Pool's Open !!

This has been a crazy, stressful week and I'll post more about that in my next post, probably later today, but there was one high spot. Because we've had some very warm, sometimes hot weather, we decided to fill the wading pool.
It was a good time for the dogs and for us, watching them enjoy the water.
When Rob walked over with the hose, everyone gathered to see if he was actually going to turn the water on.
Once he did, they couldn't wait for the pool to fill. Here Norma Jean and Tess are trying to catch the water as it leaves the hose.
Samba's ready.

Boy, that cool water feels good on a hot day.
Fudge and Lola think they could use a little more water, please.
It looks like they're searching for fish.
This is the first year that Lola has shown this much interest in the water. Looks like she'll be going to the lake this summer.
When Norma Jean jumped in, everyone else left. She throws water all over the place and the others clear out when she starts splashing. She practically empties the pool. This was a good start to the season.

Makes ME happy to see the dogs and their pool! Hooray! Maybe it'll be warm enough for ours soon?

It's no where near warm enough for water here. But at least we broke 60 today!

What fun that they are all interested in the pool!! Java never cared for it and Piper is the only one of the Scotties that likes it - of course Ruairi was too small last Summer to go in with Piper - so who knows, he's fairly rambunctious and might just love it - guess we'll find out when the weather warms up. Lilly hates anything to do with water - sometimes I think she wishes she didn't even have to drink it - LOL!!
