When I first saw this post, I was reminded of my old dog Bella. Bella was a wonderful dog with many things that made her special- her love of music, her playful side, etc. But one thing Bella hated was water. The first time we took her to the beach, Bella cried as we were having a fantastic time in the water. She was too scared to go in. Only when another dog pushed her into the water, did her cries subside. She liked the other dog, saw how he enjoyed the water, and so she got into the lake. But she did not like water. She hated getting wet.
