A Side Note

Up until now I've been pretty good about keeping the blog on topic. That topic being training and not really a chronicle of Gauis' life. So I thought I'd give readers a heads up right here. There is going to be no accounts of training in what is to follow. Just a simple account of a good day in the life of my pup. So if you aren't interested in that you can stop reading here. And I'll return you to your regularly scheduled training blog next post. :) This post is all good times and ice cream.

Baywatch dog. Look out David Hasselhoff.

I took Gauis to a swim party with his dog scout troop. He had a lot of fun.

Juneau is a swimming machine

All of his doggy friends were there...

This is Susie, she's in his obedience class

Here is Gauis' swimming video (Wouldn't be a blog post without a video)


Gauis shaped otter, or the genuine article? You deiced.

This is Dazzle. When we first met her she didn't know how to swim. Now she does dock diving!

Gauis jumped in and out of the pool until he got tried. Then he barked at toys in the pool but was to tired to go get them. Which he enjoyed but was a bit grading on the nerves after a while.

He also can't get out the pool by himself, Sean or I have to pull him out. So instead of swimming to us, signaling his need to leave the pool. He instead swims to the closest edge and just slams his head into it over and over again until someone rounds the pool to where he is to fish him out. He's defiantly lower maintenance when he swims in the River.


On the way home we stopped at an awesome place for dinner.

The weather was really nice so we ate outside.

Sean was really grumpy cause I made him go out of our way to get here. But he cheered up when the food came.


Gauis' got to eat with us which was nice. He was not a fan of our waitress though and barked at her.

Until she brought him a bowl of ice cream with whipped cream and a milk bone in it. Then he decided she was all right.

Uuuummm... I'm still hungry.

He finished the whole thing before we were even half done with our food and he got it after us. Pig.

The End.

My older dachshund is a swim-aholic! She LOVES to swim now. Lucky enough we have stairs for her to get in and out of the pool. :)
