i love swimming!

well in the last week or so foster has discovered that he likes, no LOVES, swimming! we used to try and get him to swim when he was a puppy last summer but he was def not interested. now that the spring thaw is in full swing here in massachusetts dave has started throwing sticks into one of the ponds at the WMA at his work and foster has been bounding in after them to fetch them up! well at first,when the water was too deep, he would pace back and forth in the shallow water looking at the stick. after some very enthusiastic encouraging by daddy he eventually starting swimming out to get it! after doing that a few times he then just started swimming out on his own! such a good boy! as you can imagine daddy is very excited to have his retriever actually retrieving in the water!
