{ Swimming Adventure }
Last weekend, Mummy suddenly decided to bring me to the beach since Daddy came with the car. They've been talking about it for eons, and finally, they put the plan into action.
Mummy had to pack plenty of things such as towels, water, food, mat, toiletries etc. Everything was stuffed into a big beach bag and we were ready.

That's me, sitting comfortable on Mummy's lap at the front seat. I think I was smiling.
I was quite excited, looking out at the scenery and cars zooming past.
But it soon got tiring to sit upright and I made myself comfortable.
When we reached, it started raining!! Luckily it stopped after awhile and Mummy carried me and eased me into the water. It was my first time afterall, and I'm not quite sure if I can really swim.




Hmm...I was thinking hard about how I should kick my legs to stay afloat.


And when Mummy let me into the water, everything came naturally!! My legs began to kick vigorously and my tail started wagging.

I was quite fast really, but I keep trying to swim to Mummy and cling onto her. She had to keep running away and I had to keep swimming faster to get to her.

I was really enjoying myself! But it's really quite tiring since my legs are so short and I've a long body, my legs have to kick really hard!!

Mummy pulled a fast one on me, and I had to do a u-turn to get to her. Mummy almost thought I was going to drown!


And after a few short swims, I finally got out. Gosh, it was tiring!

Then I started shaking myself dry. Why do I look so funny here?

There was quite abit going on at the beach you know, so much sand, so many people.

Yawns. I've sand on my face.


I had a shower soon after, and it was so cold!!

And where was daddy the whole time? He didn't bring clothes and didn't get wet, he just hung around and laughed at us. He carried me while Mummy had her bath though, and it was so comfortable and warm. See me hugging his arm?
I'm looking forward to my next adventure already!

Chinook, you're such a good swimmer! I can't swim and I hate water. How do you do it? You should be in the Olympics!

Hi Chinook,

Seems like you had a wonderful time swimming. I wonder if I'll do as well.

My humans have always wanted to bring me to Sentosa for a swim, but they have never put it into reality, as they have no idea where the 'dog bathing points' are.

They are not keen to let a 'salty dog' onto the car without first having a bath. Care to share where the bathing points are?

Sweet Licks,
Sugar

hi sugar,

my parents have postponed this swimming trip for a long time too! i 'showered' at these taps which were for hoomans to wash their legs. they are near the hoomans toilets where they bathe and hard to miss. however, the water is cold and it'll be easier if u got a small pail as my mummy had a hard time pressing the tap and holding me at the same time. =)

Lotsa licks,
Chinook
