The Paddling Pool
Hallo Bloggy friends! Trilby here (that's me in the middle) - Magic is so busy training for her next Olympic event that she's letting me tell you about a strange thing that appeared in our garden yesterday. It was a sort of squashed up plastic parcel in the beginning but after air was pumped into it - suddenly it was huge and then got filled with water! We thought it was a big drinking bowl but the peeps kept telling us to get in! Well we weren't going to do that and get our paws wet :-( but then the peeps threw toys in and then...treats! Can you see the ones that sank?
When he saw there were treats Crybbe came out and said "Leave it to me, I'll fish them out"
But he couldn't reach them and they kept floating away or even sinking :-(
Well after a bit of us all sitting watching him, Crybbe thought there was only one thing for it..and he got in!
After that he wouldn't let us get in until he had got all the bits that were floating. He couldn't get the ones that sank though..and he wouldn't let us try. So Judith took him indoors and tried to get us to have a go:
Well my Mum, Magic tried hard to reach the treats without getting in but I knew she wouldn't make it and my Aunty Caoimhe was definitely not having anything to do with paddling pools.....so I thought I would just go for it:
I wasn't going to risk all 4 paws to start with but it wasn't too bad so..
I got in and when I couldn't hook the treats out with my paw I just had to go underwater to get them:
My beard got a bit wet as you can see but I did clean up with the treats and no-one else dared follow me :-). Aoife thought she might have been able to get them out by letting out the water over the side but she wasn't allowed to get away with that! So I quite enjoyed it in the end but me and Crybbe were the only two to get our paws wet. If it stays sunny next weekend I may get another chance to dive for treats! Goodbye for now- Trilby
