Mayo in the Maury
Our sweet Mayo has never liked the water. At the dog park in Seattle they even have a beach for the dogs to swim. Mayo hated it. My grandparents have a pool in their backyard, and although she loves to visit Bubby and Papa, sometimes we get in the pool. Mayo hates that. She does not like to see her family in the water.
Well, last weekend we had a picnic down by the Maury river in BV, and MAYO GOT IN THE WATER! She went in all the way up to her "knees" or whatever you call that part on a dog's leg. Some water even splashed onto her chest! And then...she PUT HER FACE UNDER THE WATER to get a stick! Then she got out as fast a she could, shook more than necessary, and settled down in the shade to worry about her boys who kept going in farther and farther.
It may not seem like much, but for our neurotic Mayo, it was a big step. And we are so proud of her!
