Abel Goes Swimming

Brought Abel to the Responsible Dog Ownership 2008 event at Central Park on Sunday. He was very excited as there were many people and dogs there.

Then I decided to bring Abel for a swim in the lake in the park.

Abel refused to go into the water and I had to pushed him in. He came right up.

I pushed him a few times until he got all his legs in the water. Then he realized its not so bad afterall.

Testing out the fetch game in the water with the leash. I was a bit worried he will swim away!

Then off he went! 1st swimming attempt was quite hilarious as he was splashing water all over the place!

2nd attempt was slightly better and after a few times, no more splashing water :)

He absolutely loves it.

That's me, trying to pull Abel away and trying not to get the poor man all wet.

I didnt bring my camera on Sunday. All the photos are taken by Chew Yean. Thanks CY for the lovely photos!

Also, one of the regular bloggers came by to say Hi to me and Abel. I forgot to ask for her name! So please leave your name here if you read this :)

A lab who doesn't dive into teh water as soon as he can? Weird! Glad you've shown him river fun!

Oh Abel didn't know what water was? I am so so happy Abel lives with you now and can have so much fun in the water!

Hi, do you mean me? I'm HeeChul's mom, eiko!
I actually recognize Abel and her ball first before i saw you by the trees! I forgot to ask about the Spice Cats, how are they?
It would be nice if they have such gathering for cat owners too! HeeChul needs to mix around, but she's just so... anti-social!
