Taking The Plunge


How to cool off in February in the north Atlantic Ocean:

1. First get your human to take you to the beach.....check.


2. Approach the 'cooling pool' gradually.....check.


3. Put an intense stare on face.....check.


4. Proceed to enter 'pool' as if it is summer.....check.


5. Keep moving ahead with head down.....check.


6. Make sure you are soaked from the knees down.....check.


7. Then, looking towards your human, begin to turn around.....check.


 8. Now that the legs are completely numb proceed to go back in.....check.


9. This time heading out further.....check.


10. Looking straight ahead pick up speed to cause a good splash.....check.


11. Look like you are enjoying this.....check.


12. Pause for a second.....check.


13. Then scare your human to death by heading out deeper.....check.


14. Then stop, turn around and sniff the water.....check.


15. Give your mouth a good rinse.....check.


16. And since it has been months doing this, dunk your head in completely.....check.


Sophie and I were at Conrads Beach yesterday. This is her favourite beach,
 as she has spent many a hot summer day here. 
 As you can see she was elated to be here.

Please note: No animal(s) were mistreated or in any danger during this shoot.

  1. Gasp! Were there animals nearby? So glad Sophie wasn't afraid of them.

    But please tell Sophie I didn't need lessons on how to cool off in February in the North Atlantic. Kind of a no-brainer. Really.

    1. Just Soph and me! Surprise!
      She overheats once she 'gets goin'.....and has no qualms about taking a dip....anytime!

  2. Sophie, did you need treatment for hypothermia after that short dip? I'm sure the movie producer had lots of treats for you, before and after. Lovely short series. Cheers from Jean.

  4. I am hoping not to see that Sophie had frozen in the next shot. Very brave puppy you have there, and bet she was really cold after doing this. BRRRR

    1. You know what Jeanne? She didn't feel a thing other than a tiny cooling sensation. She doesn't usually go in the water till April/May....but this day she needed to I guess. The 'Lab' in her takes over and she just does what feels right.

    1. It's all part of be 'Sophie'! If there's water around chances are she will be tempted to try it.

  9. haha, Sophie must be rather brave! My dog before she passed would always want to go swimming in the sea (ours is the north sea, and is very cold!) all year round, but then sit there feeling sorry for herself as she shivered away in the aftermath! Great commentary on your part too ;)
