First, my human put me on the steps. I did not like this one bit, swim vest and all!
As you can tell from the photo above, I was looking for a way to make a quick exit. Unfortunately, I forgot that my swim vest had handles which made it very easy for my humans and their ape-like thumbs to grab hold of me and prevent an escape. Touché. Then it happened. My human PUT MY WHOLE BODY INTO THE WATER. My. Whole. Body.
In case you couldn't tell from the shot above, my eyes were bulging out of my head. Here's a close up for your viewing pleasure:
I was not happy. And neither was my human after I dug my claws into his arms. But after my human held me in the water for a little while, I calmed down. I realized that the pool wasn't so terrible, and it actually felt good on such a hot day. Once my limbs were no longer stiff with fear, I played in the water for a little bit with my human. I even tried the noodle!
Let's not kid ourselves, I am no Olympic swimmer yet, but I am making progress. Maybe teaching me how to swim is not such a bad idea (don't tell my humans I said that). Were you ever afraid to try something new?
