The Pool Party

Maggie is a very hairy dog. She get's pretty warm when it's hot outside...so over the weekend, Irv decided to go get a new doggie pool.

He put it out in the yard and Maggie and Wrigley went to check it out.

Once it was filled, Maggie went over to take a closer look.

With just a little coaxing from Irv....

in she went!

She tried to tell Wrigley how wonderful it felt....

by barking and jumping all around....

and getting in again to show her how safe and fun it was.....

she jumped some more.....

but Wrigley just looked at it.....

So Maggie got in and laid down in the (ice cold) lovely water...

she played all by herself and had so much fun!

She even splashed!

Wrigley licked the water off the side of the pool....


Maggie got out and laid in the grass like a frog....all stretched out....

Where was Sparky during the pool party? Sunbathing.....

Perfect story! Love the progression of the photographs! Maggie's a treat isn't she? I love that photo of Wrigley licking the splashes! Sparky's sunbathing portrait is simply sweet!

great pictures and story. we used to have a rottweiler (very gentle; she thought she was a lap dog) and she loved to get into her pool in the summer. she'd stand there and drink the water, too.

We have a pool like that too. None of our dogs thinks it looks like fun. They must think they're going to get a bath if they get in.

Maggie and Cuji would be fast friends! I'm envious of all your green grass. :) I think I'd like to stretch out in it like Maggie.

Maggie looks so cute!! We bought Todd and Lucy a pool one year and neither one of them would get in it!

At least Maggie had a good time!

Happy weekend,

I loved this post. So cute. I wonder if Wrigley will get used to it? It must feel terrific on a hot sunny day.
