Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending my first doggy swim - there are many happening in Lidos all around the country, but I went to Cheltenham to Sandford Parks Lido. I attended as a customer...taking my God-dog Coco - a normally happy swimmer, but she decided that she prefers swimming in lakes and rivers chasing ducks than bobbing around in a swimming pool! My dog Bertie is a cautious swimmer and is recovering from an ear infection which is why I went with Coco this time.
Despite the disappointment of her not thoroughly enjoying the experience, myself and my mum loved the event...lots of happy doggy swimmers and even happier owners!!! It was lovely to see lots of dog-related products on offer on the stalls set up around the pool and I couldn't resist taking my camera for some wet-dog photography!
