    Default Daphne Swims (sort of)

    I have very mixed feelings about putting Daphne in the pool. I do want her to learn that the life vest will hold her up and how to get to the steps. On the other hand, I don't want us or her to become complacent. We're out by the pool for hours every single day all year round. We have heat and solar heat so pool saavy is a must. I really feel torn...

    It's making me very nervous. Son-in-law is going to be in charge of swim lessons.

    I think your absolutely correct... It's hard to figure if you want her terrified of the pool or know what to do with it. I love water so much and love when my dogs do too... Are you going to check her w/o jacket as well?

    I'm afraid...maybe later or I'll have daughter son-in-law and husband in pool with Daphne. And I'll go in the house and put a pillow over my head until they are finished.

    PS: I only like water from the deck of a crew ship.

    We spend a lot of time out by our pool too! I wish Bella was even just a little afraid if it. But no such luck...... she is NOT at all!
    Has fallen in three times already. Luckily I have been right by her to pull her out. She has come to the top paddling. I haven't given her much time to see if Shen can stay afloat yet.
    I am sure once we are in it she will be too. She has fallen in while I was trying to brush it and get leaves out.

    That great she has a life jacket and swimming. My mother refuses to get in the pool or any other body of water and I tried teaching her to swim when I was seven. They put me through infant swimming lessons as soon as they figured out I could open the door going out to the pool since my teenage siblings were in and out that door a lot and I tried going outside with them.

    Oh Daphne is a champion! Our Tank can swim, even without jacket, but wouldn't go in the water on his own, only with us. Pools can be tricky for bullies - my hubby used to have a bullie long ago in South Africa, perfect swimmer, but one night poor thing went out to go potty and something made him to get into the pool, may be chased an animal, and he drowned there! Despite being a perfect swimmer, he couldn't find in the darkness exit from the pool and drowned from exhaustion!

    My friend Edith is from France. She had a little Shitzu named Oscar. Oscar got old, became deaf and had poor eyesight. One night she called me and was hysterical. She was speaking 3/4 French and 1/4 English. They had found Oscar floating in the pool. To this day Edith is convinced that Oscar committed suicide because he didn't like being blind. She really believes that.
