She has only been in 2 pools in her life, and they've been in-ground, and therefore had steps to get in. My family has an above-ground pool with a deck built around it, but the only way in is a ladder and that was confusing to her My little sister was trying to help her get on a float. It sort of worked.... ...but she fell off and had to swim back to the scary ladder. Then she gave up and just decided to walk around the perimeter and occasionally stick her face and paws in. She then jumped on things. Then jumped on higher things to sit with my sister. Afterwards she jumped on to the railing and walked the perimeter of the deck like a balance beam. And this is just one from her playing with Bubbles from last night. They are crazy.
