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!!

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.

He is the king of belly flops!

His stocky little bottom makes a huge cannon ball splash!

He’s such a strong little swimmer!

They love chasing big bouncy balls all over the pool.

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

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

Here comes another belly flop!

Splash!

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.

Miley always keeps her head above water.

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

MADE IT!!

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

Howie finally learns to dive!

Look at this form!

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

See you ’round the pool! :)

Miley and Howie

I really wish our boston terrier loved to swim. We put him in the pool and he starts to shake. Love the

Oh how I loved this post! You really got some fantastic photos here. Looks like they were having a BLAST! Wondering how much water they took in? My Bostons always drink the pool water which makes me a nervous wreck. Did they do that too (well, on purpose at least, LOL)?
Keep the Boston terrier posts coming :)

Omigosh could your pups be any more adorable?!? I love watching little dogs swim – there’s just so much splashing and snorting and it’s like the sweetest, craziest, wettest shuffle EVER. Love it!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE these pictures. We took our 6 month old pup out on the lake for the first time this weekend and he was TERRIFIED! I don’t think I’ve ever seen fear on a dog like that. He could take a few pointers from your pups. :)

Oh my gosh, these two are so cute! Great shots. They are naturals in the water. I’m excited to show this post to my 9 year old son Luke after school. He loves dogs like Miley and Howie and is going to laugh with excitement over these cute pictures! Thanks for the smiles :)

The water looks so inviting, and it must be fun with those two around. Hehe. And here I was all bummed that I didn’t get to go swimming and the rainy season is upon us in tropical Philippines. Good thing though is we can really swim year round, just gotta find a pool to swim in. :))

I loved your first swim pics. very well captioned. when I first looked at Howie’s dive and not the caption, my first words were, “look at that form” I had to laugh when I saw what you captioned.
Good shots of them both and what fun they are having
thanks for sharing!

Such happiness! To think there are Boston people who don’t provide some kind of water for their doggies! Mine just has wading pools, but she’s in and out all day. She lived 7 years in a puppy mill, certainly didn’t learn about water there, poor girl. But we’ve had her 3 and a half years, and she has blossomed like a flower! Her Boxer brother only likes lakes and streams, she thinks he doesn’t know what he’s missing.

Those two are hilarious! It’s so funny to see their personalities come out in their swim styles! This is our first summer owning a pool and we’re trying to get our two dogs to love it as much as we do. One of them is making good progress, but our puppy is just terrified!
