Some dogs, like retrievers and spaniels, are born with a love of water. Others, regardless of what they were bred to do, are just as excited to dip their paws in a refreshing lake or pond when given the chance. This week, the dog stars of Instagram took to the ocean, the pool, and even the bathtub to get their water fix. See how a few of our favorite canine friends got wet and wild!
The Smith family and their Bernese Mountain Dogs spent tons of time at the beach this week, as they often do. These beautiful and fun-loving dogs took a romp on both the sand and in the water.
Look at them go!
Annie looked graceful and downright adorable as she strolled out of the ocean.
As for Bess, she was all smiles, despite the overcast day.
While we’re not sure what type of water fun Cricket the Golden Retriever had this week, he definitely got some … just look at his fur!
You can never have too many tennis balls, right, Cricket?
Meanwhile, our Samoyed pal Rocky decided he’d rather pose by a pond instead of dive into it. With all that beautiful fur, we understand why he’d be hesitant.
Happy #tongueouttuesday everyone! This pond near us is full of ducks but they’re not all they’re quacked up to be 😂🦆🐶🐾🐕🤦🏼♂️ #tongueout #pittmeadows #youquackmeup #samoyed #summerhillsamoyed #dogstagram #dailybarker #puppy #dogsofinstagram #doglover #cutest #puppylove #mydogiscutest #instapets #instadogs #dog_features #whitedog #teamsamoyed #petsofinstagram #ilovemydog #instapuppies #instasamoyed #instapup #vancitydogs #petsgram #dogoftheday #cutepuppy #love #petstagram
How did Choco and Nala feel about going to the beach this week? Well, just take a look at this picture. They set off running, dove in head first, and never looked back. These Labs are water dogs through and through.
After a dip in the ocean, it was time to dry off. Nala didn’t mind cuddling up in a towel.
As for the German Shepherd Dogs of @the_island_dog, almost every day is a beach day. We love the way Marla smushes her face in the water!
Water babies 😊😊 Marla loves to smush her face in like that 😂 Sooo…. tonight we are flying to Europe to visit family for the first time in nearly 2 years! It will he the longest I've been away from the dogs thoigh we have 2 great people taking care of them for us…their best friends! I will do my best to keep you updated on the dogs and our travels. We will be in England, Switzerland and possibly France 🤗 #theislanddog
Unfortunately for Winston, Finley, and Theodore, their fun-filled day rolling around in poop did not end the way they intended. The three Dachshunds spent some time in the bath. Just look at those faces!
Meanwhile, Wally the Pembroke Welsh Corgi may not have gotten in the water, but he sprawled out on a blanket to work on his “base tan.”
