Benjamin has an odd fascination with the pool skimmer. Whenever I take off the cover to clear out the skimmer, Benjamin always comes over and peers inside like it is some special rabbit hole and there is some magical wonderland hidden below.

Swim Camp 2011 - Luna

Here is little Luna's Swim Camp clip. She is by far the best swimmer out of the 3 pugs, but she is very nervous in the water. No under water clips of her swimming. If you go under water to get video of her swimming she doesn't know where to swim to!

Benjamin and Luna are very happy that their obligatory, yearly dip in the pool is complete. Now they don't have to worry about having to get in the pool until next year. I'm sure that makes Henry happy because that means more pool time for him.

Swim Camp 2011 - Benjamin

Here is Benjamin's Swim Camp clip. Note the lack of enthusiasm on his part. He is all about swimming to the step hopping out of the pool and then running through the doggie door and back into the house so he can drip all over the rug. Paybacks wink

Swim Camp 2011 - Henry

We held a mini swim camp last week and here is a short clip of Henry in action.

Henry really is the only pug that enjoys swim camp. Luna barely tolerates it and Benjamin absolutely hates it. Its a shame because it is such good exercise for the pugs when it it too hot for them to walk.

The Setup

Luna and Henry

We held a mini swim camp over the weekend and as I was setting things up I started to feel like the pugs were small children.


First we have to dig out their life vests so they will be safe.

Pool toys

Then we have to get out all their pool toys so they have something to play with. And once all the pool toys are out, we have to watch them all fight for the same toy. I wouldn't know from first hand experience, but sounds like kids to me wink

Swim camp pics to hopefully follow later in the week!

Tiny Swimmer


Luna isn't very fond of swimming, however, she is a wonderful swimmer. She is by far the best swimmer of the three. Not only can the girl swim, but she is quick! Swimming looks like it comes so natural to her, but yet it isn't really her thing.

The Jump


Swimming for Henry means rescuing all of his toys from the pool. He has a set of water toys that float and are easy fro him to grab out of the water. After he gets his vest on, we throw all his water toys into the pool at the opposite end of the steps.

When he is ready, he goes to the first step in the pool and then jumps into the water to swim and rescue one of his toys. After he snags one of his toys from the water he swims back to the step with it and takes it out of the pool.









He will then mill around a bit on the pool deck, taking a break from his lap, and when he is ready he will jump back in the pool and rescue another one of his toys.

While it is fun to watch Henry, from the pictures you get a great idea of how Benjamin and Luna feel about Henry jumping into the pool. It makes them a nervous wreck! Plus, Benny always grabs the freshly rescued toy from Henry when he brings it out of the pool.
