I have a new one for you.
Your Black Lab manages to grab your Polaris out of the pool, Chew the hose into a million pieces. Mind you, the pool is on and running, along with the booster. You come home to water pouring out of your front yard and wonder what the heck is going on.
Price of a new Polaris - $500.00+
Price of your dog retrieving the longest piece of hose left (1.1/2 to 2 Feet) and setting it in your hand - Priceless
