Ive recently moved and now have an inground swimming pool. It is worrying me sick thinking that my bully Mollee cant swim if she were to get in it. She is very hesitant around it and doesn't seem to like it or be curious about it at all. Id like to keep it that way but i am worried she will get used to it and maybe want to find out what its all about. I just am not comfortable with the thought of her getting in and not being able to get out. Its really worrying me sick like she is one of my kids that cant swim.
So my question is, should i be worried or am i kinda overacting??? My oldest son (age 14)calls me a helicopter mom (always hoovering and watching out) and he said thats what im doing to Mollee too. I would just die if something happened to my babe though.
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Im a helicopter mom too when it comes to Vegas, we live in Florida where it is already 100 today with heat index, it is only in and out to potty this time of year. I do have a pool but I have a 4 ft. baby gate that completely surrounds the pool and locks, that way I don't ever have to worry about Vegas accidently falling in. I am ANAL about when I am not using the pool that the gate is locked at all times!! It is worth looking into just to have piece of mind.
Lulu swims. And trust she is not scared of water.
2BullyMama said and bought a life vest for him but he won't even go through the fence gate anymore which is good. .youre not being a helicopter..better safe than sorry!
I have to agree with everyone else a fence of some type around it and a life jacket because unfortunatley these furkids are like 2 year old skin kids, if you turn your back there in it.
I had mutual friend of friend in San Diego who had a bulldog, they told me that theirs died, they had a pool in their backyard and she never went near it. One day they let her out and when they called her back in she never came, they found her stuck in the pool cover (it was winter). How tragic and so preventable.
We have a 6 ft gate around ours and they can only go in there if we are in there with them.

We just bought a house with a pool as well, and we're going to install alarms on the pool. If anyone falls into the pool it sounds an alarm.

bulldogs and life jackets are a must for sure, hopefully you can put up a fence of some sort to protect your precious baby and for times when you let your baby in the water a life jacket will make a pool day safe and fun for all.
