Newfoundland Enzo towing a dinghy


Our Newfy club timed the season's first water rescue training day perfectly. November 25 was a beautiful warm Sunday in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Enzo got straight into swimming out and bringing Michelle and the dinghy to the safety of the shore.

O for Oarsome!

On his second run Enzo couldn't wait for Michelle to throw a rope, he just grabbed the dinghy by an oar and swam it to shore...

Hi there! can I come aboard?



"Hi there, can I come aboard?"

Soon it became evident that Newfoundland Enzo was keen to be on the boat...


Hmmm. This looks like a good place to sit...




While Newfoundland Enzo was most comfortable clambering around on board, Michelle found it a little difficult to row...

How about a cuddle Mum?



...Especially when Enzo the Newfy wanted cuddles.

"see ya!"...or is thast Sea ya?"

Time to leave the boat...or disembark (to use a more doggy term).

Splash down...

And back to shore we go...

Not content with just taking the dinghy to shore, Enzo the Newf thought it might be a good idea to take the dinghy up the bank to show Henry, who was waiting in the car.

This was all pretty hard work. Time for a break...

...So we have enough energy to go home for a rest.

Rested and ready for the 2012 Christmas parade in Rangiora, Henry & Enzo got into the spirit of the day along with several of their Newfy friends. Once again the Newfoundlands were a hit with the crowd.

Henry was on carting duty while Enzo (not in shot) mingled with the crowd.
