Pool People

Me and MelT

Okay, okay already! I admit I was wrong about the pool. It is the best thing ever! And I’m not the only one to think so. Ever since I got my pool, people have been beating a path to it. They all want to go swimming with me. Of course, I swim with MelT the most since she lives here. That’s why I started this post with a photo of the two of us in the water. Normally, I don’t post photos of Melt for ethical reasons, but I’m making an exception in this case.

They’re Back!


Acting aloof

Melly and Coral are FINALLY back from Brazil! I know I should be happy, but I was a little mad too. How could they go off and leave me just to see wild capybaras? Am I not better than any wild capy? Do they not love me more? And the whole time they were gone, no one went swimming with me! Sure, my Rick kept me company in the pool but not for very long and he only leans over the side, he never comes in the water. Continue reading “They’re Back!” »
