    Is 'go swim'. 'Go swim' beats 'want a cookie' or 'where's the rat?' as her mostest favourite phrase a human can utter.

    First it was swimming in our pond at home but its small..

    Hey there is a child in my go swim!

    THen we went to the cottage.
    hmm lots of space in this go swim, its still all mine

    Ew the child still insists on contaminating my go swim! (yes she is screaming her head off)
    [​IMG]

    Looking at with great pleasure at 'her' go swim beside all the go swim splash/stream making devices... (a very content terrier)

    Actually going swim in the go swim.

    At home if she is hot and her human does not take her up to the pond she will use the smaller go swims, also known as water troughs and water buckets. She sits in there and growls at any horse that has the nerve to wonder why their drinking container is now a 'go swim'
    [​IMG]

    We have a spot to go swim called the piggery. Its just one road over and soo close and sooo fantastic. No squishy weeds, all smooth rock or coarse sand.

    Eyeing up other human's large brightly coloured squishy sticks (also called pool noodles)

    She always wears her leash in case someone shows up with a dog, I can grab her quickly. She is so obcessed with go swim though that she never wanders, she is either watching the water intently (she even sits on my parents deck and stares at their above ground pool 'go swim' for hours at a time) or is leaping in to get a stick, a ball or just joining a kid who is running in..

    This go swim is warm..

    You will notice this large colourful squishy stick is covered in Dekka sized bite marks..

    Dekka loves chilling in the go swim with people. She will hook her front paws over the large colourful squishy stick and just float with me. (or stand on me if people are throwing balls etc)

    She found something better.. some of the kids tonight had these large flutter boards

    I had a float on the go swim

    I has adoring minions whilst I has a float

    Tonight was really fun. We spent hours at the piggery. Kids and parents threw sticks for Dekka. She played JRT in the middle when they were tossing balls in the water. I now have a very very tired JRT, but one who would likely perk up if I uttered the words

    "want to go swim"?

    Your dog is awesome. And cute. And I want one that will sit in a bucket like that. :p

    I loved the "go swim" part, lol.

    Enzo will go swim in anything. She's jumped in everything from real swimming pools, to tiny ponds. She has a penchant for jumping in stock tanks. :p

    CD you just need a dog that fits in a bucket, or get a bigger bucket lol!

    Nilly its just my crackberry. I might try to get some good pics with my camera, though not sure what parents would think of me snapping pics with my super obvious zoom lens... That and some of those pics are taken by me standing nearly up to my shoulders in the middle of the indian river (you should come sometime.. its so awesome)

    Aaah, okay. You had me worried that something had happened to your camera!!

    I was just thinking this week that we haven't hung out in a while. This should be fixed ;)

    I'm so jealous. I always wanted a dog that would love to swim and we've only had one. She sure is cute.
