How do your dogs feel about water?

Levi Bobs for Treats
Levi is the most water-averse dog. He won't even step in puddles or go out when it is raining. But, one day I was walking Neptune and he actually laid down in a very shallow creek. So, with the temperature rising, I thought I'd get Neptune a little pool to play in this summer. PetSmart sells these plastic pools for about $9. After a hot walk, I filled it up for Neptune, but he wanted nothing to do with it. I tried to lure him with treats, but he was not interested. Just when I thought the pool would only be used to cool my swollen feet all summer, we tried Levi out. Levi apparently loves food more than he hates water because I got him to step into the pool. And when we dropped treats into the water, he would actually stick his nose underwater and blow bubbles. It was totally worth the price of the pool to see that. I took some video of him doing it yesterday. And pardon our dirty patio-we just had our gutters cleaned and then had a series of crazy storms, and we hadn't had the chance to clean yet.
