So I was trying to think of a way to keep Brodie cool this summer, allow him to have some fun, and still enjoy the balcony. I found this little blue swimming pool for $10 at Walmart, and so I decided to try it out. I brought it home yesterday, carried buckets of water from my bathroom to the pool, and added a few ice cubes. Brodie wasn't too sure what to think at first, but then he hopped right in and started splashing, digging, and eating the ice. He was soon soaking wet! It's handy for me too - as long as I have my feet in the water, it keeps me cool enough to sit on the balcony even in the heat. I even put on my bathing suit and shorts and sat in it with him - ah! We invited Zoey down to enjoy the pool with him, and those two dogs had a blast! I imagine we'll be spending many afternoons out on the balcony in the little bitty swimming pool this summer.
