Somehow, in the space of about a month, Bella has gone from screaming as though she's being tortured when asked to take her swimmies off to casually swimming about the pool all on her own. I always knew she had the skills to swim, she just wanted to be in control (and piss me off) of when and how she did it.
We've been to the pool a few times this week and today she just hopped right in and took off. She looks more like a Golden Retriever than Michael Phelps but now we are confident that if she ever falls into a pool, she can swim to safety and that's all we really care about right now.
Sorry for the very poor video quality. I used my new cell phone but plan to get better video of her soon.
