  1. Hey Dennis!
    Wow, that post gave me the chuckles! Krool peeps and their torture ideas. BOL I gotta say I love me some swimmies, but it isn’t fur everyone. I’m sure you’ll get to stay on dry land. Tennis balls bounce and roll better on grass anyway…trust me on that one. BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Pol Comm


  2. OMD OMD OMD THANK YOU DENNIS…. This is one of your BESTEST posts EVER. I (Frankie Furter) remembered every bit of it. This will serve as a RemindHER not to be trying it again.


  3. Dennis! Are you kerazy? Swimming is the best! One year I had to teach a bunch of labradorks how to swim in the ocean. I was a hard job but some dawg’s gotta do it!

  4. Oh Dennis! I see your older post is from 2010 and this one from 2014. Does that mean they try to get you in the water every four years? Won’t do, gotta go at least three times a week to get used to the idea. Lake Swimming is the most fun, see if you can find a nice lake and get out there every couple of days. You will be swimming like a pro with no floatey coat with handle,

    Good luck, Buddy, and let us know what you do.

    Your pal, Stella


  5. Hooray for you Dennis, my mom always thought I should be a swimmer dog too. Some fool made a mistake and put it all over the web that Vizslas are water dogs and even photoshopped a picture of one going UNDERWATER to fetch some ridiculous thing. Lies, all lies. You and me know that water is only for cleaning your toes or making mud to roll in. Not swimming. No never. Hold your ground. the spirit of Maggie the Vizsla.


  6. Swimming is fun but I guess it’s not for everyone. It took me a few visits before I got used to wearing the float coat. Your form looked very good (and calm).


  7. We thought it was one of those inflatable “cones” too. None of us has EVER been in the water, no pool, lake, river, ocean, oh wait, maybe a few puddles:) We have all decided that if Dennis doesn’t like it, we won’t either.

  8. Dennis…this just strengthens my reserve to be a Daddy’s girl…I bet your Dada wouldn’y make you go in that evil water!!



  9. Well, I guess we know your stance on swimming! At least there weren’t any sharks in the water. Although I’ve heard of land sharks with candygrams, so maybe it’s safer in the water after all!



  10. Hey Dennis, I’m sure our humans just stay up at night thinking of ways to torture us and embarrass us, and then they tell the whole world in the internet. They have a very warped sense of humor, I’m convinced.
    My parents dress me up in ridiculous clothes and even boots and think it’s super funny, and then they show their blog friends so they can laugh too. Not cool.I’m with you on the serious face thing. Stand your ground, Dennis.You can train them, it just takes time.

  12. Mazie feels your pain Dennis. She is scared of water too. Mom thinks she got thrown in as a puppy because she is very afraid of even a little water so you were VERY brave
