brother advice. No problem, I said. come on over and I’ll take you to my favourite lake. I’ll show you how to swim and play fetch in the water – it will be fun!
Said and done – she brought her humans over to our place on Sunday and we went to the lake.
So as you can tell, I didn’t manage to teach Bella how to swim, she’s such a little scaredy pup! When I told her stories about how I learned to swim by falling into the deep end, she just shuddered and looked really scared.
I thought my adventure as a pup was pawsome, and that it might challenge her to go into the lake – but it just seemed to make her even more worried. She did trust me enough to walk into the water though, but she refused to get her belly wet. It must be a girl thing! I think I might need some advice – how can we teach little Bella how to swim next time she comes to visit?
