Lucky Loves Swimming

    Last year my humans bought me a small kiddie pool and tried to surprise me with it. It had the head of a dog on it, because I guess puppies could also use it. When I saw it I was so scared I barked at it and jumped over a 6 ft. fence! I was brought back and placed in the pool but I didn’t like it. I wouldn’t even just put my feet in the water. When my daddies went swimming I liked to watch and bark. I love to bite the water when it comes out a garden hose and I wanted to bite the splashes!

    Finally daddy Kevin carried me into the water with him.  I even started swimming without anyone teaching me! After a while I learned to climb on the ladder and jump in and then when I wanted to get out I learned to go to the ladder and climb out! I love playing catch in the pool and biting the splashes that people make. I’m not supposed to go in alone, but a couple of times I jumped in by myself.

    All the time I am in the pool Cato is on the edge barking constantly because he wants to play, but he is too afraid to go in. Kevin even took him in the water and he could swim too, but he really doesn’t like to go in the pool. The pool is closed for the year, so I will  have to wait until next year. So sad.

My name is Lucky!

 

    
    My name is Lucky and I am a spayed female Cattle Dog. I weigh 46.5 lbs. I am shorter, but heavier than my brother Cato.  I am a bit hyper and love to play all of the time. I love to play ball, go swimming and beat up Cato. When I play ball with Cato I usually always get the ball. My favorite toy is my donut, a hard rubber ring. My vet said that I am a hoarder because I hoard all of our toys and won’t let Cato have anything. I love treats and I can eat mine very fast and sometimes manage to steal Cato’s. I do not like my crate and when my daddies put me there when they go out I bark and howl until they come back. I love to go for walks but I do not behave very well. I also bark at just about everything I see, especially kids playing, because I want to play with them. I love to go swimming in the pool and playing ball there, but Cato is too afraid to come in the water with me.

My name is Cato!

    My name is Cato and I am a male cattle dog, but I’m neutered. At my last vet’s appointment I weighed 45.5 lbs. I am a total lap dog!  I am very laid back and I love to cuddle with my two dads on the couch. My favorite activity is sleeping, but I also love to run around and play fight with my sister Lucky. I always try to sit on the laps of my visitors, but I guess I am too big now. I love to play ball, but I still haven’t gotten the knack of bringing the ball back to the person who threw it. Usually Lucky steals it from me as soon as I get the ball. I like to go for walks and I am very well behaved, unlike my sister. I love playing with my human neighbor kids, who are triplets.  I love my sister Lucky, even though she steals my treats and toys. I do not like to be separated from her even for a little while.

Our first day in our new home.

This is how we arrived at our new home, in a Lowe’s cardboard box. We didn’t stay in the box in the car on the way home and we didn’t stay in the box very long when we got home.

We stayed in a little pen in the from foyer of our house until our daddies got us each a crate. We cried all night long and soon learned to climb over this pen.
