Now that the weather has warmed up. The puppies have been using the dog splash pool that I bought them.

You can't quite see in the photo, but Fozzie's head is completely wet where he dunks it in the water to get things from the bottom of the pool. I think he has some Newfoundland in there somewhere :D

Image

Florence can't quite get in by herself so we put an old Ikea chair thing next to it for her. They had a great time playing and it really cooled the boy down - he was panting like a steam train before we went in!

Image

This morning at 7:30 I heard splashes in the garden and went to investigate. Yep, they're in there again already today so I think the purchase was probably worth the exorbitant cost :D :D

Ahhhhhhhh yes, the off training isn't working very well and they've been allowed on the sofa for a while now (I like cuddles in the evening).

The sofas are now a little damp, well actually, they're really quite wet, but the important thing is that the puppies are happy, isn't it?????????? Nothing like a house smelling of wet dog when you are about to put it on the market, it'll tempt those buyers in :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

They look so happy together, it's a brilliant idea. Dare I ask where you got it from as Poppy is so uncomfortable in the heat and at the moment hubby and I are having a war of words over having her trimmed! :shock:

I got it from pet planet but it very pricey - £102!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are two sizes and this is the larger one. It does have the plug hole which makes emptying easy and it is non slip.

The blue boat that you can see in the photo can be bought from The Entertainer for £15 but Fozzie won't go in it. I've posted a video of Florence in it though which makes me laugh every time I see it on the Photos of Doodles thread.

We put the kids pladdling pool up for her and she loved it until she tried to dig her way out - so it went in the dustbin

Brilliant pics

they look like they are having fun! I might have to get one cos my two young'uns ldo ike to have a splish-splash

Ever the scot though - I'm thinking I might pop along to the garden centre and check out the rigid garden pond inserts cos the plain square or round ones look quite similar and they're only half the price.

I've got one for Phoebe but haven't used it yet so I don't know how she'll take to it. Maybe this weekend if the weather is nice.

He does - labradors were bred from Newfoundlands.

Great photos!

I'd love to get a paddling pool for Commodore but I can only imagine how long it would last before his nails tore a hole....

We have a barrel pond and he likes to plonk front paws (to the elbow) and face in there to cool down. And then climb on me and tongue bath me. I'm lucky if he didn't pick up loads of mud on his wet face in between the pond and my bath...!

At the rehoming place where I got my late greyhound, they put out buckets of cold water for the dogs and they just stood their front legs in them when they got hot. That's a cheap and easy solution!
