First Swim

Boston Terriers Swimming

Who wants to get in the pool….????

Boston Terriers Swimming

THESE GUYS do!!!

Boston Terriers Swimming

After waiting months and months after moving into the new house last fall, cruelly, after swimming season was already over, a few weeks ago it was finally warm enough to go for our very first swim in the new pool!!

Boston Terriers Swimming

Howie was thrilled!!

Boston Terriers Swimming

He dove in head first :)

Miley’s first entrance into the pool was not quite as graceful.

But once she got in, she loved it!

Howie has an impressive leap into the pool.

Boston Terriers Swimming

He is the king of belly flops!

Boston Terriers Swimming

His stocky little bottom makes a huge cannon ball splash!

Boston Terriers Swimming

He’s such a strong little swimmer!

Boston Terriers Swimming

They love chasing big bouncy balls all over the pool.

Boston Terriers Swimming

They’ll even bounce them back and forth like little seals!

Boston Terriers Swimming

Uh oh, this doesn’t look good for Howie!

Boston Terriers Swimming

Here comes another belly flop!

Boston Terriers Swimming

Splash!

Boston Terriers Swimming

Miley, as you can see, glides into the pool gracefully, usually.

A comparison: Miley, on the left, glides smoothly into the water. Howie is the crazed lunatic wildly flailing about on the right.

Boston Terriers Swimming

Miley always keeps her head above water.

Boston Terriers Swimming

Howie dives nearly all the way to the bottom and kicks his way to the top.

Boston Terriers Swimming

MADE IT!!

Boston Terriers Swimming

Miley is not too please when Howie splashes her with his belly flop.

Boston Terriers Swimming

Howie finally learns to dive!

Boston Terriers Swimming

Look at this form!

Boston Terriers Swimming

And a, err, mostly smooth entry. Miley approves.

Boston Terriers Swimming

See you ’round the pool! :)

Miley and Howie
