Dexter here! Due to the condition that he left the dog cave in, Mango has been banned from the pooter for a few days, so all you doggies that won Mango Minster prizes will have to wait until this weekend for him to get his act together. That's fine with me, because I, Dexter can now blog at will (about time).
First, I need every doggie, kittie, hammie, and human to visit our oldest blogging pal and mentor, Bogart. His dad has very bad sickies and needs all the good zen available.
My good pal, Kylie, told me about a doggie swim club called Aquadog, located in Waltham, MA that I just had to try.
They have a nice indoor pool, perfect for a winter swim. There is a nice lady dressed like a seal who goes swimming with you and tosses balls and whatnot. At first she held on to me, but I quickly got the hang of it.
I was particularly smitten with the bubbles that blew out of the sides.
Check it out! What a great retriever, huh? She even turned the jets on full blast and made it harder to swim, but I was up for it.
I didn't want to rest, but the seal lady made me...
I didn't much care for the blow dry afterwards. I mean, I was finally wet for the first time since our pool closed down.
Momma thinks that I was dozing with my head up on the way home, but I was just winking.
Even when I got home, I was still full of beans and ready for some stuffie action with the Relentlessly Huges.
Who seemed precoccupied with my butt (no, I did not fart in the pool, but with all those bubbles who would have noticed).
I made a movie of my swimming prowess. I hope we go back again soon!
After supper I went to bed even though I wasn't really tired, I mean it! Not tired at all... not the least bit sleepy... not... Zzzzzzz...
Wow...That looks like fun...You are one great swimmer...
Michael Phelps better watch out...He's got some serious competition...
I know you aren't tired, but enjoy your nap...
That looks like so much funs!!! My big brother, Jack, would love it too!!
Mya Boo Boo
I may have to try that with Teka. Nothing - and I mean Nothing makes that doggie take a nap.
Guess what? We have the exact same life jackets. But not cause we likes swimmies, cause we don't!
Bobo and Meja the Sharpei puppies.
OH MY DOG! That looks like so much fun...or at least it would be if I liked to swim! YOu are so lucky! What a great idea! Happy late V.D. to you!
You is fast Dexter. Sure looks like you had loads of fun!
Wow Dexter, you're a regular Michael Phelps! Well, I mean, without the bong and the media scrutiny and the loss of your Kellogg's endorsement. I mean, you're a really fast swimmer! I have that same lifeguard vest, Mommy sometimes makes me wear it at the beach if there's a lot of surf. We went to an indoor doggie pool once but it didn't have air jets or a lady SEAL in the pool. I'd jump in for the tennis ball, swim and get it, then try to scramble out the sides. Not crazy for not touching the bottom!
Your pal in swim fins,
Looks like you had a great time Dexter. Lucky dog!
Tinkerbell, Oscar and Tucker
That looks like a great way to tire out a dog!
Dexter you are definitely an Olympic quality swimmer. I am sure when the Olympic Committee sees you at swim, they will start a canine division and you will be in it!
You are making that swimming pool look like so much fun and I hate water! Who wants to get wet?!
You are one strong swimmer, Dexter!
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
That looks like LOADS of fun! Not sure I would want to try it, but you go ahead!
Lots of Licks, Ruby
My heavens you are a lucky dog! Moose would LOOOVE that and it would be perfect for rehab but the nearest one is too far for us and too $$$ (esp after $4000+ surgery!). We are surrounded by water but very little public access and it is too cold for good rehab swims at the moment. So have a swim for Moose next time you go, handsome boy!
What a fun time woo had, Dexter - wish we had one near us, but Mom says it would take too long for us to get dry??? Do woo think woo might let Mango come along too?
Tail wags, the OP Pack
WOOF! I am so glad you had fun! Isn't the seal lady great?! I think Mommy should put on a seal outfit and go in with me next time! BOL I resumed the same position when I got home! BOL and I didn't even get to use all the jets!
No fish from The Seal Lady?
The Poor MangoMobile......
How totally AWESOME!!!! I wish there was a place like that around her for me to go!!!!!!!!
That looks like great fun... I can tell you were thinking not sleeping. My mom works in Waltham.. she'll have to look into that place.
Dang Dexter, you looked like Michael Phelps...well except for the weed part. Great job, I am sure you were not tired AT ALL!?!!
Thats so cool! I wonder if I'd like to go for a swim?
Hugs & Snugs
Eduardo the Snuggle Puggle
Looks like you had a pawesome time Dexter!
Kisses and hugs
WHOA Dexter....that is soooo cool that you went swimming at the same place as Kylie! You look like a pro and man, there were alot of bubbles!
Enjoy your rest!
I will stop by to visit Bogart. :)
The dog swim club looks pawsome. I wish I can swim too
Are you training, or is it just for fun?
You are one swimming fool, man! You're amazing in the water. So sleek. A natural. (Wish I could find an indoor doggie pool for some winter dips.)
Great swimming Dexter! You are a fish. And that is a pretty snazzy jacket. I wish that I had a pool like that to swim in.
Hey Dexter ... look at you go for that ball, you are so quick swimming.
It looks a pretty cool place to go that. :-)
Holly & Zac...XX
