Top 10 Funny Images of Animals in Paddling Pools

Just for once it was rather sunny here in the UK last week, so I decided to get the paddling pool out for my little boy. (Because until I win the lottery it is the only kind of pool I can afford.) Besides, I have very fond memories as a child of playing in the garden, in the paddling pool, in nothing by my underwear. This post has come about because while I was filling up the paddling pool the dog got it and started slashing around, playing in it! I thought this was a little odd, but it seems all sorts of animals love doing the very same thing…

  1. We learn from you and you learn from us, plus we all learn from each other. Blog reading and commenting are not really a way of procrastinating, it is truly educational as well as entertaining.

  2. I love the photo of the monkey. He really does look like he is going Oooo because the water is too cold!

  3. Love the cows too! They are all great. I look at the hedge hog in the pool and think maybe he had his bubbles rinsed off in the sink so he could go into the wading pool.

  4. You just reminded me, I have GOT to get out and buy a paddle pool for our baby (and for anyone else in the family who can fit in it). I’m guessing “paddle pool” is a Britishism as I’ve never heard one called that before. I think I’m going to steal it for Florida use. We just usually go down a long blathering path when trying to describe them, something along the lines of…”well, you know, one of those little pools that babies can play in? . No, not an above-ground swimming pool. The little kind. They’re plastic or sometimes you can get the blow-up kind. You know, for babies, or pets, or whatever…..” Paddle pool. I like it.

  5. The cows have to top this me, purely ‘just because’. It’s a crazy picture. The moose is cool, or maybe it as the kids have taken over that pool. Even Mr 14 had a chuckle over these.

  6. All the animals are so cute. The dog has to be my favorite since I am a dog lover. My dogs want no part of water and when it is hot want nothing more than to sit in the air conditioning with me! It is supposed to be over 90 degrees for the next week here, so we will be enjoying coll drinks and staying inside! 🙂

  7. Where DID our summer go?! Though, to be fair, we have gotten more than our fair share of sunshine in Belfast this year. This post did nothing to convince me not to get a hedgie. Nothing.

  8. 😀 Whenever anyone says that I always think of Bod and Alberto Frog and his animal band. And the big choice of flavoured milkshake – straaaaaaaaaaawberry.

  9. It took us awhile before they liked it. We ended up throwing them in it so they’d get used to it. Now when it’s really hot we put a bag of ice in it and they to chase them around and eat them!

  10. In the paddling pool? No 🙁 It’s winter here and way to cold! We have to buy a new one each summer because my husky gets a little to interested in what they’re made of an chews on them and tries to dig through them. Luckily they’re cheap! ( the pool not the dogs! lol)

  11. U made my day again, Russell. The otter has a very innocent face which is kinda cute.
    And those cows? They are just having a spa foot massage? And the white tiger cubs just need to fight for the tiny space. How cute can animal be sometimes.

  12. I love every one of these! Those poor cows definitely need a bigger pool. I’ve never reblogged anything. I think I’ll read up on it and see how it’s done. I’m thinking it’s probably fairly simple since I’m seeing it done all the time. I mean, everybody can’t be a tech-nerd, can they??

  13. Sorry, this made me laugh out loud because in the first few lines you say you got the paddling pool out for your little boy, and above theres a picture of a monkey!

    He’s ever so cute dude, but a bit hirsute…… 😉

  14. The otter seems to be a bit disappointed that there are no fish in his pool…! 😉

  15. Reblogged this on The Lady…..and commented: For the spy, symbolic, Who can’t afford the pool in this post?!?!?!? Down right funny.

  16. Now this made me smile when I really needed it. Thanks Russell. 🙂 They are all so cute I couldn’t decide which one I liked best!

Which one did you like?
