Last year my humans bought me a small kiddie pool and tried to surprise me with it. It had the head of a dog on it, because I guess puppies could also use it. When I saw it I was so scared I barked at it and jumped over a 6 ft. fence! I was brought back and placed in the pool but I didn’t like it. I wouldn’t even just put my feet in the water. When my daddies went swimming I liked to watch and bark. I love to bite the water when it comes out a garden hose and I wanted to bite the splashes!
Finally daddy Kevin carried me into the water with him. I even started swimming without anyone teaching me! After a while I learned to climb on the ladder and jump in and then when I wanted to get out I learned to go to the ladder and climb out! I love playing catch in the pool and biting the splashes that people make. I’m not supposed to go in alone, but a couple of times I jumped in by myself.
All the time I am in the pool Cato is on the edge barking constantly because he wants to play, but he is too afraid to go in. Kevin even took him in the water and he could swim too, but he really doesn’t like to go in the pool. The pool is closed for the year, so I will have to wait until next year. So sad.
