Ouch! Yes, you definitely have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. And I agree that it is too easy to take things for granted. Thank you for the reminder to appreciate all that we have.

I just saw this Kara! OMG!!! Two horrible scares in one day! I am just so glad that both Gucci and your son are ok. That car looks pretty bad!

Gucci fell in the pool on Tuesday morning, first time ever! She will be 6 in January and I am posting this for those who have pools and *think* their dog is trained to stay away (like me) I think what happened was her top knot fell out during the night and when my husband took her out to pee at 6:30, she just couldn't see and fell in the pool. He was not outside when it happened but we generally wait around at the door and sometimes start coffee or tea in the kitchen (we let her out the kitchen sliding door) and he saw the pool waves and ran out there and got her out.

When he woke me up by telling me she fell in the pool, my heart dropped and I was in a total adrenaline fear state until I realized she was okay, but even then, I was rattled...

NOt 30 minutes later, my son drives his car into a tree and totals it on his way to school What an awful, awful day Tuesday was. (he is okay, apparently the power steering quit working or the car cut off, we aren't sure but he said the steering wheel locked completely up and he couldn't move it, shifting into 2nd gear and accelerating during a turn...manual tranny)

But I guess back to my original scare, I never in a million years thought she'd fall in, she would cautiously sniff at the pool, but stay a foot or so back and stretch in to sniff the pool, so just becasue you have a grown up dog, that's not a guarantee of anything.

I'm just grateful she's okay and am looking forward to closing the pool this weekend.

Kara I'm glad your son is okay. I'm also glad your husband noticed the ripples in the pool . Does Gucci ever swim during the summer? I mean do you know if she know how to swim? I bet dealing with a wet dog first thing in the morning wasn't fun either. Glad your fur and human kids are okay.

Thankfully our pool is gated and locked but it does make me wonder if I should have a life vest on Nina on vacation by the river. I don't anticipate putting her in the water.

I always have a life vest for Gucci when we are at the ocean, lake, boating, etc. I guess its a safety precaution, but she does get pretty close when she's sniffing the water, she's cute it in if anything!
