Water is a chemical substance with the chemical formula H2O.  Its molecule contains one oxygen (O2) and two Hydrogen (H) atoms connected by covalent bonds.
Yep.  I totally went all smart on you.

And as the smart dog that I am... I know the proper ways in which to enjoy water...  Watch, and learn.
See?  Water allll around me.  Not water in that can.

I also know how to be safe around water...
Safety first.
 Now... the question here... do I enjoy water?  Lets walk through this together... 
I wasn't too thrilled with this idea...
Notice the bag of treats in the background that mom used to
bribe me into this pathetic excuse of a pool?
NEVER thrilled with this Bath Time idea.
Seriously... What's the need?
Now you expect me to go in there?!
I guess I can give it a shot...
(potato chips were involved)
HOLY CRAP!  Where's the GROUND?!?!?
Thank goodness for my life jacket... otherwise I would have just sank.
Why are you throwing my toys away?!
How can you call this fetch if I'm not running?
Please put it back on the boat so I can keep swimming.
What do you mean I have to rest????
I'll keep look out for some ducks...
Found one!
Ok.... let's go back in!
I left my toy on the boat for a reason, DAD.
I warned you... I'm not getting it this time.
BOL!  See dad... not fun going all that way to get it, is it?
Want me to throw it again, Dad?
Now... the Lake water is okay.  I do enjoy it.  It's fun to swim in, and I like to sneak drinks from it when mom isn't looking (She yells at me). However, my favorite part of water?
Drying off in the sun!
Not to be confused with "Sun Bathing"... that's a lady dog thing.
Hehe, I even leave peemail so everyone knows I was at the lake!
What?  Not supposed to do that?
ps. that's my crazy dad in that hat... weirdo.
See this?  That's my float... so I get to cool off in the water
and use ZERO amounts of energy!  I just sit there and float
around... and I visit everyone.  Very best part of water!
 So, that's my story about water.  I have found a new blog friend named Reilly and he's having this fun contest about water!  So, I thought I'd join in the fun!  Check out his blog by clicking on his name!

This contest was super fun to enter... but... now I really miss the lake!  Dad's putting the boat in the water on Saturday, but mom said it's still too cold for me to swim... Silly mom.  


  1. Corbin, I think you have a pretty good handle on water. You are brave to swim in it. It is skeery. Sunbathing...AHHhhhhhhh...nothing better in the world. Your mom is super cool to have a float especially for you. Heck, I might even get in if I had a float. As of now, pools and lakes are pretty much like acid rain to me.


  2. Awesome post dude! You are one cool dog and soooo brave - don't you know water makes you shrink - I bet you were at least 5" shorter after that dunkin - no longer a big tall great dane - oh - your not a great dane???? So glad you called on by my blog - love new buddies and we have added you to our giveaway.

  3. what a fun post!!! I can't wait to bring ours to the river for the summer and see if they like swimming too!

  4. Oh Corbin, this post is too funny! I name you King of the Water Sports, Dude! Mom got me a float at a garage sale but I haven't used it yet... still to cold here. There was frost on the grass this morning!!!

  5. Cool! I'll be right over! Looks like fun!

  6. Hi Corbin
    My lakes (Tahoe and that big one called Pacific Ocean) are toooo cold but I still DIP my tootsies in them. But my Pool!!!! So into my pool!
    Love Noodles

  7. I love the floaty thing. That looks like the best way to enjoy the water. And I don't blame you for making you dad go get your toy, he was the one that kept throwing it in the water.

  8. Corbin dude! You will have to teach me how to swim this summer. I have never tried it...

    When can we play?
    Mom hasn't helped me blog in forever. She has taken up boxing and is out every night. I hate boxing!
    Hope to play soon!

  9. Corbin - great post for Reilly - you made it so interesting. We have never been in any water other than the rain and a bath. We so wish we could test out swimming in a lake. We agree with you, what's the point of throwing your toys away if the peeps just want you to go get them?? Silly humans! Good luck in the contest.

  10. Looks like you were having a fantastic time. But it looks way too deep for us.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  11. This was a great post Corbin!
    LOL! You are awesome! Good luck in the contest!

  12. You are very brave, I don't like any kinds of water. It was funny to make your dad get your toy, BOL!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  13. Hi Corbin, looks like you had a blast of a day. Love the photo of you 'drying off'. Heaps Cool! No worries, love Carol.

  14. I don't think you would have sunk without a life jacket... I might be mistaken, but I think all dogs instinctively know how to dog paddle.

    Looks like you had a really good time. Can you send me one of those floatie things? Oh, and a lake too? Thanks!

  15. We just love your resting pose, Corbin, the one with you sitting on the seat cushion! You are too cool!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  16. I love your swimming pictures. And how much fun did you have being on a boat?

  17. Hey Corbin! You are quite the olympic swimmer! I like water, too, except bath water! BOL! I am going to go visit your new friend.

    Your pal, Pip

  18. Thanks fur sharing all your water 'fun' and fun!


  19. All I know is that you look amazing in that vest, Corbin. The colors really suit you. Oh, and I hope the water warms up for you real soon.

  20. I think you're loving that water Corbin! I bet mom and dad really have to coax you to go after your toys! BOL!

    Looking mighty cool on the boat!

  21. omg PEEMAIL! i love that! i should leave my humans some of that during my next bath! but i agree with you...whats the point in baths? Do humans expect us to actually STAY clean? *giggles* looks like you had tons of fun!

  22. Tee Hee way to toss that toy for Dad there Corbin :D

    Love your floaty :D Does it have an anchor?

    Have fun at the lake this weekend dude!

    Waggin at ya,

  23. Oh, man, Corbin - seeing ALL that water makes us want to go for a swim! Most of us LOVE swimming! But our little pond doesn't have near that much water. Can we come swim in your lake???
