Well THAT has REPURPOSE Written All Over It

[pic' for Marni! isn't he cute?]
This weekend it was time for our little pony to receive his first bath. Since it rained for 9 days straight it has been pretty muddy here in lovely ol' Virginny...so off to Target for a suitable vessel in which to wash the beast.
~
We do have a garden tub in our master bath and although he could probably jump in, he is older [7 years] and we want to spare his hips the work.
~
Hence our old standby - a blue, plastic baby pool.
~
Having lived with this pooch for the last 2 weeks one would assume Pooldad and the youngest would have a good gauge of just how big Mr. Scooby is, right? You wouldn't think so by the size of the pool they brought home. Nope.
~
Spot fit great. And she was fine, but I swear the Chessie was laughing at Dad when he tried to get him in. Chessies love the water, that is a given, but poor Scooby just looked at Dad with a face that said "Gee, dude...thanks for the new water bowl. What's with the bubbles?"
~
It was hysterical. Spot could drown in the thing and Scoob barely got his ankles wet. Yes, it was that small. [They eventually soaped him up and hosed him off - mission accomplished. Then it rained again. Argh.]
~
I stayed inside giggling at the fiasco which was "First Doggie Bath Day" and dreamed about all the things I can now use the pool for - what shall it be?
~
I finally decided it would be best utilized as a really nice [albeit shallow] container garden on our back deck. The only things I can think of that may thrive in such a tiny vessel are herbs and some flowers. So that will be fun, I suppose.
~
The best part? This wasn't even the funniest thing that happened this weekend. :D

ROFLOL :)
Well, you'll get your herb garden. Maybe it's big enough to add some leaf lettuce too. Then you can call it a "kitchen garden". :)
