The puppies were really excited when their family took them out to the refreshing poolside on a hot summer day. But the 4-week-old charmers were intimidated by the sight of the deep water. After hesitating for a while, one pup musters up some courage to step into the pool. Even so, the brave one freaks out and returns to the surface within seconds!

When Sharlie sees her petrified babies, she realizes she must intervene. She comes running to their rescue and quickly jumps into the pool. She then rounds up her litter and guides them as they learn swimming one by one. What a precious sight to witness!

We just love how one of the puppies confidently ventures into the deep end just moments after getting the swimming lesson. Thanks to Sharlie’s fantastic parenting skills, the puppies end up having a blast on their first ever pool adventure!
