For the longest time we always thought Cody just didn’t like water or swimming. When she was a pup, any time anyone went for a swim in the pool, she’d run back indoors and watch from the doorway. As she got older she got more used to it, but she’d merely follow whoever was in the pool until she got bored.
Taking her to the beach was hilarious. She’d do everything to not let her feet get wet. Got tricky when that favourite stick of her’s was thrown into the sea and she just had to get it.
She’s never got in the pool, she’s never swum in the sea. Water is acceptable when it’s in the water bowl.
That’s all changed now. A few weeks back, me and the brother took her to Virginia Water Lake. It was ridiculously hot, probably about 28 degrees C when we were there. We figured we’d let her cool off her paws in the water.
Yep, that’s her loving it. We had to keep her on the lead because she’s got issues with other dogs and there were plenty of those around.
The following week we decided to head back to Virginia Water Lake with Cody and see if she’ll actually go for a swim. You know what? Ohh… I’ll just show you:
And now the only thought is, is she going to jump into the pool in Portugal?
