This is four-month-old Leila (a Coonhound/Lab mix) learning how to swim at the “Puppy Paddle,” an annual event held at the public pool in Bowling Green, Ky., at the end of swimming season. Owners and their furbabies are invited to come and swim before the pool is drained. It was a blast, and sparked Leila’s love of the water. Now, at one-year-old, I can’t keep her out of it!
