Pool Party Pup

The birthday party was super fun. My aunt and uncle with their three kids didn't show up so Cayman actually got to stay for the whole party. He even went swimming himself! Well, my husband put him in gently and let him swim to me a couple times. He didn't exactly look like he was all that thrilled to be in the water, but he obviously wasn't too fearful because he kept coming back to the edge of the pool, almost looking as if he was considering jumping back in!

He spent most of the day sunning himself poolside. Spoiled dog.

We ended up giving him a bath as soon as we got home. I didn't want the chlorine sitting on his puppy skin for too long as it would dry it out. I got a cute picture of him with a little mohawk!

The rest of the night was pretty chill, we were all so tired from the excitement of the party. Cayman went to sleep in his kennel easy enough but as usual, woke us up at 5:00am. He was quiet off and on till around 6:30 and by that point I had thrown in the towel of getting anymore sleep as now our daughter was up.
