Layla loves the water.
Honestly, by 10 am she begins ringing the bell on our back door to go outside.
I put a bell on the back door when she was a puppy and trained her to ring it when she needed to potty.
GSDs are incredibly smart dogs...have I mentioned that before? ;)
Anyhoo, she's learned that we will come running when the bell rings; she runs out as soon as the door is opened and takes off for the steps into the pool, where she stands and looks at me as if to say, "Is it time yet?"
If anybody begins the process of putting on a swimsuit, she starts running through the house like a crazy
"IT'S TIME! IT'S TIME! I KNOW IT'S FINALLY TIME!"
Layla's favorite water games include:
1. Throw the ball for me so I can swim to the deep end and bring it back to you.
2. Splash the water in my face so I can try to eat it.
3. Jump off the diving board so I can "catch" you and escort you back to the shallow end.
4. Splash the water up high so I can jump up like a Great White Shark and try to catch the splash.
In the photo below, she is playing Game #4 :)
Layla takes her responsibility as lifeguard very seriously as well. She never takes her eye off my youngest. If someone else is playing with the youngest, and she starts yelling, Layla comes running.
Lizzie, sunning in the picture below, is not allowed any closer to the pool than this. Lizzie almost drowned in our pool this past winter and would have if Layla had not alerted us that something was wrong.
Enjoying my summertime at home with my family!
How bout you??
