Bella, The Water Dog

Last night before I started cleaning up supper, I let Bella out in the yard to play.  She doesn't usually get into too much trouble (aside from chasing bunnies and bugs) if we aren't out there with her so I didn't think much about it.  

After dishes, I got sidetracked and kind of forgot I put her outside until I heard her whining at the screen door.  Just before letting her in, I noticed she was soaking wet?!?!  She hadn't been in her baby pool since we emptied it and put it away because of the strong storms that we got on Tuesday.  

Then the light bulb went off!  This video below will give you an idea what she was probably up to while I was busy inside.  


With all the rain we had the night before she had resorted to entertaining herself because she's one Black Labrador that just can't be kept out of the water! 

And she doesn't discriminate.  

Baby pools, swimming holes or farm ponds.  

She just LOVES the water... and treats, car rides, sleeping in our bed!

So tell me, do you have a dog?  Are they crazy in love with anything particular like Miss Bella? 


  1. Haha! Too funny! We have a 5-lb. shorky who is quite the little "Miss Priss," so we don't worry about her getting anywhere near water. My parents have a black lab though, and she is exactly the same as yours...L.O.V.E.S swimming!

  2. Any dog of mine Fortunately, our Lab/Newfie mix enjoys it! I wish I could get her to jump and chase like that, though. If I throw a stick, she'll swim out to it, touch it, and come back. It's like she thinks that fetch is really tag...

    Your dog, though. I'm speechless. That's the best kind of dog to have!

  3. Haha! These are adorable! We don't have a dog yet but it's one of the things I'm most looking forward to about moving! :)

  4. haha so sweet she kept herself busy! It looks so nice and peaceful there!

  5. We have a yellow lab, he is crazy over sticks. We have a lot of trees in our yard and as soon as he goes out the door he will run out and grab a it is treat and someone might take it away :) Dogs are so funny!
