We are at the Sekeping Serendah jungle retreat for a weekend getaway.
Hmmm, finding our shed can be a challenge over here...
... but I think I found it, come follow me.
What! This is not the one?
No worries, my big sharpei nose will lead us there.
There are all kind of creepy crawlies in the jungle. This is a giant leaf cutter ant, which can grow up to two inches long and packed a nasty bite.
Finally, we manage to find our shed...
... and this is where we'll call it a night when the sun sets.
This little fat leech is making its escape after a blood sucking spree.
Speaking of food, I'm hungry...
... hellooo, can we have something to eat?
Time to start the fire and grill the sausages...
... with me keeping a close watch on the cooking process, making sure it's done correctly.
After a yummilicious barbecue meal, we hit the sack for the night.
Amidst the chorus of nocturnal insects chiming in the night air outside, I had a good
slobber slumber on the bed.
The next morning, I woke up very early but have to wait for the sleepy heads...
... before I could go for my favorite fun activity...
... where else but the swimming pool.
Today, my furiends, I'm going to be your Canine Swimming Instructor (CSI) and I'll share with you some canine swimming tips from a dog's perspective, not the typical instructions by the hoomans for the hoomans one find aplenty everywhere. Who's swimming anyways, us or the hoomans, duh!
Coming from a sharpei, I may be your least likely candidate for CSI. But fear not, this is easy peasy, just follow my simple instructions and furryone can become Michael Fido Phelps in no time.
First of all, every dog can float in water (unless you had stones for breakfast)... just relax and make sure you don't panic in the water... think of it as a big water bowl.
Second, always keep your snooter above the water level by tilting your head upward... and breath normally while swimming.
Thirdly, just dog paddle casually with your legs in diagonal pairs making sure you place the front paws a little farther out in front.
Next, remember never to open your mouth to pant while swimming... always keep your mouth close to avoid choking on water.
When necessary, use your tail to fish-wag for extra control and propulsion in the water.
And lastly, always keep your focus straight and do not constantly look away as you may get confuse and panic will set in.
And that's about all, folks... hope you enjoy the simple tips from your friendly neighborhood CSI and have fun on your next encounter with the water bowl.
