    oh wow!!! Coco took to the water like a duck, tehehe. It's so cool how dogs can swim. That video of her in action was a treat, reminds me of my Belle... she takes to the water far easier than Bobby, who can be anxious about everything.

    She looks so cute in her lifejacket!
    I am definitely getting one for Kokoda.
    I will have to find a blue one though. I don't think he'd be impressed with a pink one

    In that photo where you are holding her off the ground. I couldn't figure out why it looked strange!
    I couldn't tell she was off the ground, but i knew it looked funny!
    It wasn't until i read it that i realised you were holding her in the air!

    Does Coco mind wearing it? I was just thinking that it might impact their ability to move around a bit.
    Does it at all?

    Sorry for all my questions

    Nope she runs around just fine! The only thing that frustrated her was when she was trying to roll around in the grass with it on - she loves to roll when she is wet. Otherwise she was swimming great, running great, and didn't even notice she had it on. What might have helped her was that as a young puppy I would play dress up with her, so she is used to wearing all sorts of things

    That's great to hear. Koda is also used to wearing things. He is walked with a harness and wears coats in the winter often.
    He will sit (or stand, depending on what he is getting pout on) if you tell him to 'get dressed'
    so i don't think he will mind the lifejacket then.

    You know when something is just SO ridiculously adorable that it makes you laugh? That's what happened to me when i saw the image of coco hanging by the life jacket holder! SOOO cute! Hehe i LOVE when i see people carrying their little dogs with those holder things (No idea what they are called).

    The video is just so sweet! Going to take Molly to an off leash park on Sunday which i think has a small creek, so hopefully Molly will swim like Coco!
