Swim with me?
« on: May 08, 2007, 08:18:03 am »
"Come on - anybody?  PLEASE!"  It was between 95 and 100 degrees here today.  Shaggy has figured out that it is pretty cool on our baja step.  It is about 2ft under water.  He hasn't ventured off the step yet but....It is only a matter of time.  Cindy-The Brindle Pack, I am only about 1 hour or so south of you in Murrieta.

Oh Shaggy is soooo cute.  I especially love that last one too.  He looks like he's asking if he can have a treat in the pool or something. 

It's great that you are so close to The Brindle Pack.  Maybe you and Cindy can arrange a meet & greet or something.  If so, don't forget to take lotsa pics!!!

Too cute! He needs a swim buddy :). Bear would likely do the same, she likes being in the water but having all 4 paws on the ground, not swimming!

I too love the last picture.... what a sweet face.

I would love to get together just need to wait a couple months for Tyra to be off house arrest.  We are doing xrays the 1st of July.  I know there are a couple others between here and San Diego.  Maybe we could meet around your place, that would be about 1/2 way.

Hi, there was a thread on Friday that gave a lot of good dog pool info. that I think will help you find the right one for Beau.  Here's the link:
