    We have 2 dogs, a 10 years old Springer Spaniel called Gibson, and a 7 month old Basset Hound called Lou (both are named after Detroit Tigers).

    We recently took them for a day out on the sand dunes by Lake Michigan....

    Lou was not impressed by either. He looked around a bit but spent much of the day sleeping under the umbrella.

    Gibson loved the beach and the water and spent the entire day covered in one or the other.

    Hmmm, I think it must be something to do with length of leg. Dogs with long legs are more likely to like water. Dogs with short legs tend not to.

    Lou looks like good husband material for Gracie! Gracie likes water but only for drinking. bathing and rain, and swimming? not so much.

    Saw the thread title and thought 'does your pet like water to drink'. Thought someone was going to share some beer-loving dog stories! :lol:

    my dog Hagen won't go in my parents pool unless you throw her in, when it is really hot she'll stand next to the pool waiting for someone to throw her in. If you get the hose out she will attack the water and she hates baths.
