I guess I would change that to, if it’s uncomfortably cold to me, it’s too cold for my dog. Dogs will also run around on super hot and/or rough asphalt until their paw pads bleed, so we can’t always trust them to do what’s best for them. Although, I suspect where your dogs are swimming is fine. Especially if they are… Read more
why pit bulls can’t swim? my mind immediately went to..
Our Lab/Walker mix got limber tail once after swimming, and she was the saddest girl while she was recovering. It literally looked broken, and it hurt her to wag.
Please tell your son that a stranger on the internet thinks it’s fantastic he’s able to love a person for who they are and not be hung up on their gender.
My late beloved cockapoo Chimpy didn’t want to swim at all until I waded out in the water with a ball and a cheerful disposition during his second summer. He jumped in and thus started a lifelong love of the water. He took a dip in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi River and Lake…
My old English Pointer used to swim alongside my kayak in the river. She swam 2 miles one day, going ashore for quick runs of a few hundred yards before jumping back into the river to accompany me. I miss her.
PittBulls have cinderblocks for heads.
Our Pit always hated the pool. She doesn’t have much webbing between her toes so we assumed that’s why she really has to put effort into staying afloat. Her doggy life vest was a game changer and as soon as she has it on she’s a confident swimmer that won’t stay out of the pool!
I don’t know about pugs, but bulldogs (I think all kinds) can’t give birth naturally, either, so if you are buying a bulldog puppy, its mom had to be cut open for them to be born. It really should be illegal to continue breeding them.
Or the North American Gaslighter. Nasty breed.
We had a mixed breed dog that we had to train how to swim each year. Without training he would paddle straight up and down with front paws only. Great dog, but weird in the water.
Had a labradoodle, great dog. we live inland. first time he saw the ocean he tried his best to jump off a 250 foot cliff to get into the surf. He never saw water that he wouldn’t get into.
That is such an unrealistic expectation!
I recently bought a bottle of Caesar dressing that, after I opened it, I saw was labeled “consume within seven days of opening.” LOL, what?! Just how many salads do you think I’m eating here? One month on, it still seems fine, although I make sure to check first before glopping it on my lettuce.
