As we were on a walk, we came across this family with their dog. It was playing in the water, and Gizmo was VERY curious and wanted to say hello.
He ran back and forth along the edge of the water, at times daring to get his paw wet.
Just as I was talking to the lady about how Gizmo has only been in the water once in his life time, and that was when he was a pup, Gizmo took to a run and charged the water. I noticed he attempted a "kick" at the water as if to try to run on the surface. But sadly Gizmo is no Jesus Basenji, and he went PLUMP right into the wetness! :p
And there he was, shocked over what has happened, and once again that very familiar expression came forth. A slight unease as the water "swallows" him. He tried to back off, only to go deeper. Suddenly he took one doggy paddle, and SPLOOSH managed to move forward before he lost contact with the bottom. And ran back to land.
Luckily the lady had a camera with her and took some pictures. These are the ones she sent to me:

In the water!
Finally the dog came on land and Gizmo got to say hello.
