    Why take the chance? Wait, be patient. Too cold and too little. Just a baby and there is plenty of time for water intro in the right atmosphere.

    sloooow down. Take the above advice, it is good!

    Where are you located? I have plenty of water and a sham whow to dry the little fella off with but lake temps are 51 where I wade fish so I would not suggest prolonged exposure.

    For real's? I would not "throw" a dog in the water at any age.

    PLEASE take the advice from the previous posts

    There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace…........If one has cut, split, hauled, and piled his own good oak, and let his mind work the while, he will remember much about where the heat comes from, and with a wealth of detail denied to those who spend the weekend in town astride a radiator.

    Thanks everyone! I'll give him some time and wait until March. Thanks for the advice... I'll be posting more questions in which I'm sure I'll need help.
