Splish Splash

Okay mom did get us a wading pool over the weekend, but we didn't get to try it out til early Sunday evening. While mom filled the pool and tossed in a couple of water toys, me and Banjo supervised. Banjo quickly decided the wading pool made a great water dish, but he had no desire to get wet. I wanted to play with those new toys so when I couldn't reach them without getting in, I finally got my feet wet. After a few minutes I decided it wasn't so bad being wet. The cold water felt good cause it was still hot even though the sun was getting low in the sky.

Here's a series of pictures mom took to document the big event. BOL

"If only I could reach that toy!"

"Almost got it!"

"It keeps floating away!"

"I'm going to get that toy no matter what!"

"Please excuse mom, she wasn't paying attention to where the camera was pointed."

"Get the ball Bijou!"

Banjo watched from the side but wouldn't get in with me.

"I ain't getting in there. NO WAY!"

"I don't care if the cool water does feel good. I still ain't getting in!"

Mom finally put the little runt in the water. He just stood in one place, afraid to move, then suddenly jumped out and ran off.

"Oh geez mom! I said I didn't want to get in!"

"This water is freezing! I'm outta here!!"

Your pool looks so fun.....I think it just takes a while to get used to it. I'm sure you will both love it. Have a fun day.

You are so brave to get into your pool! Reading your post inspired my mom to get mine out, but I just don't know what to do with it! Maybe if our moms got me & Banjo water wings we'd feel better about getting in....

WOooF!! That pool looks just your size!! I am very proud of how brave you are, I'm sure the little squirt will catch on, I wasn't too thrilled with it either at first!

Hi, Bijou!
A pawesome pool!
when my mom tries to make me go into the pool sometimes I don't like it... but when I came from my walkie... I go directly into it... still wearing my dress!
I am sure Banjo will love it!
Kisses and hugs

Hi guys, I certainly understand how you feel Banjo as I hate water too. I quiver the whole time my mum gives me a bath and once she took me in the pool with her and my heart raced that fast she didn't even let me get wet.
