We decided to get a baby pool so we could "chill" in the backyard with Dora. :) It was definitely an adventure getting it home from Walmart tied to the top of our Accord w/ the wind gusting, but luckily we made it home in one piece. Dora has been mostly enjoying this way:

Tries to climb in

Gets stuck and can't get back out

Climbs on top of me or my husband to stay dry

Uses us as launching pad to jump out

Stands right by pool and shakes water all over us

Runs around and gets grass all over herself

Repeat

Last time the only part of her that stayed dry was the back of her neck. :)





She gets braver every time, so I'm hoping eventually she'll enjoy SWIMMING instead of island-hopping from me to hubby. B)

However, it was a booger trying to take care of all the mats she gets from swimming with her vest on. Luckily she had a grooming appointment today and we agreed that she needed a shorter 'do. It was also a different groomer, as Dora's old groomer left for another job, BUT the new person did great too! Whew. :thumbsup:

Mom...I feel SOOOO much cooler now! And the short cut really shows off my figure! :happy:





Thanks for looking. :)

I love the new hair cut :aktion033:. You'll love it not matting so much. I know I love how much freedom MiLey's hair cut gives her.
The kiddie pool looks like a nice way to stay cool in the summer.

Dora is adorable in her vest in the pool! The last few times I was at Wal-Mart I was looking at one of the small pools for the girls but didn't get it - you may have changed my mind. I've been wanting a real pool forever but hubby always said no, hmm, maybe if we start off small.....

I've been contemplating getting Izzy a baby pool, but probably not one as nice as yours. Truth be told my black and tan BG would probably really appreciate it. He gets so hot so fast when the sun is out.

I love Dora's new do, maybe she'll like swimming more now that she has more of a wash and wear haircut. Everybody dog paddle! woo hoo!

April - Dora looks terrific in her haircut -- her hair just looks so soft and fluffy.:wub::wub: And what a great idea to get a kiddie pool. :chili: Tell hubby it's either a tanning salon or that. At least he's next to a white dog:)I think he looks great and so happy to have Dora climbing on him.
