Miss Eva goes swimming

Greetings everybody!
It was a hot and sunny day today and my Uncle Mika had just gone for his swim. I was getting a little jealous because the humans never seem to notice me! I want to swim too but they always tell me that my fur takes way too long to dry! Who cares?
Well, today, with my cute looks, I finally got them to let me swim! Woohoo!

Here I am with my life jacket ready to go!

I just love it when I can gracefully swim around and watch the world go by!

Taking a breather 

Giving my mommy the evil stare!

Oops! Gotta shake!
EEK! I'm all wet!
Oh don't look! This is embarrassing!
 Unfortunately, due to being a dog and not being able to type on the computer as such, I couldn't stop my humans from uploading a video of me swimming. Actually, to tell you the truth, the part of me swimming isn't exactly interesting but they just wanted you to see me do something really funny (or at least they think it is!)
Just keep a look out from around 30 seconds in the video. They want you to watch me do this funny shake.
Try not to laugh....

Oh, and don't worry about me when I look like I'm trying to get out of the tank. I'm not really. Just trying to stand. Unfortunately, the humans made the tank a bit fuller than they used to so the buoyancy kept me from standing.

When you're done laughing at me, here's a picture of me after the swim with my coat all fluffy again!

Sniff, I can't laugh at you: the video is not accessible from here...
Anyway, you are gorgeous in your bath suit.

Dexter said...

Boo hoo! The movie would not play, but I can imagine. I am glad you wore that floaty thing.

The video played for me and it was FABULOUS! My husband and I were just rolling with the "shake" of my favorite photos was the "Evil Stare".....I was just literally "laughing out loud!!"

That new camera is enabling you to get even more fabulous shots than your original one did (if that is possible because they were insanely wonderful before)

Thank you for the Monday laugh! Kisses to beautiful, fluffy furred Eva!!

Sara said...

Eva,I think you may be the only dog on the planet who can shake underwater! You are very talented indeed.

The photos are precious.

Eva is a very graceful swimmer. I wish I swam as well as Eva!

Chris and Ricky said...

Sorry, Eva, but I had to laugh! How can you shake when you are IN the water? Very cute! You are an excellent swimmer. I wish I could swim like you do.

The photos of you are some of the best ever! Your mom should publish a book of your photos!

Emma Rose said...

We loved it too. It takes real skill to shake in the water :)
Your pictures are beautiful!

Anna the GSD said...

That's a nice swimmin vest! But you know you need pink!! Glad they let you cool off, now you just need a cabana boy!

Patti and DeBoys said...

Yes, Eva, we did have to laugh when you almost fell backwards with the fantastic 'SHAKE'! :) Reminded us of the song, "Splish, Splash I'm tak'n a bath..."

Mom, was wondering if the new camera also recorded your video?

Kathy Mocharnuk said...

She really likes swimming doesnt she? I want a big bucket like that for swimming it is so perfect!

Sagira said...

Wow Eva you are a wonderful swimmer. The shake was too cute, you about fell over backwards. haha

katie, Maizey and Magnus said...

I love the pictures! And your swimming tank is awesome! I think I may look into getting one for Maizey in the spring when the snow stops. Magnus doesn't seem too keen on water, but our little girl loves to swim. You sure are getting fluffy Eva, a real grown up girl. You're laura would be proud of you!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

We're not laughing AT you. We're laughing WITH you. That video put a smile on all our faces. You're a pawsome little swimmer and just so cute, too.

lotsa licks, Lola

houndstooth said...

You're a pretty good swimmer, Eva! I swear I wasn't laughing at the shake -- it was more at how your hair stuck up at the back of your head after the shake that gave me the giggles!


verobirdie said...

yeah, I can watch the video now! You are a very good swimmer and seem to enjoy your bath a lot.
Your shake in water is very ... girly

Bella and Ollie said...

You look so cute!
My humans went 'awwwww' when they saw your beautiful photos.

Love, Bella & Ollie.

Peggy Frezon said...

You're a good swimmer Eva. Did you get dizzy?

MadameMoiselle said...

Tell mommy and daddy it's time for a real pool in the house! And tell them 80% of the time, your life is about grooming.. :P

Love those pictures.. and I hope Mika is feeling better. Do keep us posted.


Dawn said...

You are an excellent swimmer Eva! And who knew a dog could shake while under water!? :) I did laugh, just a little, but not AT you...WITH you!

Dexter said...

I got the movie to work. Gosh, that swimming pool made me kind of dizzy. Don't forget to go in both directions or you will get lopsided.
