Swim and play date.

Jie jie arrange for a swimming date for me with another neighbour, Snowy last Saturday. This is my date, Snowy. He is a maltese/shih tsu crossed. He is a handsome boy, isn't he?

"Jie jie, this border collie says that he wants to teach me to swim without life jacket. Is it ok?"

They even have a life guard at the pool now.

Life guard at work. He is telling the other doggie not to play and swim at the same time.

The Border Collie keep watching me swim even after I have told him that I don't need any swimming lessons.

Boy! I am so tired. What? I can't rest now? You guys are going to escort me for a few more laps? OH.. No...

Why does the pool seems so crowded suddenly? Can you guys leave me alone?

Bear Bear (Rottie): Ok, I will leave you to swim with the border colllie.

Hey! I won't drown even if you are not swimming with me.

Alright, you can follow me. Just don't swim too close, yah?

What? To swim some more? Oh... Nooo...erm...I don't think so...

HELP!!! I don't want to swim anymore!!! LEAVE ME ALONE!!!

Jie jie, the 2 of them are slave drivers. They won't let me rest. Can I get bath and go to the pet shop for some air con?

Snowy : Perhaps I can get some attention if I pretend to be drowning...Help!! I am drowning!!!

Snowy : Why didn't anyone bother to even look at me? Don't they know that this is my first time swimming? or is it that only girls can get free personal swimming instructors and life guard?

Snowy: Me too wanna to leave this pool. I don't think I like swimming too much...

Finally bathed, dried and dressed. Can we go now?

Snowy: I am ready too. Lets go...

Bye guys... hope you enjoy your swim...

Fianlly in the pet shop.

They certainly wanted you to do a full work out.I'd have come and saved you. If would have to be in my boat I don't like swimming.

Chilli the Dog said...

Wow! Snowball you certainly had fun with Snowy. Too bad mom had some things to do and couldnt join you.

I tot the rottie was Vera. Is Bear Bear as nottie as Vera? Did he try to steal anybody's toys? Ha...Ha...

I muz go now and pester mom to bring me out to swim again.



Oscar Airedale said...

jaffeboy said...

So cute. I have the same life vest but I don't use it anymore!

Snowball said...

Hi Simba, I would love to have you there to save me but I don't think that the pool is big enough for your new boat. But if you do sail here, can I have a ride on it, please?

Hi Chilli, No one brought any excess toys. Those that you see in the pictures belongs to the pet shop, I think. Bear Bear loves toys too, he nearly push jie jie into the water when jie jie was holding one of the toys in her hand. He is just like you, went directly to the pool again after he was bathed and he is tall enough to retriece a toy from the pool without jumping in and the daddy calls him "idiot"..

Hey Oscar, Yeah, those guys are not gentlemen enough. That is certainly no way to treat a lady like me!! Don't you think so? I am sure you will be nicer to me won't you?

Hi Jaffe, The life jacket was recommended by my physiotherapist as part of my hydrotherapy treatment. The life jacket is supposed to help support my spine so that it will be straight when I swim. In fact, I have 2 life jackets. The one Snowy is wearing is mine too...

Boo said...

Baily said...

nose licks

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Snowball,
Wow, a date named Snowy? hehehehe. We can't believe there is a pool just for doggies. We sure don't see any of those around here, no fair. Looks like you sure had lots of fun swimming with your pals. Mama just won't let us swim in her koi ponds, we don't know why. You look so pretty all fluffed up & ready to go shopping. Hope you got to pick out something fun at the pet store.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Joe Stains said...

you guys are very good swimmers. that border collie sure was pushy! I hate to swim

Snowball said...

Geez.. Thanks Boo..

Hi Sitka, The truth is I never really enjoy swimming but I needed to so jie jie happily delicate the job of supervising my swimming session to any dogs who will volunteer themselves..hmmph..

Faya, Swiming is a good way to tone up your muscles. Its not that scary afterall.

Maggie#2, the pool is a fun place even if you don't swim as the place is enclosed so we can all go off leash and play with all other doggies there.

Maggie, yeah. you have to get wet when you swim. It sounds like you don't like water too much, do you? Just give it a go. You might like it.

Hi Baily, Yeah. I need to swim lots more according to my vet. As I don't like it too much and my humans are lazy, I am already spared from lots of swimming. I don't get treats for doing thing cos I won't eat even if they force me to. I only eat treats after my dinner everyday and best of all, I don't have to work for it. :D

Hey Butchy & Snickers, Yeah. A date. He is handsome isn't he? The shopping session is always fun as all doggies are allowed to walk freely off leash in the shop premises and the great dane, Dai Dai, is always there to patrol.Your mom is probably afraid that you might kill the koi if you swim there too often.

Hi Joey and Tanner, I am a ok swimmer. I am beginning to get use to it. That border collie is really a slave driver isn't he? Swimming wasn't that bad after all. Just give it a try with other doggies around. It will be fun if you like to play with other doggies.

Peanut said...

Those other doggies worked you hard didn't they? Looks like you had fun though I don't know why you would want to go swimming.

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

ooh Snowy is really a handsome boy.
Boo must be jealous of his good looks lol

Boy n Baby
