Bobbing for Kongs

May 24th, 2007, 11:36 PM
So in an effort to teach Shamus to love water we filled up the doggie pool to see if he would maybe like that instead,since it is self contained and in our yard so without a current and deep water maybe he would feel more comfortable.
What we discovered is Shelby and him have a hidden talent lol.
They are professional Kong bobbers!! Here's what I caught.

Ok where did the kong go?

Is it in there Shelby?

There it is....but we can't lift it out!!

There is only one thing we can do!

Under goes Shamus!!

Under goes Shelby!!

Shelby demonstrating her fast recovery time!

Shamus perfecting his form lol:

And here they were tandem bobbing,but I was too slow and caught the end of it:

:lovestruck: How cute.

When I get possession of my new house at the end of June I'm gonna buy a small pool for Dracko to have fun in. He loves water and I don't get much of a chance to take him to any.

Well we decided the pool was a good option for us,since we do live in town and on super hot days Shelby likes to go and splash around in it.
It's not like we have access to a pond,river or lake nearby everytime we take them swimming its at least a 20 minute drive or more so the pool is a convenience...not as fun for them but convenient none the less.

May 25th, 2007, 01:50 PM

Sure looks like they were enjoying themselves... but, really - who had the most fun - you watching them or the doggies bobbing???? Tell the truth now :)

brilliant idea :thumbs up

May 25th, 2007, 05:30 PM
Awesome! :cloud9:

:laughing: They're too funny ! Mine don't even put a paw in their pool :sad: They think it's a huge water bowl :shrug:

Cool pool game, trippencherri. :thumbs up We have some real Kong lovers, but I suspect they'd rather let them drown than go after them--setters don't take to water very well! But Shamus and Shelby sure do look like they're having fun! :D

May 25th, 2007, 09:15 PM
Love the pics! I'm sitting here with a huge smile looking at them again!:D

May 25th, 2007, 09:31 PM
Oh those are just adorable. I just love how doogs get those quizzical looks on their faces when they are trying to figure stuff out.

Nice shots! :highfive:

May 25th, 2007, 09:36 PM
Great pics! They's be splashing about in no time!

May 26th, 2007, 09:06 AM
Cute pictures trippincherri. I'm sure they'll appreciate that kiddie pool when it starts to get really hot. Hours of entertainment for you!

May 26th, 2007, 10:02 AM
Thanks guys! And yes I admit it....I laughed so hard I was crying watching these two ha ha ha.
And I think this was good training for Shamus because yesterday he actually went for a swim!! He wasn't the most graceful swimmer but he had so much fun lol, and then we couldn't keep him away from the water.
I have some pics and video (I have to upload some video :rolleyes: ,I have a few that are good to watch) of his big swim yesterday,so when I have time this weekend I will post them!
