And then I bought a pool off kijiji for $50!! Steal of a deal. And it's huge. Well, it's supposed to be. The actual pool is supposed to be 16 feet in diameter, and 40 inches deep. Because of a little slope in my yard, and my less than perfect pool filling abilities it is smaller than that. Still about 16 feet wide on one direction and maybe 20 the other way. Oh, and about 20 inches deep. Deep enough for corgis to swim (and a reluctant Pyr Shep), but not for Brit. Which is sucky- but it's still good resistance so we walk in it at least.
The dogs have been mostly enjoying the pool- Wicca loves to swim and fetch and is very excited to show anyone who comes over her super pool skills. Brit will jump in at any request. The other three not so much. lol. Pixel acts like she is going to drown, Boone whines and turns frantic, and Vito sinks. (well the front half anyway. His butt floats oddly enough..lol) It's a work in progress to get them to like it. But it's still fun. And it's been really hot so nice to have for me too!!!
When it was just filling everyone was curious- even those who don't like it at this point...
|You want me to go where>??|
|The Three bad girls..|
|Pixel thinks this amount of water is perfect!!!|
|Like a big drinking bowl...|
|Wicca fell off the board...|
|Vito likes to surf, but not the getting wet part...|
|Boone is the one who hates the pool the most. It takes much convinving that he isn't going to drown..|
|My dad made me stairs for an easy exit. All the dogs are a pro at this part. :)|
PS. Last day of work today for two whole weeks!!! Makes me so FREAKING happy. Not that I don't love my job. But a break is a very good thing!
