She loves water, at least, she loves to play in mud puddles. We would love to take her swimming in a real pond at some point, but we haven't gotten around to that yet.
I did a dry run with her, where I sat on the edge and had her get in with me, it worked and she was fine. Then we went and got the water and started dumping it in. She got nervous. She doesn't like water, of any sort, that falls from above.
So of course, I went and stood in the water and called for her and she immediately jumps in. I didn't realize that my swimming would be a requirement for her to swim. But I think she loved it and as she gets used to it more, she will be braver and get in by herself some time.
|At least I like water too!|
And the water was dirty when she got out because of her morning expedition in a mud puddle! Hopefully she will never have to seek out a mud puddle to play in since she has her very own pool.
