My Wading Pool

The summer is getting really hot. So Mummy had some kind of brainwave to get me a wading pool and Daddy found a nice plastic one that wasn't too high.



First, I got put in the wading pool....then.......Uh, what's with the pail?





Here's my face of please-let-me-out-of-here!



Oh great. Round 2! Its cold water...actually reminds me of the temperature of the Pacific Ocean.



Now Daddy is attempting to trick me to enter the pool again....



For food? Why not right? =D



Mummy tried to train me too. Little do they know that I'm actually training THEM to give me treats. Heh heh....



I'm in! Now feed me!



This kept going on until....Daddy got clumsy with the treats.



I got it, don't worry, I got it....



And once I learnt that, I love poking my face in the water for treats! Ready, Aim, hold my breath and ...



Dunk in while breathing out!



Nibble nibble... =D



Are there anymore treats? I'll do anything for treats...=)



Well, almost anything...give a dog a break, its COLD WATER!



Until the next report, here's my stink eye to Daddy at the beginning of the cold water treatment. =) But to be truthful, it was fun once I started running around after that. Hope for more fun cos the days sure are getting HOT!

I got Sadie one of these from PetSmart, and she isn't such a fan of it haha. I put her in it, and she just jumps right out!! It's been so hot lately...wish she'd get used to it.

I love those pictures! We got one for Whiskey and it takes some getting use to but now she has the hang of it. When daddy jumps in the pool, she will bark and then jump in her pool. Its great.

We LOVE our pool, too! Grammy never put us into it because she didn't want to scare us, but she got us used to chasing the hose by not putting it on us, just near us, and having it "run away" while we chased it. We ended up chasing it into the pool and out a few times, and now we know the pool isn't a bath and we play in it a lot when it gets hot!
