Today’s project was to create something that floats on water.
Eloise has Toby to thank for this idea.
Pugs are not known to be swimmers and most sink when in water. Eloise avoids water in any form at all costs. She even tiptoes on damp sidewalks. Needless to say, she is not a fan of bath time and was overdue for one anyway. So, four water wings were fashioned out of balloons in an attempt to get Eloise to float. She was remarkably cooperative about wearing the balloons and even posed for a picture.
This experiment didn’t work; it probably would have required ten times as many balloons and a pug that tolerates the water a bit more than Eloise. The up side is that she’s clean and smells like baby shampoo now. She’s waiting for Toby to bring her carrots. . .
