Still Not A Water Dog

We keep trying to convince Ruby that water is fun …

but she’s not buying it

    Well, why should she?!? Humans. Honestly. Good thing about being a cat is that humans normally don't even try to make us like water. However, they do try to convince us of other stuff we don't show interest in. Why?? If we aren't interested, we don't need humans to convince us that we should be interested. Sigh. Hope our human is learning that lesson rather sooner than later.

    We think you look good CLOSE TO the water, sweet Ruby. But going INTO the water is a whole other ballgame, huh? 🙂

    Stick to your guns, Ruby, if you don't like that water then you stop where you are. Mind you having a paddle in it is great fun, or so someone once told me, and doesn't actually count as full on swimming. All the fun with no risk. MOLPurrs. ERin

    Well, Ruby, you may not be a water dog, but you sure are a cute dog!

    That is all right Ruby. Most of us cats don't like water either although some of them do like to play in the water. You are just so cute. You all have a great week.

    Abby is the same – we bought her a little kiddie pool, one like Barkley had and could hardly be pried out of, and she wouldn't even put a toe in the water.

    Fenris doesn't buy it either unless he is REALLY hot, then he will get in the water now that he is older. When he was a puppy he was scared of the waves.

    Nope. Stella and Kenzie aren't either. Our old coydog, Polly, sure was! She would run off into the lake until she was almost 17!

    Some dogs are just happier posing in front of it, and Ruby does a very good job of that! ♥

    We swam Sam in a warm water pool for about 6-1/2 years following his injury. He's at best, a reluctant swimmer. So Sam sides with Ruby. Forget swimming, let's eat.

    You and Rosie should start a support group! It's okay, Ruby … your unique-nesses are what make you you … the puppy we all love so much.

    Astrid is right there with you, Ruby. She doesn't even like to go outside after it's rained, because she doesn't like when her toesies get wet.

    Huh! I've never had a dog that wouldn't get in the water. Unless it was a bath, of course. Maybe someday she'll "get it." Have a wonderful summer!
