I take Tessa around the lake by my house about two or three times a week -
sometimes alone and sometimes with Truffles and Spencer. It took Tessa about two months to go near the lake. Then a month to put her feet in. Today - another month later - she actually dove in and swam out about 5 feet - checking out the ducks - and swam back!!!
That's my Tessa! In HER time!!!
