Both Hondo (GSD) and Lonestar (Lacy) love the water. However, when Hondo swims he tends to gulp water. Lonestar doesn't. I would be more inclined to allow Lonestar in icy water before I'd allow Hondo, because of this.
Hondo Von Dopplet L Bauernhof "Hondo"- GSD
Lilie's Tug McGraw "Tug" - Golden Retriever
