Over the years they've welcomed more than a few of my foster dogs, who have had no qualms about launching right into the pool and requiring rescue once they found how deep it was.
Fozzie, fortunately, is smart enough to stick to the fountain to avoid drowning.
Not so Florian.
What a great socialization experience and all-around good time its been to have a place where the dogs can run around, chase lingering smells of woodchucks, try different depths of water, and interact with friendly humans of all ages.
Thanks Aunt Nancy and Uncle Bob! You put up with so much. We promise not to bring two wild impulsive pit bulls, a reactive Anatolian shepherd, and a big tough Akita over to visit all at the same time, and we'll try to get the kids and boyfriends to behave themselves.
