Not all dogs can swim

I was thinking back to when we got first got Georgie.  When she was around 10 weeks old, we let her out in the garden and she was having a rare old run around.  At the bottom of our garden we have a pond – it isn’t very big but it is quite deep.  I didn’t think for one minute that she would try and ‘walk on water’ but she did and sunk.  Boy did I panic! I was on the verge of jumping in after her.  Then her head popped up and she started doggie paddling around the pond.  No worse for wear but she wouldn’t have been able to get out of the pond on her own as the sides are too deep.  I just wanted to say be careful of any lakes, ponds or deep water near you.
