Fezzik Friday - 24 Weeks...

It's hard to believe it's Friday again already! Mom, Dad, Kes and I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving. It was particularly great here! I went swimming with Mom in the morning, and then I went swimming with Dad in the afternoon after he finished a little yard work.

We had warm weather, so I was happy for the chance to cool off with Dad. I went in the water all on my own! You can see the little shelf in the pool? Mom says it's called a "swim-out". It's just the perfect depth for me to stand on, and the water was just the right temperature.
I'm a real swimmer now. I can jump off the swim-out - this picture shows me right after I leaped into the water - and paddle around with whoever else is in the pool. (Kes can't go swimming until after her staples come out on Saturday. Sorry Kessie!) Mom stayed on the lanai and took pictures because she was just so darn proud of me.
I'm not afraid or anything! I jump in all on my own, and I've got a pretty mean dog paddle!
Dad kept me company as I paddled back to the shallow end. He just wanted to make sure I didn't get too tired, but I think I could do this all day! He also wants to make sure I learn that there is only one area of the pool where I can actually get out on my own. That's where the steps and the swim-out are.
Once I get to the stairs, I'm big enough now so that I can get out of the pool alone. Mom and Dad are really happy, because they said I'm now "waterproof". If I happen to jump or fall in the pool, they know I can get out, so they don't have to worry about me as much.
Here, Dad is congratulating me on my stellar corgi performance. He's says that I take to water almost as well as a retriever! In case you didn't know, Dad has become a pretty big fan of mine. I like him a lot, too.

Lovely photos. Fezzik really loves swimming and is so confident in the pool. So essential to know just how to get out again.

That's some pretty fabulous swimming there, Fez! Can you teach my Huskies to love water, too??? They're not nearly as brave as YOU are. :-)

Fez you are the best swimmer now. I can't believe we have snow and our pond is frozen while you are warm and swimming in the pool. Hmmm... Looks like you had a wonderful day and lots to be grateful for. Happy swimming...

Oh Fez, you're so darn cute! Just look at you swimming like a little fish. You're so lucky to have such good parents, worrying that you learn how to swim early on like this. I'd love to see you and your sister in the pool together when she's all better. Tell mommy that pool is gorgeous, and I loved all the photos she shared today! Be a good little one and give Kes a hug for me. Enjoy the rest of your weekend...are you sick of turkey yet??? hee hee hee! xo Paulette

Sweet post, Donna. The pool looks refreshing, but we are having a cold snap here. Enjoy your mild temps.
