taking a dip

I used to hate the paddling pool mostly because to fill it up the evil water snake would come out. When I was finally brave enough to get out of my hiding place, I tended to use it as a giant water bowl rather than to paddle in!


But it was pretty hot yesterday so I decided to paddle my feet. Mummy and daddy were completely shocked.


This isn’t so bad:-)

Maybe next time they’ll fill it up a bit more though.


I could get used to this!

Do you like to paddle your feet too??

    No! No! No! I hate water on my feet. I dislike puddles, mud and water. Although, I have to say that since the big guy came I have been out in the rain more than I used to and I have picked my way through a few puddles and nothing terrible happened so I’m better than I was. I can’t see me going into the sea or a paddling pool though.
    I like you’re bright yellow pool – very summer-like πŸ™‚

  2. So glad you’ve got over the issues with the paddling pool – you’ll love it when it’s really hot! Such a gorgeous last photo – you’re smiling beautifully!

  3. Oh Misaki, I just love that smiley face in the last photo. You are one beautiful, happy dog. So glad you’ve learnt not to be scared of the giant waterbowl πŸ™‚ You’ll be needing to cool off now summers on its way to you. PS – Litchi is terrified of water. So much so that she stands as far away from her water bowl as possible when drinking. You’d never find her in that πŸ˜€

    I LOVE paddling! Floyd doesn’t like it though… He likes to play with the hose!

  5. Happy cool feet Misaki. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

    Alfie is definitely not as brave as you! He’s terrified of water!

  7. Well I do enjoy walking through puddles – does that count?????

  8. OOO, this looks like fun!

  9. That looks like fun for YOU, M. For me, it’s a little too much like a B-A-T-H. *shiver*

    Love and licks,

  10. I have such a waterbowl too – in blue and I always made a circle around this thingy and I never went in . Now the waterbowl is mom’s bed for herbs and I used it on saturday as a litter box (mom was hopping mad)

    For me it is more of a soaker pool. I get in and lie down, try to get as wet as possible. My sister uses it as a giant water bowl.

  12. I don’t like the water snake either but i love to paddle.


  13. Too fun.I love your smile!!

    I have never tried it, but after seeing that smile on your face, you are sure making me want to!Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  18. You look quite happy there, Misaki. We have enough rain pouring down now that we won’t need a pool – our yard is going to be one big lake!

  19. Oh, wow! You got your feet wet! πŸ˜€ Love that yellow pool!

  20. speedyrabbit says:

    love seeing you paddle your feet,xx Speedy

  21. A Husky Life says:

    Good for you, Misaki! Rocco is so silly, he still won’t go into his….

  22. It looks like you were pretty happy to get your paws wet and cooled off! Boomer and Dottie used to have a little pool like this one but refused to get in, they would only drink out of it and swim in the river or lake.

    • Misaki says:

      I was exactly the same as them! Daddy thinks its because I had to climb into the pool, rather than just stepping srtaight in

  23. No puddling for me either Misaki, I like your smiling puddling picture, man did you have fun πŸ˜€

    Misaki my brave friend…the only water that touches this Diva’s body is the water that gets on my tongue from my drinking fountain.
    Hugs Madi

  25. Yeah, Ma bought me one of those years ago, I wasn’t havin’ any of it!!!! I just stared at her like she was crazy! I’m not gettin’ in there!! I don’t care if its 100 degrees out…not happenin’!
    Now that she’s seen how brave you are, she’s gettin’ thoughts that maybe I could change my mind, too…..sure…

    • Misaki says:

      Mummy and daddy couldn’t believe it when I got in it, but I think it was just sooo hot I needed to do something to cool down:-)

  26. Wow you look like your having fun x

  27. It does look like our water bowl. Max & Bella

  28. Misaki, you have discovered Bliss!

  29. finnhoward says:

  30. Novroz says:

    And Misaki…I love your smiling face on the last photo πŸ™‚
