K...so I figured out how to link previous threads to new threads---I'M ON A ROLL!

Here's my Hello and Welcome to the forum thread: http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=60156

I figured out how to link a video thread of Gryphon--a Springer Spaniel that doesn't know how to swim....attempting to swim :eek: We have TRIED for 4 years to teach him how to swim and--he just doesn't get it :wall: By the way the graceful Retriever showing off and trying to teach Gryphon is Bailey...:rip:my sweet Golden Angel

On another note....one of these thing just doesn't belong here...one of these thing just isn't the same.....

In closing---these are my very much loved furbabies

I had to look pretty long before I saw Kitty! :laughing:

I wish I could download video. :sad: I'd love to see Bailey in action...and Gryphon trying to swim :D Maybe we'll have to make Gryphon an honorary setter. The Pack doesn't swim, either... In fact, the Pack doesn't do water...period. :o

Yeah the Kitty picture reminds me of the good old days of having to sit and watch Sesame Street :laughing::laughing:

Gryphon would love to be an honorary member of the "English" Setter Hazelrunpack--especially if the pack doesn't do water either.

What's that old saying hazel...you can lead a DOG to water but you can't make him swim? :sorry: ...twisted it up a bit but HAD TO SAY IT!! :)

He did get it briefly near the end :thumbs up

Unfortunately Growler--he just doesn't get it. When we take him out in the water, he tries to climb up us and wraps his front paws around my neck. He's always been a great hugger. :cool:

What Gryphon lacks in swimming skills he more then makes up for it in cuteness.and he deserves a big E for effort.

Thanks angeldogs--Gryphon has always received A's for adorable, B for a Blast, C for well...just plain Cute, D cause he's just a Darling and an F for FUN :) The E for Effort compliments all the above because he puts so much Effort into his A,B,C's :laughing:

:laughing:

All that book-larnin' and he still can't get the hang of swimmin'!

Well, for sure the Pack doesn't do water, and since he's English, Gryphon can join up any time! :thumbs up Always room for one more (don't tell hubby....think he'd notice a springer in there? :o)

I had a pure white kitty too. He was almost 19 when we had to put him down. :sad: He had us well trained too. :thumbs up
