It's not real big or anything, but it's plenty big enough to splash around in after a walk/trot with Mom! AND there's plenty of room for everyone! Look:
"Oh, yeah. This is totally cool!"
See? It's like ... it's like having a BOX, with this cool water in it! Yeah! A box that Cam will actually ---
"Get back IN here, Cam!"
OK. Note to self: Don't refer to the pool as a "box" around Cammie.
|"Hey. Where'd everybody go? I'm just kidding. It's not a box."|
Mom asked if we'd like some of our toys in the pool ...
|"Toys would be a good idea."|
"Nah. My favorite toy just jumped back in! Ha roo roo roo!!!"
She put my KONG Traxx and my cool KONG thing that looks like a spaceship in the water.
|"The tire sank but the spaceship is floating!"|
"That's because it's a spaceship!!!"
She had a good point there.
Apparently, Mom gets hot on our walks, too. I tried cooling her off by standing right beside her and doing the shakey-shakey-shake. She thanked me, so I'm sure she appreciated it. It wasn't enough, though, so she joined us in our pool for a while!
Mom loves the look on Cammie's face in that shot. She wanted me to point that out to everyone.
Anyway, Mom empties our pool after each use, so we don't attract mosquitoes and other undesirable things. She uses that water to water her plants. We also like to move it around on the deck, so we can have sun or shade - depending on how hot it is! Over here on this side, there's more sun and lots of room to run around!
I like for Mom to throw my tire in the pool, then I rescue it, then give it to her - then we start it all over again. It's sort of like Fetch, only with water.
|"I've got it, Mom!"|
While Mom is busy throwing the toy, Cammie stands by as my lifeguard!
|"How 'bout more throwing and less pictures?"|
"Can I have a whistle to wear around my neck?"
Unlike many pools, we have no rules against running! In fact, it's encouraged!
Cammie doesn't like to play the water version of Fetch, but she did want a turn in the pool (something about "adult swim time"?), so I got out and served as her lifeguard, like she did for me!
|"No worries, Mom; I'm on it!"|
"You should make Maggie wear those sunglasses out here!"
When I thought Cam had enough time in the pool ...
"Ev'rybody out of the pool!!!"
Oh. Yeah. Well, I thought she was drowning or something since she didn't get out right away; I felt it was my duty as lifeguard to pull her to safety.
|"Sigh. Do all of you see what I have to put up with around here?"|
"Maybe if I grab a back leg ..."
Yeah, Cam acts all grown up and stuff, but she likes splashing around every bit as much as I do!
Who wants to come to our pool party!?! You're all welcome to join us! (We just have to dry off before we're allowed back in the house!)
OMC - this would put a whole new spin on the crazed river otter game.....you could get everyone wet!! :)ReplyDelete
When we lived in California, we got a similar sized pool for our Sadie and Reggie-but they never used it-just our grands. Hunter would not like the water I don't think.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your fun with us!!!!

We used to have one of those when Thunder Dunder was around. He would get in and wet his feet, but no one was interested. Mom finally tossed it to the curbside. Maybe we need to have her find another one. You all make it look like fun. In fact, Lightning almost thought that was Ciara in the pool:)ReplyDelete
