Diving Dogs

It was a muggy, hot Saturday afternoon so we put the dogs in the truck and drove to the Lee Valley. For this time of the year it's usual for the swimming holes to be crowded with people. But then this summer hasn't been usual in anyway. The first hole we came to was empty. 

Paddy didn't need any encouraging to get in!

After awhile a guy turned up with two collie dogs and tennis balls. These dogs were divers. Their owner would throw each dog its ball - then each dog would dive off a log to get it.

Paddy was watching intensely. 

And decided that maybe he could do that as well. 

Mostly, he was all legs. No co-ordination. And all about the splashing!

With a little more practise it might be his new favourite thing to do!
