Adler Falls in Pool

Yup, you read it right. Our dog who hates the water fell into the swimming pool of the beach house we rented with some friends in Union Pier, Mich. One minute she was prancing around the perimeter of the pool trying to figure out how she was going to play with our friend Perry who was in the middle of the pool and the next minute she was putting her paws on the small, very slippery tile ledge on the deep side of the pool and plunging head first into the water. Good thing Perry was nearby and pulled her head above the water by the scruff of her neck so that she could hang on to the side and doggie paddle. I was surprised, she didn't freak out as much as I thought she would. I was also surprised I didn't. Tom and I just hoisted our 80-pound dog over the side of the pool and laughed at her. The downside of all this is that we didn't have her collar on to help get her out of the pool. We had just taken it off because it was full of sand from Adler's morning romp on the beach. The picture above is literally minutes after she was rescued.

Lots of other good Adler stories from our vacation so stay tuned for my next post about her new tricks learned on vacation with the attention of our six friends and Perry's training abilities.
