Poodle pool party!

A pool or a pond?  A pool will do for me! I got a new pool, and Bruno’s visiting.  Woohoo! Did you know poodles are water retrievers?  (No, Paris, we’re not silly fashion accessories!)  Fun fact:  “Poodle” comes from the German word “Pudel” which means “plays in water”!  Anyway, we learned to play in the pool this weekend.  We were nervous @ 1st, but “mom” & “dad” safely eased us into it.  First we got in with no water & a bathmat on the pool bottom so we didn’t slip.  Then we hopped in & out of it for chicken treats.  (Yummy!)  When we were having fun, “dad” slowly added water while we munched on chicken in the pool.  He put about 2 inches of water in it.  Then “mom” floated some of my favorite balls in the pool, and I jumped in & out to get those.  (A blast plus a great way to cool off!)  They added a ramp to the end of the pool for another way to jump or look into it.  Bruno mostly watched me hop in & out from the ramp, after he took a dip in it by himself.  Then Bruno, aka “Splash”,  jumped off the ramp into the pool!  Cannon ball! When we’re even braver, they’ll put more water in it.  I’ll let you know how that goes.

Check out my pool pics & video.    I hope your weekend was as epic as mine!Rusty

    Watching Rusty and Bruno having fun in the pool was a pleasure . . . as was seeing “Made in USA” imprinted on the side of the pool. We’re having a heat wave on the East coast, so I may just buy one for myself!

    Loved your white teeth & how alert you look. Bruno looks like a fun play mate. Your swimming pool is the best. Somebody loves you.
