    Maybe she she sees her reflection and is wondering what the Sheltie is doing under the water!

    How fun! :yuckyuck
    I have a koi pond and none of my boys seem interested.

    Your pond allows for walking right in... so inviting!:ROFLMAO:

    What a gorgeous pond! I'd want to get in it too. :) It does look inviting, and at least Shelby doesn't seem inclined to snack on the fish! :drowning:

    Mine have always had an issue with water. This summer we managed to get Katy to come close to the ocean but she was not real interested.

    Oddly neither mind mud and think it's some beauty treatment.

    Spirit is not a fan of water at all - she doesn't even like to walk on wet grass. Skylar thinks splashing in a mud puddle is the best fun EVER!!!!!!! And the day that she splashed in the mud puddle and then pounced on Spirit- well - Spirit told her off like there was no tomorrow!!!!!!!!

    Minnie is also not fond of water that goes higher than the stomach.

    Here in 10 days we go to our cottage for 3 months, where there are less than 100 mtr. to the most beautiful beach, so we go there several times a day.

    From a morning trip --- https://goo.gl/photos/ZswLKuB2wGHYKqJS7

    Minnie loves to pick up stuff I throw out, but if it's longer than she gets wet in the middle of her stomach -she goes back and barks at me - I have to get the thing myself :biggrin2: or we must go further.
    If I do not get her to swim this summer, I do not think it will happen. :gaah
    (I had thought about a swim vest would help - but do not think so)
