Neeko Swimming

I've mentioned it before, but Neeko LOVES water, and loves to swim.  She gets excited at the site of a body of water.  After her vet appointment on Monday, I took her to a small park with a pond and a creek to play in.  I packed our 30 foot training leash for the pond swimming.  She had a great time, as usual.  The pond had a gentle slope, and once she figured that out, she was racing in and out of it, along with going out deep to actually swim.

Swimming is a good low-impact workout for dogs.  Since her hips do seem to bother her on occasion, I am glad that it is something she enjoys.  Once she gets older, it may be her main form of exercise.

She's a shark!!


  1. The JAWS theme is running through my head. After all these years (13) just two years ago I discovered I like it too. Don't know why I waited so long.

  2. Yups, I'm with Goose, I had the 'Jaws' theme runnin' through my heads!! BOL
    You go gurl!!

  3. We have never been to a body of water, but Mom says she doesn't think we would like it. We never cared much for the swimming pool she got us.

    BTW, Mom made those grainfree biscuits, well hers are more like bars, but oh yes, they are so good!!! Thanks for the recipe.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  4. Hehe she looks like a great swimmer :) My dog also likes to swim, but weirdly enough hates baths and the rain...


Thanks for the howls!!
