Pool party- pictures & 1 movie

Hey guys, just like I promised, here is the post with pictures & movies attached!
This was my first pool party, EVER. I have never gotten into a real swimming pool.

When we first arrived I was let loose in the backyard, right away I took off to play with my siblings.

My first swim was not on purpose. I accidentally put my paw in, and after that I was wet! We then got put back on a leash and did dog obedience around the pool. After that one at a time we did obedience into the pool. (someone got into the pool and called us, once we got "pushed" in she took us for a little swim then pointed us to the stairs).

Once we finished with that, we were turned back loose for a little while, and my trainer went to change into another pair of clothes so she could get in the pool with me. A couple other people got into the pool to, and each puppy got to swim again. My trainer helped some of the dogs work on the "right" way to swim.

Hope you enjoy the pictures & one movie!
