Puppies in awe of their grandmother's wading abilities.
The puppies look up to the adult digs and learn a great deal from them. Here, Maple wades into one of the pools we recently made as part of a system that connects several springs together making a steam through the barnyard. Flock guardian breeds like Maple and her grandpuppes don't usually like swimming but they do like to wade in up to their chest sometimes just to cool off and get a deep drink. They seem to not want to get their tails wet especially.
These little nine-week old pups from a litter by Maple's daughter Wynter are watching their grandma dog with wonder and gather around her as she makes her way out of the pool.
