Max, the Great Dane, wants to spend a great day outside swimming in an outdoor pool. His mother, on the other hand, is plainly not having it. She hasn’t given her approval for his swim time. Max may be heard whining a little bit at first, but as time goes on, his small whines evolve into a loud session of whimpering, one acting role worthy of an award. It’s like a youngster begging for sweets or junk food when all he’s permitted to eat is the fresh vegetables in front of him.
To top it all off, Max is deaf, so it’s rather astounding how he can understand mom’s movements and lips. Normally, he and his mother get along great, but this time he plainly isn’t letting go, and his mother isn’t having it.
He even approaches the water and dips one of his paws in, as if to check the temperature.
Throughout this period,
he continues to whine in order to make his mother aware of how irritated and wounded he feels with her. Max will hopefully be reunited with his mother soon and be able to swim again. He does appear to enjoy water.
