is it mean to put your dog over water?
Back in 2007, I posted this short video of Memphis on YouTube:
Every now and then I get a message saying how mean and cruel we were to do this to our puppy. I’m always shocked, since she does the exact same thing when we hold her up to the shower to rinse her off from her weekly bath as well. Is that cruel too?
We still giggle every time she does it… I swear she’d do it over a puddle as well. But I swear we’re not being mean at all… really! We just thought this was too cute to not share with the video world.
Awww, I think it’s cute! Not mean! :)
I don’t think its mean at all. Its not like he is stressed out or anything… he’s just paddling away :) For what its worth, our Izzy does the same thing when we hold her out over the dock at the lake.
I don’t think that’s mean at all. Our boston does it too. Even over the bathtub. :)

Aww, hehe, another vote for CUTE!
I think it’s hilariously cute! It makes me wonder what’s going through his mind, like “man the water’s warm today, I can hardly feel it!” or “must work on my doggie paddle, sometimes I feel like I’m hardly moving!” :D
Not mean, just cute!
I was expecting to see him yelping and desperately trying to get away after I read people were so upset, but it was just the opposite! I found the video very cute and funny!
thanks for sharing!
That’s an insane comment to get (that it’s mean). Memphis clearly isn’t distressed or upset or anything of that nature. It’s hilarious that she’s already getting ready to hit the water and SWIM! Super cute!!
Ugh, sometimes I really hate youtube commenters. It’s totally cute and not mean, ignore those guys.
Haha its cute and funny! Definitely not mean
I thought she’s be upset or something for people to think it’s cruel. She seems FINE. So yeah, it’s cute. Not cruel.
Awww she’s adorable!
i have never seen that before! nature is amazing giving her that instinct to swim! i thought that was great and will show it to my kids! you’re not mean and we know it!!!!
