Canoe and Learning to Swim
Yesterday Coco had two firsts! We went on her very first canoe trip with her dog friend and some of my friends, and she went swimming all by herself for the first time! Her love for fetching and the fact that her life jacket helped her float gave her that extra confidence I think. We had so much fun! She was using her friend Diezel the yellow lab as an example.
My friend Kaitlin in the back with the dogs. They were so excited when we pulled up to the park!
Coco's life vest conveniently has a little handle! Don't worry, it has a very thick flap on the bottom that velcros on so no pressure was on her neck. She didn't mind being held like this at all lol.
I can canoe, can you canoe?
And Coco's swimming debut!

This is SO darn cute!!!!! You are both having so much fun, you can tell. I am going to try to get Brooky in the water this summer, do you think the life jacket helped her ease into it? I need to buy Brooky a life jacket anyway so that we can go on some boats this summer!

How did you first introduce her to water? She looks so at ease! We are hoping to be able to take our dog to lakes and streams when he gets older. My husband really wants Sonny to be comfortable around the water, so I want to make sure we introduce him the right way!
