Our black lab, Rayla, is an amazing dog. When she was 6 months old, I took her swimming for the first time and didn't know what to expect. In fact, I thought I would have to go into the water with her so she wasn't scared. She sure surprised me when she leaped into the lake and began paddling like she's been doing it her whole life. It must be in her DNA, because she's so efficient and quick (and looks good while doing it).
Here are some photos from the past week during her play-date with Lewie.
