That doesn't deter my husband. He was determined that Zoe should learn to love to swim, just like the big dogs. And she did.
Look at the smile!!
And yes, she did go back in on her own. She wasn't just swimming because he forced the issue, or rather, she was the first time, but then she was in and out of the lake as much as the big dogs were!
And then, of course, there's my husband's favorite trick. The "Wait" command. Our big dogs are very familiar with this trick, but Zoe and both of my mother-in-law's dogs took a few attempts to get it right. Husband is patient. Dogs learn. Everyone is happy in the end.
But yes, everyone is happy in the end.
