Puppies in the Pool

18 08 2009

I have the pure joy of watching Elise again (last time she was over, naw).
The two of them had some kind of “Excitement Show-Down” yesterday, as they damn near barreled me out of the door last night with love and toys and jumping and barking and tail-chasing and running back-and-forth.
I’ve pretty much decided that this is what it would be like with twin toddlers. Thus, when the time comes, I’m certain it will be the payback for dropping rocks down my neighbor’s sewer pipe.

After mowing the lawn Saturday, I decided that perhaps throwing the kids outside would be good for everyone.
It was about a billion degrees. Okay, that’s a bit of a hyperbole, but it was about 90 with high humidity.
When it gets to be that hot out, I take out the pool. (not to mention, more time to play with the camera and an HD filter)

Somedays, its just enough to have your paws in the water

Somedays, it's just enough to have your paws in the water

And this is how Elsie enjoys the pool

And this is how Elsie enjoys the pool

An you puts yur paws in da watta and sploosh like dis! Yeah. No.

"An you puts yur paws in da watta and sploosh like dis!" "Yeah. No."

And other days, you need to just put your face in

Sometimes, that water is just too cold and you need a run to warm up

I was going to use this as my Wordless Wednesday contribution, but it’s too cute to wait.

Mr. Pickles wants a pool like Bailey! Water and big brown dogs! Fabulous combination!

it started with Bailey’s adopted grandpa, Gulliver… he’d get so hot in the summer and my parents passed someone throwing out a kiddie pool.
Bailey’s is from Toys’r’Us (it fit in the back of my 2000 Focus) and costs about half as much as the ones at the petstore.
Best part is watching her try to pick up the water with her mouth… like snowballs in summer.

Clover likes to just sit and enjoy the cool water. Cosmo? He likes to try and empty the pool by splashing about! Cute photos!!
