For those of us who remember learning how to swim for the first time, we can all recall that it was a pretty scary experience! It feels so much safer to know your feet is constantly resting on the ground beneath you, and the water stays far away from your nose and ears.
Puppies like this Golden Retriever named Beau often have that initial fear as they are first introduced to the water. It is a big, scary thing that isn’t dry land! But once they overcome that fear and go into the water, they often turn out to be a natural!
With Dad waiting just a few steps away to welcome Beau into his arms, Mom lowers the pup into the water. Even before she’s in, she is already making small paddling motions with her front paws – a sure sign that she was born for this. And she proves she is, by swimming over to Dad with no problem!
