Will someone please tell me why I thought Isabella would sink like a hot rock? Ha Ha.
We recently moved to a new house with a pool and I've been so nervous about her falling in. I never leave her unattended in the yard. Her butt has slipped in once, but I fished her out in a split second. I even considered a doggie life vest, just in case...
Now that the weather is warming up, the kids have been in the pool several times. Isabella goes NUTS and runs around barking. She's getting used to it, and calming down...a little. The barking has slowed down, but she is still nuts when they are in the pool.
I always said that when I get in the pool (water still too cold for me!), I wanted to put her in and see how she does. Missed my chance on that one! A few days ago she was chasing the kids around the pool and fell all the way in. She was close to the steps so I just stood at the edge of the pool and called her toward the steps. She swam right over and got herself out. She seemed to LOVE it! So cute.
Now, she hasn't gotten in on her own free will, and I still won't let her play in the yard by herself...I worry that if she fell in the other end, she'd tire before getting to where she could get herself out. However, it is good to know that she is at least a little water safe!
It's going to be a fun summer!
