Water dog: fail

Seriously, this dog does NOT like water. She'll sit on shore and watch other dogs playing in the water in horrified fascination, and she doesn't mind if she falls in the water while hunting something, but as far as playing in the water herself, no way. I thought maybe if I waded in she'd follow me... obviously not.

On the plus side, this means I never come home with a dog soaked in filthy ditch water.

Haha! Yup, that's like our Akemi. When she was ~3 months old, I tugged at her to enter the water. She balked and all anyone saw were claw and butt marks along the sand where she tried to resist. I thought dogs loved water. Boy was I was proven wrong. We did draw the same positive conclusion that at least we won't have muddy paws and wet and moldy smelling dirt clod fur. Isn't it great? :)
