Maebe's Swimming Lesson

Hey Hey, it's Maebe Baebe!

I'm not too happy about this photo, see, I really hate the swimming pool. When I was just a young pup, me and Kayla were doing laps around the pool and I missed a corner and fell right in the deep end in the frigid cold wintertime. Mom was right there to scoop me out, but I never wanted to be in that water again! Unfortunately for me, Mom thought it was really important for Kayla and me to learn how to swim. Well, not so much learn to swim since that comes quite naturally to an intelligent husky, but how to find the underwater benches so we can get out of the pool. She also thought it would be a great way for us to cool off in this oppressive Vegas summer heat! Our old buddy Sheena used to get in and out of the pool like 10 times a day in the summertime! I thought she was either crazy or senile!

So here's what Mom did. She took us out for a long walk in the morning. By the time we got home we were pretty toasty. Then she carried me outside to the pool, and then INTO the pool. She held me with my arms on her shoulders while I floated and we danced in the pool. She let me out, and I took care of some business.... then I came back to the edge of the pool. She grabbed her new waterproof camera and called me. I was a little hesitant, but she held her arms out and I jumped in! Mom was shocked - but she did manage to get this pic of me swimmin!

Well, it really was a hot day and the water felt good... this time.

So that's my story, woo a'tcha later! Maebe

Wow! That looks like tons of fun. I really like swimming, but I've never been swimming in a big pool like that.
