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…
