Of course, Pallo only goes swimming for a good reason, like a ball.
Where as Koira, though she dearly loves playing fetch in the water, will go swimming even without any reason to.
Koira seriously loves playing fetch at this little beach. It is just off the main walking trail, really close to the parking lot. In the summer when the fields are no longer open to off leash dogs, we do the walking trails more, and Koira always wants to stop and play here.
What do you think, does she care that it is technically still too cold for real swimming?
As annoying as it is, Koira loves playing fetch at this beach so much that simply walking down there elicits excited jumping, body slamming, and barking in demand for the ball to be thrown.
I know I shouldn't reinforce that kind of behavior, but really, I like playing like this too. And, as long as she only does it in the one place, it isn't too bad. Besides, could you say no to this face?
Hope all of you are thawing out and getting to see the beginnings of a glorious new spring.
