Gomez is really getting good at swimming!

Yesterday I tried him with a lifejacket, just so he gets used to it -

and with his new water toy:

I can't get him out of the water!

Today we went to the beach and we had to literally drag him away after 2 hours!

Is he wearing his sunblock? My husband just landed in Sydney from Australia - I packed 2 sunblocks for him but in his mind "he doesn't burn" - am expecting a very red, swollen face on his return. My Eskimo likes to swim as well, but doesn't get too many chances!

Yep, that's my water baby!

Snowdancer, the vet said he has so much hair he doesn't need sunblock, I hope your husband is not too crispy! Actually, as we're coming into winter the UV index is not as high, but still strong!

jiorji, his tail does move like an otter's! It's like a little rudder always out of the water with his floaty bum...

And maybe we will have to rename him Flipper!!

You know, they keep talking about how it's fall, and winter is coming soon, but it's 78 and sunny today so we're going swimming again!

The sea is getting colder, but not cold enough that you would say brrrrr!

Yesterday we stayed at the beach most of the afternoon and it was deserted and very pleasant!
