To all the shy, socially awkward people — you’re not alone. Beya, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, is right there with you. She can relate to all the times you were invited to a friend’s party where you didn’t know many people (maybe only the friend who invited you) and so you stand in the corner trying to decide if you should just walk up to a stranger and start talking (palms sweaty, throat closing) or if you should just hang out where you are and wait for someone to approach you.
Beya is clearly of the latter group.
After getting invited to a pool party at the Happy Tails Resort in Norfolk, Virginia, Beya joins the other dogs in the pool. And that’s about as far as she gets. The day care and boarding home for dogs captured her refusal to swim in a video staff posted to Facebook.
The video shows a dog jump in the pool beside her, while she stands still, looking at the camera.
Other dogs swim around her. She stands still.
Dogs play with balls and other floatable toys all around her. She stands still.
Another dog joins her in looking at the camera. She stands still.
She does not move the entire time.
The Non Swimming Dog made an appearance today!

Maybe at the next party she’ll swim and a different dog will stand still.
