Pet Pride: I'd rather be eating, thank you

Lindy says: "Hi Bozo. Here I am, coming out of a big lake in British Columbia, after my dad tried to get me to swim.
"I didn't want to swim, and I told him so, but you know what? He took me back there the next day and tricked me. We walked into the lake, which was fine, but he wouldn't let me sit down. He offered me a treat, and actually lured me out into deeper water where I had to swim.
"Wow! That was what I call sneaky, but I showed him: I ate the treat and then turned around and pulled him back to shore.
"It would have been much nicer if they had taken me for a picnic. I can swim, of course. I am a retriever. But I much prefer eating."

You made our human laugh. You are smart Lindy, in walking off after taking the treat! Our human don't exactly understand why you don't like to swim when retrievers are known to love water.

Chuckles! Lindy knows what it wants. Better not to cross his path. He'll swim at his own time! Nicely Kay!

Oh no, Lindy you are all wet. You know we kitties don't like to get wet but we thought doggies like you enjoyed swimming. Maybe you are part kitty.

Purrs,

Oh Lindy - at least you do know HOW to swim even if you prefer not... tomorrow you can read the first bit of the tale of Jade's adventure in the big wet stuffs. Ugh. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Let him swim alone, Lindy ! Or he should take Charlie for a swim, he loves it and would jump into all waters he sees !

I firmly believe that dogs are smarter than people! That retriever will get his revenge some day!
