Tallulah's First Swim

I've written about about Tallulah's sadness at the loss of her big sis, but as pictured here, sadness for Tallulah is far and away the exception to the rule.  Here she is enjoying her very first dip in the big pool (with BF Madge). The dog was about three parts terrified to one part happy about the whole experience overall.  I managed to snap this photo while she was giving me a tentative grin. The jury's still out on whether or not she'll be a "water dog", but I'd give it about a 50/50.  It's true she was terrified, but she did manage to settle down in our arms a few times and idle at "tolerant" for at least short intervals.  

We'll see.

Thanks for the suggestion! I didn't realize they made swim vests for dogs!
