A Swim Video of Bubba

This is just a quick 40 second video that I took today and it shows what swim-therapy is like for Bubba. He is now on his 12th session and while it's not very exciting it gives you an idea--Pretty much all I do is lead Bubba around the pool and he quietly swims with the ball in his mouth. It's quite boring I'm afraid, but of course very good for him and I think he likes it! I'm really noticing a difference as he is picking up the pace a little bit when he walks and has even managed a little bit of a gallop--A good sign!


  1. Woof! Woof! This is Bubba's 3rd swim. Hope its helping with his arthritis. It's just hard to understand that some dogs don't enjoy water n swimming ... in Bubba's case his a retriever. I imagine that every retriever enjoys water n swimming. I did he is getting comfortable n holding that ball seems to help him. Lots of Golden Woofs, to everyone especially SAM. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. Hey Kim,

    Not boring-- encouraging. He does look completely relaxed, and not in pain. Glad he is taking to it, and that it is helping him.

  3. Bubba swims better than I do. I'm glad it's helping.

  4. Yay Bubba!! Swim on my friend :)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

  5. He looks like he likes it, and it is so cute that he carries his ball in his mouth with him. I'm glad that you think that it is doing him some good. You know, I would be willing to bet that the one on one with you is also doing him some good. This is his special time with you.

  6. You go Bubba, that swimming will help you so much.
    Kim, thanks for sharing that video, it is just wonderful to see these guys be treated with love and such wonderful care.

  11. Oh Kim that is amazing, he seems to really like it and I was moved to tears when I saw how he looks to you for approval. He has such a look of love in his eyes when he glances at you!
    What a wonderful way to start the week for me to see his sweet face with that ball in his mouth.
    My sweet Lili loved her tennis balls and I still have a few of them lying around on the floor. I will have them with me always.
    Have a great week Bubba and Kim!
