So this outfit lasted all of two hours on me. Why you ask? Well now here is comes... another one of those "how do these things happen to you" stories.... So we got a new puppy. She's precious, she's tiny, and for the first hour she scared the hell out of our 1.5 year old basset hound. So we're outside in the backyard, and Hanna (that's the puppy's name) is following Macy around and Macy is literally running away from her. Well my mom and I go inside and are standing at the kitchen window watching my dad try to walk between the edge of the pool and Hanna. And I'm laughing and saying to my mom "Remember that time Sweetie was chasing Bo around the pool (those were our two bassets we had years ago) and Bo clipped that corner too close and fell in the pool?" She laughs... and then...
Macy cuts the EXACT SAME CORNER too close and in slow mo I see her falling into the pool. I start yelling NO NO NO! and running down the stairs and out to the backyard and my mom is right behind me. Ok so first, this wouldn't have been nearly as big of a deal if it weren't for the fact that the pool has been mostly drained so they can do work on it, which means she was about six feet below the rim of the pool, in the deep end, in extremely cold water. So by the time we get out there my dad has already gone in the pool after her. Now we have the dog and my dad in the pool. Well my dad is trying to push Macy along and swim at the same time, and it's not really working. It's at this point that my mom starts to freak out.
Mom: "Smokey, are you ok?"
Mom: "JENNIFER GET IN THE POOL, YOUR DADDY'S GOING TO DROWN!"
So then I get in and sort of inch myself in to get when I can reach the dog and get her out and then help my dad. So we get everyone out of the pool and my dad looks at my mom and says "Cindy, why would I drown? There's only four feet of water in that pool." And as for the puppy... she was just trotting around the the backyard as if nothing was happening.
So yeah... then I had to take this off because it was half soaked in dirty pool water.
