Pet Pride: a big, happy, wet dog

When we adopted Lindy, we were advised to buy her a wading pool for summer weather. At first, we put it on the lawn, but when we emptied it, the big patch of dead grass under it was too good for Lindy to resist, so she dug it all up!
Now we keep her wading pool on the concrete patio area, which keeps the water cooler, and she is not at all tempted to dig up the patio.
However, it still means drying off a big wet dog when she comes into the house. I've decided to leave that chore to my husband, who is bigger and stronger than I am! LOL
Meanwhile, with summer temperatures having finally reached the sunniest spot in Canada, Lindy is thrilled to have her pool, especially when she comes home from a walk.

Mmm, this is nice and cool on the pads of my feet!

Ahh, yes, this is bliss!
I can lie down, but I can't swim. Maybe we should find a lake.

Pet Pride
the meme hosted by Lindy's friend Bozo and his family at the Pets Forever blog in Mumbai, India.
Lindy says: "Hi, Bozo, if you come to visit me, we can take turns in my pool, because I don't think we'd both fit at once."

Oh Lindy, you look so happy in your pool. If we liked water we might be tempted to jump in there with you.

Oh my GOODNESS, she looks just like Jas. We had a wading pool too but the dogs - who ADORE swimming in every other water source at hand - used it as a big drinking bowl. Sigh. Smart Lindy, keeping cool.

Awww, Lindy's so happy sitting in the wading pool. Bet she'll be even more happy swimming in the lake. Purrs!

Awwww... Lindy looks so happy and cool! Actually she reminds me of my granddaughter and her pool in Illinois.

Cool dips in the hot incoming summer months would be heavenly for Lindy. Nice pics Kay!

Too cute, is Lindy and too clever are her humans for thinking of this treat in hot weather. When I had my large garden with three ornamental ponds, the dogs waded through these when hot. Will have to think about buying a pool like Lindy's. Please give her a big pat on that gorgeous head from me. Hugs Jo. The Tanzanian Trio says: Lindy, we'll watch you and Bozo taking turns!

It's been so hot the last few days I was wishing I had a pool like that, too, Lindy!! But I do have a fan!! Stay cool!

Beautiful pictures of a beautiful dog! She truly seems to enjoy her own little pool. I especially like the last image - she's gorgeous!

Denise said...

Oh my goodness, how she must love that pool. I can see she's smiling from ear to ear. Lindy sure is a beautiful dog. Thanks for stopping by, and I can only hope that they make those cars for bigger dogs too.
