Water lover

It's been a while since we've had a dog that likes water. The last one was Ol' Blackie. He was a mix-breed dog but he had Lab in him

Every time it rained and turned the low spot in the field into a pond, he was in the middle of it. He would splash around and grunt. The temps were no deterrent. It could get so cold the pond would have a layer of ice and Ol' Blackie would dive in.

Neither Caillou, Taz, or Ol' Hook share our old Lab's enthusiasm for getting wet. Enter Kodak.

Last last week it rained for days. I looked out one morning and our pond was back. A while later, we put on our rain gear and headed out with the critter.

One the first lap, Kodak made a B-Line for the water. He was tentative at first, but before long he was splash around and trying to coax the other dogs to follow. They didn't. So, he enjoyed it by himself.


  1. I love it! Dogs remind me of boys because every boy loves to find a muddy water puddle. This picture is cute

  2. He does look like he has some Lab in him.

  3. I grew up with German Shepherds. All of them LOVED water. Unless that water was a bath.

  4. He does look like he enjoys it !

  5. Great photo! From this angle, he looks like a German Shepard.

  6. I enjoyed this one. Funny how small things take you back. Just your mention of water and dogs, my mind went back to the early 50s. My dog loved the water. When we went fishing if we didn't have a bite in ten minutes we were in the river. LOL
    Thanks my friend.

  7. Kodak is growing fast. He looks perfectly content.
