Best laid plans of mice and men…
Or, rather, Imp and Wolf in this case.
See, Bazinga, our big red dog, loves water.
She will jump two feet, straight up into the air when she sees anyone with the hose, or somebody wielding a water gun. She loves being sprayed.
So, being that she’s a brachycephalic (fancy name for short-faced) dog, and they’re notoriously bad in dealing with hot weather, we thought, “Wading pool! Bazinga needs a wading pool! Bazinga would LOVE a wading pool!”
Bazinga, however, disagreed.
You know what happens when you try to get a 130 pound dog into a wading pool against her will?
Nothing. That’s what happens. Except it becomes extremely clear that if you continue to try to force the issue, there WILL be a body in the pool. And it won’t be the dog’s.
Makes for fantastic entertainment, though. The Minions and I had a REALLY good time watching Wolf attempt to coax, bribe, and physically manoeuvre Bazinga into the pool.
Score: Bazinga – 1, Wolf – 0
