Last weekend or on Easter Sunday to be exact, I went to Lake Bala in North Wales for a day trip with a friend of mine. We arrived there at about 1 pm. Apparently there was Newfoundland Dog Event taking place when we got there.
The situation of Newfoundland Dog Event
The dogs are giant and it was my first time to see that kind of dogs.
Isn't he/she giant?
Have a break
They were trained for lifesaving. The dog had to swim to his or her owner and the staff trainer who were waiting for in a lifeboat. When the dog reached the lifeboat then he or she would be given a rope that been tied to the boat, and with that rope the dog had to drag the lifeboat to the coast.
Are you ready?!
The dog started swimming to the lifeboat
"Keep going, buddy! Keep swimming!"
"Come on, buddy! You are nearly there!"
"Good boy/girl! Now take the rope!"
"OK, buddy! Now it's time to go back to the coast!"
Another ones were having a break or perhaps waiting for their turn
The two buddies: the owner and the dog
This dog refused to swim into the water. It took ages to persuade him/her.
Finally he/she started swimming after back and forth into the water.
As the dog swam by, the owner cheered him/her on.
"Yes, come on, buddy! You're nearly here!"
"Oh, noooo!" said the owner. The dog made a U-turn before reached the lifeboat and swam away.
They were barking for whatever reasons
A dog with his/her life-saving jacket
It was an interesting event to watch.
