Looking very good there, honestly...

Our English Springer Spaniel has decided the she can walk on the solar cover... and no the dog isn't related to our lord and savior, so she's "fallen" (walked) in about five times. Luckily so far either the Australian Shepard (older but still a) puppy has been there to help drag her out, the 11 year old Yellow Labrador who will bark at us and give us a look like "look what the dummy has done again!" and we help her out.. or we have noticed on our own and pull her out.

I'm about to think we might need to put a barrier up, but I don't want to. So yeah.. watch your dogs for a while, a couple of months at least... "Dummy" can swim well, but it's difficult for her to get out of the pool by pulling herself out at the deep end.... The Labrador should be an excellent swimmer but she has NO interest. I guess you can't teach old dogs new tricks... The Australian Shepherd thought the solar cover was yummy when I had workers over to do some fixes on our house, and that is how I learned you use a small heat gun to patch the LDPE Solar covers together. I used a surface mount solder rework heat gun, but now I remember the correct name for the "home hobby" version......an *embossing gun*.... but you can weld those covers together all day long with that...doesn't even look ugly if you are patient....

But the dogs and the pool so far has definitely been a part of the overall entertainment of the project at my household...

And subs come when they want in 2019. There is no scheduling anything anymore... trust me, I used up most of my vacation time this year with this issue, and the year isn't done yet...
