So... I finally figured out how to take pictures of Max swimming without him going snorkeling... well not too much.. Below are some photos and videos of him. He REALLY loves to get in the "pool" and swim around but I'm beginning to see he wishes it was a little bigger and he had further he could go...  He may be the one thing that pushes me over the edge to put in a REAL lap pool...  and lucky for him.. his mom used to teach swim lessons and coached swimming. I should be able to teach a dog how to swim right?

I've been in here for 2 hours and don't want to come out! It's cold out there!

Nothing like floating to help you stand up!
Below are a series of 3 videos... Max had just woken up from a nap when I put him in his pool, so the first one is him just getting used to the water.. by the 3rd one he was kicking around pretty good!

Video 1:  Max first just getting into the pool and getting used to it (He just woke up from a nap)  I think he's enjoying floating around actually...  (He does have some really raw sores on his inner thighs from moving around in his cart so much... so I'm trying to let those heal and they may have been stingy when he fist got in the water too. He got over it by the 3rd video.

Video 2:  Max getting more used to being in the pool and moving around more.  He wants to stay on one side of the pool and keeps moving back there even when pushed to the other side.

Video 3:  Max has been in the pool for just about 2 hours now.. he's kicking around and moving and didn't want his life preserver around his neck any more...

  1. Max looks like he is enjoying the freedom of standing and moving in his pool. Max's Mom always coming up with something new to challenge Max and peak his interest. Happy New Year, Chris, Max and the gang. Dude and Dude's Mom (Ann)
