Does Penny Like the Pool?

Since we bought the girls their pool, we have gotten Penny in a few times to see if she would like it or not.  Much like with the trampoline, she tends to run around the outside of the pool barking when we are in it and she is not.  We bought her a pink polka dot life jacket and get her in when we all get in, but we could never tell if she really liked it or not.

Yesterday the girls and I were swimming and Penny was doing her usual run around the outside and bark routine.  We didn't think anything of it until Carson saw her standing at the top of the ladder waiting for us to let her in!  I strapped on her life jacket and off she went.  She likes to swim around in a circle and come back to the ladder to rest.  She will put her front paws on one step and even put her back paws on the step below to rest.  It is quite entertaining.
Here she is with her pink polka dot life jacket on...

So Carson had an ear infection this weekend.  So that's both kiddos in less than a week.  We are going to be more diligent with the ear drops from now on.  It's hard to tell her that she can get in the pool but she can't get her head under water.  Although it might be harder to tell the other kid who has healed already that she can't splash her sister while they are in the pool.

I am glad we got the pool for the girls, it's been refreshing with the sweltering heat outside, and entertaining with Penny the Pig Dog becoming an avid swimmer.
