Dog Days of Summer - Merci Me Merci Me has been swimming since she was 9 months old and will be turning 5 on Aug. 20th. She loves to play in the pool with her toy or anybody who wants to play with her. She knows how to push off the wall, she knows when she's in the shallow end that she can stand up and put her paws on the side of the pool. She has even stood on her back legs balancing herself while trying to figure out how to get her sunken toy off the pool floor.
