Plunge pool saves fish
Ady & Flo
Banned from the fishpond, the boss has devised a clever plan to keep me and my friends cool during the summer – without beating up on the long suffering goldfish.
He got us a dog pool. Not just a muddy hole in the ground, but a nifty plastic thing from our good friends at Payless Plastics. They said they've sold a good number to the owners of dogs, looking for a cooling dip on hot summer days.
Under the shady pohutukawa, the dog pool is filled with water and when we come home panting from our big runs, we jump straight in. The boss changes the water every week, using it to water Mrs Boss' vege garden. By then, it's got a few added nutrients from muddy, sandy mutts that have been crashing through it all week.
Thanks boss. Now could you just consider a waterslide, bumper boats and maybe a wind-up plastic duck?
That's it for this week folks. Take care out there, keep your mutts cool and, if you're going any deeper than a great dane's kneecap, wear your lifejackets.
