    Default Hot weather and Cool pool

    So I went to 4 different stores and called 2 others before I FINALLY found a puppy pool and I get it home- all set up and TUBO Ellie won't do more than drink from it. I have lifted her up and put her in it and she just jumps out. Oh bully girl......

    Gio and Diva do the same thing! They don't want to even go near it when I bring it out!

    My dogs got into their pool only a couple of times. Now all I see is a stray cat stopping by to get a drink.

    Pan doesn't like his either. I truly believe that he thinks all water outside of his dish is evil and should be shunned and or he should hide from it. When we go on the boat and jump in, he gets all freaked out and runs from side to side barking like crazy, but don't you dare put him in... Lol it's too funny!

    Has it been hot when you've put her in it? Maybe she has figure it out for her self that it helps to cool her down??? At least thats what I think happened with Usko. It was a warm day and there was a few bullie girls around so you can imagine Uskos excitement. After we first put him in there he noticed that it was a nice place to back to when things got warmed up.

    We have a similar situation here. Bea loves her pool and won't get OUT of it. Bo won't go near it.

    Friday, I bought a bigger kiddie pool on the way home from work. The weatherman said 90 degrees. Would massive HEAT be an inspiration for him? I set up two pools yesterday - one for each - and Bea gleefully jumped back and forth between the two pools. Bo sniffed the pool, got in for two seconds and then went laid down in the tiny bit of dirt back there and rolled around in it.

    I gave the smaller pool to the neighbor lady.

    Well that was sweet of him! I will see how Ellie does today and I am just going to leave it up to her. I felt so bad last night after it cooled down outside it was still very warm inside and Miss Belly still wanted to cuddle with me but kept moving all over to cool off. Finally I grabbed an ice pack and that settled her down.

    Aubie loves her pool. She constantly gets in it if its hot or you leave her outside with it too long. She learned quickly that it keeps her cool. Actually, its a plus for me because she will happily get in the tub for a bath all by herself now since it has water in it.

    We haven't gotten a pool yet for Athena. But she absolutely loves water, unfortunately she doesn't realize she sinks and doesn't swim. Anyway, in the mean time she loves to play in the hose. We will leave it running on the ground and she will literally just lay on top of the water coming out and won't let the other dogs have any water. Part selfishness I'm sure, as she things everything is hers.

    That's all Emma does too, gets her feet wet but that's it. Now Wilson, he's constantly in his pool and will sit in it for a good 10 minutes each time.
