First Actual Swim!


I really don't have much to say, except that Gibson had his first actual swim on Saturday! He has never swam, just kind of has waded around in water.. Well, my parents opened their pool this weekend, so that meant seeing what Gibby could do! Here is a video of me and my mom (and Coal) trying to get Gibson to swim at a lake and then finally just putting him in the pool where he would have to do it haha (actual swimming is at about 1:23):



Another proud mamma moment for me! :)

Hahaha! That was great! Thanks for sharing it. Hehe. Looks like Gibson likes water and swimming about as much as Theo does. Theo will go about chest deep and no farther.

You are so lucky that Gibson likes to swim. Luna is terrified of the water!

Adorable! The music was perfect too!
We always wondered if corgis could swim, because of their short legs.
Now we know!!

that was adorable!!! I bet if it gets hotter he might get braver to take a dip!

Have a nice Memorial Day!

That was adorable! :)

Cool! I saw it first at mycorgi.com, with Teggie, who loves Gibson's style. :)

Yay, Gibson can swim! Corgis are naturaly disadvantaged as they can only wade out so far... but looks like he did a good job at the pool :)

You've been tagged! Check out my blog to see what's up :)

Haha how cute! My Dachshund had the same problem. They're so long that their butts float and the can't pull themselves or jump out of the water LOL.

All the best,
Allison

Donna - haha, I know most of the video is him shaking his booty! :)

JuLo - I guess they just don't get the concept of swimming, do they? :)

Kerby - That would be great! :) Lucy is an awesome swimmer, maybe she could teach Gibson a thing or two! :)

Sabrina - Yeah, Gibson does like water, he even gets excited for bath time :)

Corgidogmama - haha, I actually just stuck the music on to hide my annoying voice! Glad you liked it :)

Kelly said...

Betty - I hope so! He gets so hot, he will need to cool off somehow! :)

Trish, Christina, & Christiane - Glad you liked it :)

Ivy & Allison - I guess that long body/short legged combo wouldn't make it easy to swim would it?? He actually reminds me of our former pet hedgehog when she swam! Her body would wiggle from side to side like she couldn't keep herself stable.. Maybe Gibson needs better tummy muscles lol

Ester - Oh no, I'm scared! haha Thanks for the tag, I will try to get to posting that! :)

Puppers swimming! Life is good. What's the song, by the way? I'd like to know.

Kelly said...

Hi Laurie! It's "Hummingbird" by Wilco :)
