It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are. Unknown

That is one of the coolest things about them. They are ducks in water.

Paddling fools. Just don't put them in a race with a labrador. Oakly had his butt kicked by a 12 year old lab this summer.

I find that Mister will swim at whatever speed he feels necessary. If he and Sunny are going for the same ball, he visibly picks up the pace!!

Here is a pic showing Mister's super-webbed toes! (Sunny's are not nearly as webbed)

Yep....all "water" dogs have webbed paws. Cool huh?

If we had webbed hands and feet we could swim almost as good as they do!

All DOGS have webbed paws to some degree. Whippets and Greyhounds do... and they hate water (usually)
