Delmonte Lake Adventure (Part II)

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July. Sid wasn’t a huge fan of the fireworks, but luckily they subsided by midnight so we could get some shut-eye.

As promised, we have footage of Sid taking a dip…

But first, a little more about our trip to Delmonte Lake. Before actually going into the water, Sid got to ride on a paddle boat which included a hand-held umbrella to keep him cool.

I’m not sure if he even realized that he was riding on an actual boat – he seemed pretty excited just watching the wake from the rudder.

We also got to spend lots of time relaxing and playing potato catch.

Sid’s favorite hang-out spot was definitely the kitchen. I think he was hoping that he might procure an extra snack or two from one of the other people staying at the house that aren’t as accustomed to his “manipulate-the-humans-by-cuteness-to-get-treats” skills.

And now for what you’ve all been waiting for…THE SWIMMING!

I’m so proud of my little pug! He did so well in the water! I guess pugs do have more in common with the walrus than just the face. Unfortunately, I don’t have any footage from the next day when he did some more swimming and actually did a few laps WITHOUT his neon-green floatie. He didn’t seem to have any problems swimming without the floatie – so maybe they exist not so much for the dog’s sake but for the over-protective paranoid human’s sake.

Sid had a great time at the lake house and he would like to thank our friends Anna & Andrew for taking him on such a fun adventure!

    Sid you are a natural at that swimming stuff! Dad thinks we need a paddle boat. And how handy to have a handle on your vest!

    Bravo Sid! I wish I could swim but I’m too scared. Maybe someday I’ll be as brave as you! I don’t comment much (my human rarely let’s me use her thumbs… something about being on the computer at work too much… Humph!) but we are regular readers here in Portland, Oregon and love your adventures together and never miss a posting of yours!

    Hope the fireworks didn’t bother you too much and you had a nice 4th of July!

    Keep cool man,
    Reggie the Pug

    Impressive! But why should we have expected anything less from such a pug athlete! Without her best on, Payton would start to sink like an anchor if we didn’t support her from behind. I’m going to show your video to D&D to build up their confidence…as soon as we can get the pumps working right, they’ll be going for a dip in the pool at gammy and gampy’s house. 🙂

    He was having such a good time! I loved seeing his curltail wag as he swam. 🙂 I think we may need to get our pug, Branch, a life vest, too.
