And that they DID! A friend of mine had bought this pool for her and her friends to hang out in .. in her backyard. It's a "family size" pool...LOL. Well when she decided her lawn had had enough I was the lucky one to get it! Figured it would last a LITTLE while with the doodles. 24 hours is about how long it survived. Rosco and Thule decided to kill it by digging a hole in the bottom. After I patched it up with duct tape...they returned to the scab and redug. No appreciation for nice gifts from Mom.
