Swimming Lessons

Hi Friends,

Over the past couple months, I have been having regular swimming lessons. Now if you know me, water isn't my favorite thing in the world. But my person says it's important to know how to swim, especially because Grand-Maw & Grand-Paw have a swimmin' hole at their house.

So, my person slaps a life jacket on me & me goes. Yikes! sometimes, it's a little scary for me. Here are some pictures from Lake Tahoe, where I went swimming twice. We went last month, and the water was pretty cool but very clear. The little waves scare me a little, even though ocean waves are a lot worse. Hound dog friends, do you like to swimmm???

I never swam so far by myself before-- I can't  believe my person let me go!

But then i hit land & could stand up on my feets again. 

Wet dog & glad to be seeing dry land again. 


  1. Worm, isn't swimming fun?! I love to get exercise by swimming when it is warm outside.

  2. Sorry Worm, we are not fond of the swimming thing. Winston likes to wade in the water and Amiee went swimming a year ago and she did not like it. She swam to the exit and then ran to the car. At least it proved our point to our Mom person, Bassets don't sink. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  3. Hey Worm. I am not into the swimming thin, but Mom and Dad took my sister Abby and me to Myrtle Beach this year (to grandma and grandpas condo) We both liked chasing the shore birds, but my whimpy sister Abby is afraid of the wave coming into shore. I think they are fun and refreshing. Tho' I don't like getting the sand hosed off me before we can go back inside for treats.
