We can lead our dog to the pool water, but …

Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle loves frolicking in the water at the lake and ocean during our trips to Cape Cod.

She’s a champ at chasing her ball when we play our backyard games at A Bitty Better in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville.

Our cherished rescue mutt absolutely adores anything and everything to do with my terrific daughter Elisabeth and her significant George Three.

Here’s your ball, Ellie B.

So my dear wife Karen and I thought we’d hit a home run for Ellie B’s first supervised swim when we had the kids over for a barbecue and pool party.

Come on in.

The water is beautiful.

Quick dog-paddle.

Done with it.

Wrong we were.

No dog was harmed in the photography of this blog post.

On we went to the food. A good time was had by all. Yes, Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle got some leftovers, of course.

And now we know we do not have to worry about her diving into the pool on her own when we let her out back by herself.

  1. You just never know. We (and the neighbors) were shocked when our Golden Retriever jumped into the Schuylkill River and took off. We had never seen him swim ! You are right to be relieved…he won’t go in there alone. Pool looks great, Mark.
