:wave: Well i got one of those soft side pools. It is huge and it took a week, 2 truck loads of sand and tons of work and water to get it up and level we had to dump it 2 times completely because it wasnt level but we finally got it up right. :D My water bill will be a sight :( but it is so nice i can go out any time and swim and tan. If anyone has been thinking of getting one i recomend it. The work was worth it of couse at the time i would have told everyone never get one but now that the thing is finnally level it is great!! :wink: the only down side is all the kids want to swimm in the neighborhood. My house is the house all the kids want to hang at anyway but i can barely get them to leave now!! :shock: I dont mind the kids there a good bunch and i love kids so its all good. :lol:
anyway if you thought about one i recomend it highly 8)

That sounds so inviting! I'll be right over. :p I went to the community pool this past weekend and it was so nice with the heat. It was nice to feel weightless for awhile too (I'm 39 weeks pregnant).

We have a pool and I love it. It's sometimes a money pit and a hassle(we just had to change the sand in our filter so we were aggravated :lol: ) but all in all we will never live w/ out a pool again! It's so nice to be able to cut grass and work in the yard and then go cool off in your own pool. :wink:

Watch out for the chlorine.

I recall years ago my vet cautioned me about letting my dogs get in the pool. He simply said the chlorine wasn't very good for them. I don't recall why or any other details - just thought I'd mention it.

Maybe someone else knows why it's bad.

Maybe excessive time in the pool (ie. every day) will dry their skin out? I can't think of any othe reason. I know a lot of people who can't keep their dogs out of the pool.

We put Kismet in our pool once, she swam for a second and then wanted out. I swore I saw her skin start to get a little irritated looking but my hubby said no..that's why I never let her go back in. :?

My daughter and son-in-law have 3 mini doxies who all love their pool. They don't go in every day, usually just on weekends when the family is in the pool. If I remember correctly, I think my daughter mentioned once that her vet had said it was o.k.?

They thoroughly enjoy their pool - they are in it almost every day from late May through the end of September. We have a very long pool season here in Florida.

No Posha is not allowed in the pool. The kids are always asking if they can put her in it. :roll: I tell them NO NO repeatedly like im gonna change my mind or something ( i dont think they listen to well) :shock: hahaha
im afraid she would drown or get hurt by one of the kids on accident.
