8.17.14 - Sailor Needs Help from Dad to Swim1
It was a little scary at first, but she got the hang of it!


Sailor, a gentle giant of a Mastiff, desperately wanted to join her family in the pool and escape the Tucson heat, but she was scared of the water.  With just a little help from dad, she’s on her way to earning her name.



Having an extra-large life jacket made the process much easier.  Sailor cautiously waited at the edge until her dad guided her into the water.  Thankfully, she was very calm and a quick learner.  Now she doesn’t have to feel left out anymore, and can get some exercise without overheating.





“Our dog sailor is getting better at swimming,” says proud papa Brad.  “A great way to cool her off on a hot Arizona summer day.”
