Swimming Lesson

I could not let Riley have all of the fun so Seven had her first swimming lesson.  Seven is definitely not a water dog.  She is slowly starting to show signs of realizing its value when she needs to cool off, but otherwise she tends to not get wet above her toes.
Seven did really well. Sometimes my greyhounds will not eat the first time they swim, but Seven was not about to let this experience curb her appetite.
Of course, Peanut, my sister's greyhound, supervised from a comfortable post at all times.

Seven looked much more relaxed on the last circuit:) Does Peanut ever swim or mainly supervise in comfort?

Hi Y'all!

Beautiful shots of Peanut "the supervisor". Seven did really well.

We always loved greyhounds. However, our lifestyle is not good for ex-racers.

Hubby went to see a fellow in rescue in the town where we used to live. At the time one of the dogs had managed to slip out the gate and the man was off chasing the dog all over the town.

Later he told us we'd always have to have a secure fence or have them on a leash.

We love to hike in off leash areas. Our mountain house is built on rock and no one wants the job to fence it. So we have stuck with our retrievers.

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

I know your dogs love to retrieve, have you ever tried retrieve in the water? I know that changed my never ever swim hound into a water lover.

Looking good, real good. :)

GHs CAN Sit, I'll answer in my next post. Elizabeth, it worked for Travis. :-)

Seven did really well!

I can't get enough of Peanut :)
I love her pool pics and the name is greyt!

Peanut is priceless. It's just astonishing how she can just lay there! I am dying to know how she gets on that thing in the first place, though.

Seven looks great! I'm sure she'll be a water dog in no time.

I think Peanut needs her own blog!

Seven definitely looked like she was gaining confidence by the end! Again, here you are taunting me with all your pool fun!

Just a note that my husband and I LOVE your blog, and the photo of the hound lounging in the pool with sunglasses and drink had me rolling with laughter.

We adopted our first greyhound in January and it won't be our last -- such a fabulous breed.

I'm loving all your videos. Your pack really knows how to have fun! We have 2 whippets and 1 greyhound, and none of them is a big fan of water. Maybe they'd learn to loveit, but I have a feeling they might relax on the sidelines instead.
