I love the month of May in Canada. It finally signals the beginning of warm weather and we can start to think about using our pool again. Removing the pool tarp is a chore we look forward to completing.
Cider was within the fenced in pool area today while we were working. It seemed like a good way for her to enjoy the sunshine, have her big plastic satellite dish off for a while, and not be tempted to run around the back yard. She is still suppose to be taking it easy after all.
Well, I guess that dark green tarp looks like solid ground to our canine friends. My dog found out today that it most certainly is not ! The first swim of the season was had by Cider . . . and it was most definitely a mistake.
Here she is all dried off with the second bandage of the day. The "Enter Marineland" part of the towel and the matching blue bandage does seem rather appropriate now! It actually says Educational Center . . . but Enter Marineland is accurate too. Luckily Cider was not wearing her cone at the time of her surprise swim and was close enough to the side of the pool that my husband could grab her collar and direct her towards the stairs. Trying to swim on a tarp must feel like being in quicksand. I am glad we got her out quickly. No harm done : )
