Shock, horror and awards!

RIP Swimming Pool 2009-2009

OMG. My mom did something this morning, it's uncomprehensible! I think she's been invaded by a body snatcher.....


Bah! What what she thinking?!?! It was MY pool! So what if it was covered in dirt (dirt that I worked very hard on getting on it btw) and had so many tiny holes (perfectly matching a certain GSD's teeth...but I'm going with the squirrels learned to shoot buckshot) that it leaked water and looked more like a cool fountain than a pool and could only hold water for about an hour before becoming completely empty.

But it's gone. I stood and watched in terror as she dragged it to the side of the road for the trashmen this morning. I barked at her, but she didn't listen...she was too hellbent on her evil plot of destruction to hear my pleas. I watched in horror as the garbage men tossed my half eaten, non-usable pool into the back of the truck and drove off.
When she walked back in the house I just gave her the stink eye. She told me that the pool was unusable, we couldn't fill it with water anymore and with it just laying in the back yard we looked like what she called "white trash". I don't know if I can ever trust her alone with my toys again...Bawk Bawk is missing a squeaker and two feet...she CANNOT take away my Bawk Bawk or I quit I tell ya! Goodbye sweet pool! We'll always have the memories!! You were my friend, my giant water bowl, chewtoy and cooling complete me!
Anyway, I was quite pleased and uplifted when my buddy Khyra gave me my first two blog awards!!! How awesome is that! I guess when one doggie door closes another opens. So here they are!

I have to pass these on to five friends....drumroll please.........
Check out these great dog blogs. They'll make you smile...even if your MOM did throw away your kiddie pool!


  1. How horrible, Anna!!! The least she could have done was to fill it with dirt and let you use it as a great digging spot. Maybe next year she will get you a bigger one.

    Congrats on your awards - Khyra is so wonderful, isn't she?

    Tail wags, the OP Pack

  2. That is terrrribble!!! Keep after her. Maybe next summer you can convince her to get you another one. The pool is VERY important to doggies like us.!!!! Like the OP Pack it could have become a great diggingh spot. Congrats on the awards. You deserve them.!!!
    ALSO - thank you for the awards. VeryPawsome!!
    Ernie & Sasha

  3. Thanks, Anna for the cool awards! They is the first I have gotted! Congrats to you for getting the awards. Bumming about your pool. My mom used my pool to keep GUINEA PIGS in when we was fostering them. Can you believe it? Well, I wasn't using it anymore anyways but still...

  4. Anna, congrats on your awards and thank you so much for passing them on to me!

    I'm sorry your mom tossed your dear pool. Hopefully she's planning on getting you a bigger one!
