When we first adopted Haley 5 months ago she had no interest in swimming. We don’t know her past but my guess is no one ever took her to the water.
Going into shallow water was fine, but she wouldn’t venture further out where she could swim. She even let her beloved balls float away to oblivion rather than swim to them.
But over the weekend at Magnuson Off-Lease Area her inner Labrador Retriever took over and she began to swim like a pro!
I envision many more swimming trip in our future.
