Loving our new doggy pool

So far the new foldable pool ('buddy and belle' brand, made in China) is a great success. I had put it away, and it folded up really small, and fairly easily, though of course I couldn't' get it back into the original box. Who ever can?

It fitted comfortably into an ordinary cotton shopping bag, 42 cm square (about 17 inches).

Today it's hot and the house is full of workmen replacing a damaged ceiling, so there's no cooling possible. It seemed like a good time to try the pool once again.

Penny doesn't do much jumping these days, due to a past operation on her left knee and to a degree of arthritis, but she leapt in and out today, having fun. We'll hope she doesn't pay the price tomorrow.

What a nice pool :) Must be refreshing on those hot days. I want one too, if there's ever going to be a real summer in Finland again, last year it was very chilly and rainy all the time :/

What a beautiful pool to keep you nice and cool on those superhot days, Penny!

Lilli, lovely to hear from you! I hope you do get a lovely summer in 2016.

Mitch and Molly, I'll bet Penny would love to have some of those great ponds that you have at your place, and lovely birds to be friends with.

That looks like great fun and what a good idea for hot climates. Penny looks really sweet all sopping wet.
~lickies, Ludo!

Ludo, not everyone is as lucky as you and Arran, to live near beautiful lakes. And snow! So we have to make a teensy lake in the backyard.
