Water dog!

Labradors are known to love water. This week we noticed that Skabenga was snorkeling in and pawing the large dog water dish in the garden. Rina and I went to an Indian shop in town and bought a large plastic bowl. We filled it with water and then tried to entice him into it. Of course, just like when a parent tries to show off with his child, the child doesn't co-operate...
He laps at the water as it pours into the bowl ; the oblong silver bowl is their drinking water 

Anyway, we had great fun trying to entice him to get INTO the bowl. 

The next day, Sunday, Skabenga bounded into the entertainment area where we were having lunch. His paws and snout were wet. When we checked his plastic swimming bowl, it was muddy with grassy bits floating in it. The boy had finally realized what the bowl was meant for! 

Happy Monday to you all! 


  1. Oh, how fun!! He is such a cutie!! I love your pics of him!! Keep them coming!! Have a great new week!!

  2. Oh Jo I loved the video. Now isn't that typical, he did it when you were not looking!

  3. Wait until you pass by a pond ! Charlie loves to swim it's difficult to hold him back when the water is really too dirty ! Skabenga probably thinks that the bassin is too small to swim in ! lol !

  4. Hello Jo, Skabenga is so cute. My old labs loved swimming in our lake. Cute photo and I enjoyed the video. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!
