Relaxing by the pool

We went to my parents' house this weekend. It was so hot that we spent the majority of it in the pool!
If we weren't in the pool, we were playing Wii in the house. the old boys were always found on the couch..Tucker (13 year old JRT), Truflz (8 year old Shih Tzu) and Dante (11 year old hot dog).
While in the pool, Uncle Jason amazed Boone with the incredible appearing rubber ball trick
All the dogs ended up in the pool at some point. (well, except Dana who prefered to be inside instead of on the 'child proof' deck and Shiloh who takes 12 hours to dry)
Everyone could swim...except Cali. Her back legs wouldn't move and if we let go of her, her legs would float sideways and to the top. No effort..she knew Daddy would NOT let her drown.

So we realized quickly that Cali would not be a swimmer. So..she found a more 'suitable' pool activity.
I know I look good..
Catching some rays..
And because we are just that weird...
She laid on this float (which was made of mesh so she was laying in water) for 30 minutes..never moved or tried to get off.
and just in case any one was worried for her 'non-swimming' safety...have no fear..Daddy was NEVER far away.

Cali is the queen bee - as if there was ever any doubt. We have a pool and we debate putting them in it. Mostly because we are afraid they will like it and decide to go in on their own unsupervised - just like naughty children do :) Fab pics.

Cali looks like she's posing for Sports Illustrated.

Hi there!
Linked to your blog via Life with Dogs - great to finally see some blogging hounds!! Although my blog is about a french bulldog, there are 3 rescue hounds in my extended family. Love your blog, especially the photos of Cali on the raft! We'll be back to see what else you guys are up to! Feel free to stop by our blog sometime (there is even the occasional guest appearance by a hound!!)
