The stomping ground of Ramsay the Dachshund!

the german water dog

Ramsay's relationship with water has always been a fickle one.  He has never minded being bathed, and lately has even started positioning himself under the bathtub tap to maximize his exposure to the warm water.  He willingly takes swigs of water from the hose whenever we're watering the garden - to a point where he has gotten himself soaked!  In contrast, he was tentative at best getting into his Pappy's swimming pool this past summer, and often had to be held by his life vest and "dipped in".  At that point, he would promptly swim back to the steps and get out - content enough to just stare at the pool water.  Imagine our surprise when little "dox cousteau" willingly waded into the cold lake!

Hey Ramsay! Looks like fun! I love baths and the beach, but only when the water's warm. Thanks for Auggie's birthday wishes! Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
P.S. You have such big paws!
