That was such a great video. Last summer that was the way moose was swimming, we called it the periscope method. his nose was straight up in the air and he was splashing his paws with nothing happening. This summer we went back to maine and Tailor's mom and Tailor came over to the island and Tailor taught both moose and angel how to swim. Angel still doesn't like to get her back wet, but moose was doing better and better each time.

Maybe Tailor could start a swimming school and travel around the country teaching other golden's how to swim.

beth, moose and angel

Great video! He's a doll


The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
- Tolkien

LOL! Now that sounds like a great idea! He definitely needs some help!

We'll take him again tomorrow and see if he improves.

I think he did great! He'll get even better in now time. It took awhile for Parker to get the hang of it, and he was braver when we went in with him. That's how we actually got him to start jumping off the dock. Camden has picked it up quicker just because he has Park to watch.

I agree that you need to jump in and show him how it's done!
