Can Lily and I come?libspecialist said:I will be moving to a new house with a swimming pool.
Oh, chimom, my heart just about stopped when I began to read this. I don't think I could handle hearing about another chi tragedy this week. Glad it turned out okay in your case.chimom said:PLEASE be espeially careful with your furbabies around the pool, at least until they grow accustomed to it. I almost lost my chi, Tia, last year in my daughter's pool. Last October, I stayed at my daughter's house with the grandchildren while my daughter and son in law went on a cruise. Tia had been around the pool prior quite frequently.Early one a.m. I let her and my daughters dogs out to do their business. About 5 minutes later, I called them to come back in and Tia was missing. I stepped outside the door and she was floating in the deep end of the pool. We managed to get her out in time, but it was a close call. I am not trying to scare you, and I know the common belief is that dogs naturally know how to swim. I don't know what happened in her case. She was not in good health, and had a severe heart murmur so perhaps that had something to do with it. Just please exercise caution with your furbabies around the pool.
