To me, my animals are my kids, so if there was open water somewhere, I would be there watching my "kids" like a hawk.

I have cats. They freak out when even a little water touches them. My sister's huskies love going swimming in the summer. It's a good way for them to cool off.

my guys love the water so I do, though sometimes I wish they didn't love it so much, like when its yucky out and they go find the river to swim in and then make a mess of my house!

Eegor can swim, so he's fine next to open water :]

Both of my dogs are terrified of water! Every summer we put both of them in the pool and guide them to swim towards a set of the stairs in case they ever fall in. So for about a month after they hug the wall each time we let them out back and get this haunted look if you speak to them from the pool area :)!

the first thing we did with our pups was to toss them into the pool and teach them where the stairs were. so, in case they fell in while we weren't watching they could find their way out and not drown.

No way! I have a dachshund mix who doesn't even pause when running towards the river. She goes right in which was kinda surprising because most dachshunds hate water, it must be the bijon in her...

I've got a Lab, so he practically lives in the water!

My pups LOVE swimming. Nothing makes them happier than hanging out near the river on a warm summer day, someone tossing a tennis ball into the water for them to fetch. :) The older one, Sassy, looks hilarious when she swims because her tail sticks straight up out of the water! :P

my big shepherd mix is terrified of the water- so he stays far away from my parents' pool and the river. what a big baby!
