The Dalmatian I had growing up had his own pool too! He LOVED that darn thing! And Yes, his pads would get soft and wrinkely too!Josie's Proud Mom said:Funny as it sounds, yes they can. My husbands and my first dog would not stay out of water. Always either in the bay or in her swimming pool (yes I said her swimming pool). Her pads on her paws would get wrinkled and kind of soft which was not always good because when she would run on gravel or hard dirt she would tear her pads. She loved swimming and trying to catch horseshoe crabs, funny as heck to watch her!
Great topic Steve! :thumbright: One of those inquiring-minds-want- to- know things!
