Last week, when we went to Shelby Farms Park of course I went swimming in the lake. Fuzz has never come swimming in the pool or the lake. So that day, I thought if I spoke in specific retriever language, maybe that part of him would listen to me. I called him to come swimming in the lake with me. Well, while he didn't swim, he came closer than he ever did to the water, but then laid down in the mud and watched. I guess he didn't yet understand his retriever instinct that was beckoning him. I will try again next time.
