Just excited and make it THE BEST THING!

Also, Blaze has done the same thing..jumping out of the pool like that. haha



She does tug and absolutely loves that bumper, but I'll try out some different toys. Do you have any specific mesh floatable toys you recommend? I can poke around petsmart or petvalu to see what I can find too. I've got to definitely work on getting myself pumped up more. I was trying lol... That's pumped up for me, but I'll step it up a few notches next time. Do you think me getting into the pool might help next time? I noticed a few people doing that.

And hahah at our convo in the last video... was telling you about the dead rabbit that my dads dog killed, whoops, didn't know you were still filming
Haha I was laughing when I watched the video and you mentioned the rabbit. We have to do a pool day if your dad is cool with it. I don't know if you have a bbq or not, but heck we can even grill burgers or something and do swimming with the dogs if you want.

I use the Tugga Wubba (what a name, right? lol) http://www.amazon.com/Kong-Tugga-Wub...ds=tugga+wubba

It floats, it holds up to tugging, and it squeaks. The only problem I've had with it is getting distance on the toy for those 20+ foot jumps, but I don't think you need to worry about that just yet.

I have gotten in the pool before to encourage Blaze to get in. And it did work. He kind of went crazy when he saw me in the pool with his toy and jumped in. It's definitely worth a shot!
