Let's go swimming!

Oh my goodness, what a week of excitement! First off, my dad, who shall now be referred to as Pappy, was here for several days, helping Hubby with some home improvements that turned out just gorgeous. During the course of his stay, Dex became his little shadow. They woke me up one morning playing. On Pappy's last night here, Dex snuggled up in the recliner with him, as if he knew he would be leaving soon. He certainly misses his Pappy.

After the projects were finished, I got the bright idea to get Dexter a swimming pool. Not sure how he would do with it, I just got a cheap one from a big box retailer, and I am proud to say I inflated it myself, no pump needed (Pappy always did say I was full of hot air!).

We put him in the first night, and the water was cold, and he was not sure what to think. So we were doubtful he would like it. But yesterday, every time he went out to potty, he would play, and then want in the pool. He went in 4 times yesterday! At first I thought he just wanted to drink the water, but he will just stand there, with his tail wagging. It is a nice way to cool down for him I think.



I can already tell, it is going to be an awesome summer!
