I mentioned that I bought a kiddie pool for the boys…
Well, first of all, the small box said it was 8 feet.
I thought that meant circumference. It meant diameter. The thing is huge.
So I set it up last night to see how they would do. I ended up having to climb in and use treats to entice them.
Once Cooper realized Emmett was getting all the treats, he jumped in, too.
Then we tossed some toys in, and the two of them proceeded to jump in and out, shake off, run around, and wrestle while I stood there and got soaked!
Overall, Emmett and Cooper had a lot of fun and got some great exercise.
Meanwhile, Lucas and Cady… hid.
Then tried to escape into the house.
When we were finished for the day, we got everyone dried off, but we didn’t get Cooper’s favorite ball out of the pool…
Do your dogs like to swim? Are they ready to try new things like Emmett and Cooper? Or prone to hiding like Lucas and Cady?
Also, a quick note unrelated to this post: It was pointed out to me recently that my Subscribe button has never worked. Rats! Anyway, (after a very frustrating late night wherein I realized I have less technical knowledge than I had previously thought…) it’s fixed now!
