It was a hot afternoon here today, around 88F, so MK and I walked Bela down to the creek and let her swim. She was miserable! She's a good and strong swimmer (despite the assumption that ALL dogs are good and strong swimmers, this is not the case...my brother had a yellow lab that nearly drown in a pond when he got in water where he could no longer stand and had to be rescued), but Bela really hates water. The second we got back home she rolled in the rotting carcass of a dead baby bird out in the yard to mask the scent of wet beagle. It worked, one stunk worse than the other, but you know, dog logic escapes me.
