Hi everyone, I don't post often but I do pop in and read. I wanted to post this as a warning about fish ponds, I'm sharing this with others whom have small dogs. It's very sad.
Sidney, a member on Yorkiefun forum that I belong to lost her beloved Pepper. He drowned in her fish pond. I got permission to crosspost this so that others can be aware. I think we recently talked about this danger on Yorkietalk. It's so sad, it just breaks my heart. Please take the time to also read the beautiful tribute done by another forum member. It's the rainbow bridge poem with Pepper's sweet picture. She did a wonderful job in creating it and it puts a face to this terrible tragedy. Rest well little Pepper. You Mommy loved you.

Sidney's post informing us of her terrible loss...
“My little Pepper drowned this morning in my fish pond. I'm in so much shock. I'll tell more later. I'm having a hard time.”

The following is a beautiful memorial to Pepper created by another forum member

“In loving memory of Pepper”

Thats weird, I wish the links would work. If you have a chance, you can go to yorkiefun.com to read it. It's just something worth cautioning everyone about. We had just had a thread on the risk on another yorkie forum last week. It must be a fairly common problem and happens more than you would think. I knew a lady years ago whose little yorkie drowned in their swimming pool. Also those of you whom are old members of MO may know that Jay lost 2 malts in his swimming pool years ago. Just keep an eye on your little ones..it's just not worth risking.

Thanks so much for the warning I to thought it was just natural for dogs to know how to swim... do you teach them if so how? I have a pool and stress enough over my kids. Also my inlaws live on a lake ... like the beach is thier yard...so i need to buy a life jacket for tmy puppy?
