Swim Day at Aquapaws

Out for my swim with Jacqueline at Aquapaws today.

Hey, I'm not getting anywhere.  Who's holding my legs?

That's more like it.  Now I'm moving.

Wow.  That's a lot of work!
After I finish swimming, I get a big towel rub down and a yummy treat before heading off home again.
Relaxing in the car on the way home.
Thanks for checking in.  See ya soon.  Sam.


  1. Hi, Sam!
    Swimming is a pawesome exercise for you!
    I am sure you enjoy a lot your time there!
    Have a great week!
    Kisses and hugs

  2. Thanks Lorenza.

    It is hard work but I get body rubs in the water too which I like.
    And I'm the only one of my brothers and sisters at home that knows how to swim.
    Have a super week. Good Night.

  3. We've never been in a pool like that one before, Sam. It looks like fun to us!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  4. How cool! Id want Darwin to be able to swim like that, but she freaks out once her paws can't touch the bottom!

  5. Hi Brooke, it took me awhile to get comfortable in the water too. At first I had to wear a floatation device but then one day, Jacqueline took it off and I worn one since. There's a ledge on one side of the pool and I can stand on it when I'm resting but I don't like the water too high when I'm standing on it. Jacqueline had to lower the height of the pool so that I wouldn't "complain". Maybe someone could do the same for you?

  6. hi Sam, that swimming pool looks really nice. swimming is really good exercise for you. you are probably really strong. we've never gotten to swim in a pool, only little swims in a very little river. we would like to swim in a pool like that. it looks like fun


  7. Hi 4B's: Thanks for your note. Okay here's the deal, Sunshade also swims in the same pool. So if your mom and dad will drive you guys up the road for a visit, I'll get my dad to arrange a swim date for us all. Sound like a plan? Oh ya, the water's warm, about 92 degrees :)

  8. Sam absolutely brillo paws to see you swimming. You are so clever not to mention brave!

    So you get body rubs as well...sounds pretty good to us. But we think you deserve it after all you hard work swimming.

  9. Hi there!
    Sam you are such a brave dog!
    We don't like pools!
    We are now following your blog!
    Kisses and pawshakes from Portugal!

  10. Hi Thuglets: Thanks for your post. I'm the only one that knows how to swim. My brothers and my sister haven't tried it. I don't think that they'd like it. Oh no. I first started swimming with a life jacket (so I would float) but after a few sessions, I took it off and I've been swimming without one since.

    Hi Terrorzinhos: Wow, Portugal...I had to get my dad to show me where that was. I think that you're far away from Canada and our city. But I'm very glad that you came to visit my blog. Hopefully you'll be back. Thank you.

  11. You're very brave to swim. I know it's therapy for you, but I hate the water!

    I have a great blog I'd love for you to check out, It's a wonderful place for pet bloggers to find each other.
