    Funnily any water being forced on holly is not appreciated, but any time it's her choice she loves it. Good luck getting moz interested, but if she is getting her paws wet and having a few mouthfuls it's probably all she needs!

    Does moz like getting hosed down?

    Holly learnt to swim by being carried as a 3 month old pup into the sea in salcombe and basically thrown in, which probably isn't the best start to a swimming career but it hasn't stopped her...

    @hats must take more photos of dog, don't have any of her swimming, the first time it happened we were too shocked/laughing to much to get a camera involved!

    it's getting her to stop that's the trick! she only goes paw deep unless I give her some encouragement to swim which is handy as it means she doesn't get too far behind if she does detour into the water, she only really likes swimming to retrieve things, but a stone is enough as she'll go out and have a look for it!

    She HATES it if I splash her with water!

    the first time I went open water swimming she was off the lead and she followed me in, I'd swum 50m before I realised she was behind me with my wife standing on the bank not quite sure wheter it was funny or worrying!! when I turned round to say hello she freaked out and powered back to the bank and now will just splash about in the shallow water if she comes swimming with me!

    I'm doing this tomorrow, my first ever swim race, only for lols as its run by a friend and is about 2k from my front door..

    should be nice and cool, the lakes round here are now too hot to swim in a wetsuit in, which is lovely but slow!

    I love running in the summer, this may be because I always run next to water so my dog doesn't overheat which keeps things cooler and if it all gets too much I can just jump in....!

    I do wish I had some means of carrying water that didn't involve carrying or wearing anything, my current tactic is just run for an hour or less and hydrate before and after....

    I got wiggle to price match - should be here by next week!

    I think others will thank me too, at least the castelli is only see through on the back/top half unlike my current skinsuit which my wife assures me its possible to identify a scar I have on my left cheek its so see through.... :/

    you'll find an excuse, there's never any pre deciding needed in my experience.

    Last nights was "different skin suit" which meant I was slipping about on the saddle so was 20 watts down.....

    I have a few backup ones as well, like the car that stopped me and the hot weather, but i try to stick to one per ride....
