This Summer, NewMama and I had the opportunity (and permission!) to allow Ramsay in his Pappy's pool and test his innate swimming abilities. Dogbert did not disappoint! He swam perfectly fine without any help, but we bought him a lifejacket in case those little legs got too tired.
He hasn't been brave enough to jump into the water himself but swims happily once he's eased into it by his mom, and is comfortable enough to "water-fetch" a frisbee and his sharkfin floatie!
