Woke up today excited to be taking the dogs out. If they could read my mind, they would've heard me saying "Guys, we're going on a road trip today woo hoo and we'll be picking up your good friend Chopper on the way! You're gonna love it!!"
Funny thing is, moment I got to my friend's house and the Doberman saw us, his usual killer instincts went out the window. He started wagging his tail coz he recognised us. Chopper usually scares the living daylights out of people with his bark but the pugs are his friends so we get to see the other side of him. Phew coz I wouldn't wanna cross him.
He's an incredibly well-trained dog who would do anything to protect his owner from harm. He's been trained for protection. He's basically a 24/7 bodyguard (well, almost, that's until he sees my pugs he's off duty!)
My pugs are his smallest friends and incredibly, they all get along. Even drink from the same bowl when they're out tog. Quite a strange foursome but they click :)
Well, I'm not sure where I got the idea that all dogs swim coz the doberman was freaked when he went into the sea and was kicking up water faster than a wheel to stay afloat. Ok, calm down Chopper...shhh, it's ok. Moment he settled down, we took him back into the sea so he'd get used to it. He got better at it, no doubt but sorry to brag (bit of owner's pride here) but my lil Pickle was like a ballerina compared to the Doberman and my other 2 pugs combined!
Harley and Ruby came out looking like drowned rats. They were paddling vertically in a panic. It was hilarious!
Only Pickle glided around gracefully as though she'd been swimming all her life. We tried to teach them how to swim without being in a frenzy. They were like small kids. They got scared when you took your supporting hand away.
They were running up and down the beach. You could tell they were really excited. They were fascinated by everything.
What a great day spent with my four legged kids. The dogs are loving being out here in Port Dickson. Nothing like quality time with the fellas outdoors. They're "LIVING THE MOMENT" I'm having fun just watching them! :)
