Puppy Pool Party!

On hot days we like to fill up the pool and throw the dogs in. They don't usually stay in, so we throw cookies in, and Maggie will go into the water and get them, but Clyde still isn't so sure...

Maggie is pretty brave (Or not very she will do anything to get a cookie!  Even put her whole face under the water. Haha!

 We take a lot of water proof toys and put them in the water in attempts to get them to jump in. The only thing that can really get them in the water (besides cookies) is the little tennis ball pictured below. They love that one.

 Maggie's the brave one.

 Since Clyde won't get in the pool very easily, Kelly usually decides he needs to get wet one way or another, so he sprays him with the hose.

Then he gets all upset and I have to hold him because of his daddy being "mean".

Yes, his chin is covered in pimples. It's getting better now, but we are wiping his chin after he eats and putting acne medicine on it. lol

We've done a few things this summer, but nothing totally blog worthy. We are planning a vacation for the 3rd week in September, so that will be a lot of fun! Once I have more pictures uploaded to Picasa, I'll blog some more about the summer.  =)


  1. Summer Fun! You can put pieces of hot dogs in pool also! Carrots too! At least those don't get soggy! Maybe putting the hose sprayer on mist would be less scary? Poor guy. Do you use metal bowls? Our Chloe had awful acne and then we switched to metal bowls and wash them after each use.


  2. Awww, poor Clyde getting squirted! The mister is a better idea. Mack and I didn't like our pool either, so it went away...

    You guys are so cute!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  3. How cute! Back in Georgia, before we moved into my grandparents house that has a pool, we had a baby pool for our big lab to wallow in when it is hot. We haven't taken Newnan near water, but his old owner said he'd stand at the edge, but never really go in. He HATES in-ground sprinkler systems. He ripped the cap off our neighbor's!
