I learned what a pool is....

Mom and I took a trip earlier this week - we went to a hotel (I love hotels!!)

The last time I stayed in a hotel it was at the beach, and I went swimming in the ocean everyday, and chased pelicans. That was fun! That was a long time ago - way before I started blogging, but here is a picture. I hope we go back sometime!

This vacation was almost as fun - there was snow! This is the most snow I have seen since I was a baby!

Mom and I played a lot in this snow - look at all our footprints!

As you can see from this picture that I have expertly diagrammed for you, the snow, and the pool, were right outside our hotel room.

I made Mom take me for a walk every 5 minutes!

It was very very cold! But that is my favorite! It makes me frisky!

This is the "swimming pool." I had never seen a swimming pool before. I have only swimmed in the ocean.

Mom and I opened the gate and walked around this pool. Notice how the corner of the pool is nice and dry in this picture.

While Mom was talking (yak yak yak) to her friends, she was not watching me at all, and I strolled over to the corner of the pool and took a good long sniff.

Then I decided to walk on the pool.

That's when I learned I can't walk on a pool!
Look at the broken ice where I fell in!
I went under the water a bunch, and then I treaded water and swam over to the corner, and put my front legs up on the corner, and used my back legs to climb out of the pool.
Then I shook off, and got everybody wet.
Now I was friskier that ever!

This is me, chillin' on the bed in the hotel, after my swim.
I had SO much fun on this trip!

Remember these guys?

Well, in some weird coincidence, they were staying at the same hotel!
Mom and I visited their room a lot, and it turns out they aren't as bad as I thought. OR maybe they are.....

Mom calls Tai (the cocker spaniel) "Girlfriend" a lot, and sometimes calls her BGF (best girl friend), and holds her on her lap a lot, and gives her lots of rubs and treats, so that is not so good. I get jealous....

And I can't see Nummy very well, 'cause she is so tiny, and she's black, so she blends in with other shadows (but look at her glowing evil eyes in picture!), and I step on her sometimes - it is an accident! Really!!

Note: Mom's version of this whole vacation may vary from mine. You guys know who to believe - we gotta stick together, right?

HI Bailey! Sorry I haven't visited in AGES - my bad secretary! Happy Belated New Year and you had quite an adventure in what must have been a furry frigid pool! Good for you to get out by yourself - that must have been hard work and such a surprise when the pool's frozen topping caved in all around you. Interesting that you met your "pal" there!!! Even tho mom pats other pups, she loves you the most! Hope you had (or are having) more fun on your vacay!
Hugs xo

Woof! Woof! Bailey. It looks like you had FUN in your short vacation trip. it is always great to stay in a hotel. LOVE your photo by the ocean - maybe your mom will take you there this summer. Gee! saw what happen to your mom's eye .. hope it's healing well. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Hi Samantha - This is Bailey's Mom, here.

Sorry if Bailey's post was confusing - it wasn't really a coincidence that we ran into Tai and Nummy at that hotel -

We all were staying at that hotel because Nummy and Tai's Daddy had emergency heart surgery, and Bailey and I went up there 'cause we are good friends, and wanted to provide support!

What a nice vacation you had! I've never gotten to stay in a hotel before...

Hi Bailey;
Sounds like you had an interesting time, (poor Mom) no more pillow fights with your Mom.
Hope your Mom's eye heals soon and stay off the ice.

Hi Bailey,
What an adventure, or should I say mis-adventure. Sorry to read about your Mom's eye, sure hope it gets better soon. Make sure you take good care of her, and don't try to walk on anymore pools, ok?
Luv, Lucy (Woof!)

Sam said...

Weren't you cold in the water? Brrr.... Either way, it looks like you had lots of fun!


Miley said...

Hi Bailey!!!You got to stay at a hotel??? How lucky!!! I have a pool, they are very fun, probably not in this weather with the ice and all!!! Great pics!!

Together We Save said...

Oh my goodness... falling into that icey water... sounds exciting.

Bailey said...

Sam: It was very cold, and I shivered a lot until Mom rubbed me with lots of towels.

But I would do it again in a skinny minute! It was fun!

(Especially the part where Mom's friend was screaming like a fool 'cause she thought I was going to drown! Doesn't she know us water dogs can swim good?)

Sierra Rose said...

An ICY POOL!!! That sound slightly scary but you seemed to handle it quite well.
Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

Hi Bailey,

Sorry for not visiting your blog. We haven't forgotten about you! We were busy as we just moved into our new house.
