Yes, I know Labradors have webbed toes, but I still wondered how things would go with Lila’s first swim. Although she’s now six months old, she has had very little experience with water. (It doesn’t rain much here.)

The other morning the sun was shining brightly, Lila’s best friend Ochie (and owner Kiersten) had come to visit and there wasn’t a kangaroo in sight (please see “lila the labrador encounters a kangaroo” to grasp the full meaning of this). The timing seemed perfect to take the two dogs for a swim in our dam.
