Swimming lessons continued

Adam

Adam seems to be doing really well with his swimming lessons. He has been weak in the hind-end for the last couple of days, but he had no problems swimming the length of the pool by himself tonight.

Greyhounds are funny. Other dogs come out of the pool walking, every greyhound we have ever taken sorta collapses. We carry them over to their cushion, lay them down, provide a pillow and cover them up. They lay there, couch potato like and don’t move until it is their turn again.

In the mean time, Karen takes advantage of the comatose state and cleans ears and trims nails. It is so nice to have a nurse on duty. It’s a win-win situation for me.

  1. I think swimming is hard work for a greyhound! I am going to get Barbie a float coat to see if it makes it easier for her, and make her more likely to actually swim 🙂

  2. This post has me laughing myself silly. First, I love the swim caps. They look so cute. Second, this paragraph brought tears of laughter to my eyes…”Greyhounds are funny.

  3. It’s probably related to the blood pressure crash they do when you bathe them sometimes. It’s been pretty well researched. Funny physiology with thsese hounds makes them react in odd ways at times.
