It has been soooo hot here the past few weeks that I worry about Bailey being in the heat for too long. He loves to go for walks everyday so I thought I would get him a little baby pool to cool him off after his walks. I just filled the bottom of the pool, not too deep, and I stepped into the pool to see what his reaction would be. He just watched me walk around for a few minutes and I knew he wasn't sure about this swimming pool thing.
So... I went into the house and brought out one of his balls and took it back into the pool with me. That did it, he couldn't stand it because I had his ball in the pool so... he jumped right in!
We played fetch in the pool for a long time and he had a blast!! Now, everytime he goes out in the yard, he walks over to the pool and just looks in it...then looks back at me. It is so cute because it seems as if he is asking me if he can get in!
We played in the pool 2 times yesterday and I am pretty sure this will become a regular "game" for us to play during the summer months!
