We first started trying to drown Lumpy at 9 weeks. It is testament to his ability to hold his breath that he's still here today.
At first he was a bit unsure about the whole experience, then he seemed to merely tolerate it, and then went through a period of actively hating anything to do with the swimming pool.
Now, however, he can't get enough of the wet stuff, as this rather ridiculously grinny video shows.
Please try to ignore the zitty loon who's wrestling with him. Nice chin spot, Mrs Badger.
(For comparison purposes, this is the video taken in his first lesson... all together now - awwwwwwww)
