This was a pretty typical afternoon....Xylo climbing into the pool over and over from the step, Ryan waiting to jump into the pool from the side and Abby screaming at both of them at the top of her lungs.
I didn't think any of the dogs would go in the pool without a lot of coaxing.
I was wrong.
Ryan jumped in from the side after a ball on the first day. Xylo climbed in minutes later and it was close to impossible to keep him out after that. Abby, who has been nervous of the pool edge since her first day home from the shelter (4 years ago!!) saw the boys swimming and started coming in to retrieve rings.
After grabbing a ring she would run to certain spots in the yard to put it down, pick it up, run back, put it down, pick it up, etc.
