June 4, 2010


It has been brought to my attention that I do not have any water in my pool. I was unaware that one of the preconditions for having a 'pool' is that there should be water in it. A certain tall someone (who shall remain nameless) has evidently decided that I am not worth the .04¢ that it would take to put water in my so-called 'pool'. So, now I feel a bit foolish, as I was basically lounging around in a big plastic bowl, much like a giant Cheerio before you put in the milk.

With this in mind, I shall have a discussion with a certain tall someone regarding the water situation at the Jack Day Spa and Bait Shop. Thank you.

Come to think of it, I don't think I've seen any bait around here either. Something decidedly non-fishy is going on here.

(Note from the tall guy: Yes, many of the observant readers noticed that there is no water in Jack's pool. The reason that there is no water in the pool is that today is Jack's flea and tick medicine day and I do not like for him to get wet right before or right after he will get 'prevented'. Actually, don't tell him, but we're headed to the lake one day next week. But shhhh, it's a surprise!)


  1. Dear Jack,
    LOVE that expression on your mug!!! Sometimes I get my toof stuck on my lip and look pretty weird, but Mom says she likes it when that happens! Boy are you a lucky doggeh! Won't tell why now, but you'll find out! Don't worry about your cheerio bowl without milk heheh!
    Hugs xoxo

  2. Silly Jack - your pool doesn't have to have water in it - it can have all sorts of things in it. You an ask your certain nameless someone to fill it up with water, or ice cubes, or tennis balls... there are so many options! Maybe to make up for not filling it up with anything except air, you can ask him to put in water AND ice cubes AND tennis balls. But then again he might have something better in mind... you'll just have to wait and see!

  3. HEY JACK -

  4. Oh JAck, that is horrible since you love the water. Dont be to hard on the TG there maybe good reasons for no water, just so long as there is water in the water bowl~~Thats the most important!!


  5. Great foolface!

    That TG of yours should be hanging his head in shame, making such a fool out of a well-to-do pup such as yourself.

    No bait and no water - but its still a great place to lounge....

  6. Dear Jack, we thought the ice, ice-cream and cookies would make up for the lack of water. don't you think so too?
    besides, we can always find a puddle or a freshly dug soft earth patch to roll in and then TG would import water for you if needed.
    So relax!
    btw, you look KOOL even with that HRMMMPH expression!

  7. Careful, Jack, if you are suddenly shown a giant hole in the ground, that is not a lake unless there is water in it. Just gotta watch those TG's and what they say.

  8. Woof! Woof! Hey Jack! First of all .. you are looking good. Mmmmmmm A Giant Cheerio that's funny. Don't you worry, tall guy LOVEs you n doing you a favor. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  9. Jack
    Mom eats a bowl of Cheerios every morning...from now on she will think of you sitting in your giant bowl. We noticed you were in dry dock yesterday. We were wondering if perhaps TG needed a donation of some extra green paper to pay for the water?! Water costs lots here so we just 'assume' it was extremely expensive in the desert.

  10. Mom's the word...I would never spoil a doggies future pleasure...can I come?? pls pls

  11. Woof Jack,

    Oh My Dog!!! A pool and no water? That's crazy bark. Hopefully The Tall Guy remembers to fill it for you. Hope you two had a good and safe Memorial Day. Stay cool in this heat, it's gonna be brutal this week.

  12. you look so bored in that picture, Jack! Hope you have a fun weekend!

  13. We thought maybe TG expected you to "fill" your own pool!!!! That's what Buddy does!

    We've got to do the fleas meds application this weekend too...why is it always so messy?

  14. Jack -
    Love the Cheerios reference. Don't be too hard on TG - perhaps he will make it up to you..SOON!

  15. You have a look of discontent, my friend. Don't worry I am certain the Tall Guy will dig up the $.04 so you can have some water!

  16. Jack....I am tellin' ya...NO water is the way to go. You should have the TG come by and mist you every 5-10 minutes. We are sure that you would stay just as cool!!

    Smileys & Snuggles!

  17. Yes Jack that is certainly a WTF face. But the TG splained it and everything's cool. No worries Jack. Really...

    Bobo and Meja

  18. Jack, No water, that's really too bad & you have your feel sorry for me face on(Which is good). We think TG will eventually take pity on you & make up for his "oversight" about water in the pool.

  19. Hey, we have that exact same pool! Unfortunately, Lady ignores it. She prefers to be chauffeured to the local dog park for a swim in Lake Washington! You'd probably dig that too Jack!

  20. I was wondering about the lack of bait but didn't want to bring it up.
    Hey Jack, if the tall guy ever does come up with the hard earned 4 cents to put water in your pool, be sure and do that thing where you get out and shake water all over him. He loves that..

  21. Jack, if you don't have any water in there by tomorrow, let us know. It's raining here and we'll send a few of our clouds your way☺

  22. Oh my gosh, that's the cutest face! Augie and Ti don't even HAVE a pool, so consider yourself lucky!

  23. I GOT A POOL TOO - after I saw you lounging, I finally got my humans to go buy one. Unfortunately now since Friday it's been raining and the first day I saw it - I was very skeptical! I will keep you posted as to whether Mom fills it with water or not.

  24. Water water!!! We've heard its on the way Jack...have no fear.... Soon Jack soon....

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
