it's hard to believe...

This innocent creature, who is useless as a Labrador retriever because she can't swim, could be the cause of this backyard adventure...


Khloee walked on the winter tarp to the pool before we had cleaned it thoroughly. We found her standing on the pool stairs unable to move {let me say again - she is a Lab afraid of water}. I had to climb in and guide her out and Chase and Darren "scubaed" in the unheated skanky leaf water to retrieve all the sticks so they wouldn't clog the pump. Isn't the dog supposed to do that? I love how Chase didn't let the air out of the drysuit -- he's here to "pump, you up." He also didn't wear any insulation under the drysuit therefore counteracted the purpose. He didn't last long. Darren on the other hand, was the hero of the day, he is still complaining, but would not get out of the water for over an hour. What is that Seinfield episode about cold water?

Oh my goodness...I think you have a children's story plot, right here in your hands! What a precious, sweet dog. How terrifying for her...yet what a riot for the guys! (I will never forget that Seinfeld episode! "I was in the POOL!")
Have a good weekend.
