Watson discovers that water is not evil after all…

So Watson was one of those basenjis that felt water was pure evil… but as it turns out that if there are other dogs to play with in the water it isn't so bad really. We went on a hike with a bunch of other dog people, there were about a half a dozen of us with around nine or so dogs and Watson learned to go play in the lake 🙂

Here is the evidence...

First he hesitated at the beach with his sister...

But then he just waded right in…

Why didn't you tell me water was fun?

Same with Binti - in play she gets in up to her breast…

OMG - I love that last photo!

My trying dog will wade into the water up to his elbows.

Love it, he looks pretty confused, but happy

Adorable! Ava's a waterbaby, too. And all that splashing around tires them out… for a while! 🙂

Ok, so there's hope for my boy, will get him to the beach more this summer. The other dogs always look like they have so much fun at the beach in the water and he's on the hot sand looking at them. Very nice photo's.

Aren't you ashamed? One of those dog shaming people who exposes your dog to ridicule and shame! Posting pictures IN THE WATER on a basenji forum. ROFLMAO. Great pics. Tell him I'll keep his secret and shielded the monitor from my basenjis.

I think a little shame is good for the basenji soul, Deb 😃

After all they have a very high opinion of themselves…

LOL you have a point! 🙂
