Subject: Squirrel in pool!
Fall of '05, the liner in our AG pool somehow got a nice long rip in it, about 4 1/2-5" long. Since the swim season was almost over, we just drained it and left it like that (we got a new liner the next spring). Anywho, a squirrel got in the pool and of course couldn't get out. At the time we had some rain water and a bunch of leaves 'n junk in the bottom. Poor guy, he was scared, wet, and probably hungry. I got a long board and put it in the pool so he could climb out. It took him a little while to figure it out (with some prodding from me), but he finally did it. He hit the ground and took off like a lightning bolt! May not sound too funny, but the whole thing was really a hoot!

I dug 6 dead ones out of the pool one morning in the spring right after opening a few years ago. Didn't have the ladder in yet so they had no way to climb out. They were used to running out on the winter cover to get a drink of water. Put the ladder in and the few that jumped in did make their way to the ladder and climbed out or were rescued by one of us. Needless to say, the ladder is the first thing to go in when the cover comes off now. Though we did not have any jumping in the pool this spring either that we saw, the ones that were rescued or made their way out the year before might have warned all the others to stay away!! :-)

The Frog Log, seen here is the way to save countless of little lives. Works for squirrels, frogs, mice and any other little critters that might get in the pool.
