Swimming with the brothers

I've been going to the store and been a busy resident dog taking care of the place and watching out for humans and dogs as they go by. I like watching so many things and more than that I love playing with my doggy brothers!

This swimming thing with the water happened a few days ago... the dog handlers of K9Kulture asked Mummy if she wants me to try swimming. Mummy was gracious enough to say "go ahead and try but Benny is a terrible swimmer and water averse". Thanks mum, that was just a lame excuse. Haven't you read my entry on swimming and showers???

Here I am sitting next to a nice handler and there's another corgi called Rocky that's on the ground playing chase the small white maltese!!!

And here we are just roaming around...

Later that afternoon I heard someone talking about SWIMMING!!! Mummy came around again and this time I think she gave permission for them to take me swimming. WHAT?!?!?! So here I am running around the pool side trying not to get caught.

But here, Aunty Cheryl the top-dog-handler managed to catch me and haul me toward the pool...AaaaaaaaaahH! (Notice the Goldens having a pawsome time in the pool.)

Here's pictures of me "enjoying" my swim at the indoor pool. See my bug eyes?

Ok, so after a while it wasn't so bad cos its cooling but its too tiring and water in my ears is something I dread. I need to rest now...

Mummy took me back to the store after the nice people there rinsed me off and dried me. I was so concussed that I barely stayed awake. My eyes closed and I slept like a stone all through the night as well. Didn't even wake up to drink or pee or crap.

But, that's a dog's life! =D

I don't blame you for not wanting to swim in the pool either - a dog's gotta be able to feel the bottom in the water hey!!

I loved the photos of you curled up in your basket - you look so sweet snoozing away.

Hi everyone!!!!
Thanks for all the "you look so cute sleeping" comments. When I'm sleeping, I'm in my happy place. =)

Not sure when I'm going into the pool next. Mummy says only once a week of pool activity for me. I have to watch my back - we longbodied dogs need to be careful.

This place is in K9Kampus. Its along Turf Club Road. You can find the map at our website:

That particular pool is for dayboarders at K9kulture, but there's an outdoor pool...almost ready but dunno which days its going to be open to the public yet.

Wee!!! My working life is great!
