I'm jealous, I'd love to have your pool problem! Why not just towel your puppy off??? I'm very particular about drying my dog as best as I can, because if they stay damp and don't dry, their coats can get mildew. I am NOT making this up, lol - it happened with my dog his first summer, with all the swimming and humidity.
I know I didn't answer your crying question...
I'm saving you from the awful stench of mildew instead!
I thought it was cute the first few times it happened
, but now he can jump on furniture and is a lot bigger than before = more water everywhere :/
as far as why I don't towel him off: I have but it's just another thing I'd have to do, and I'd rather him just stay out back for a half hour or so and dry off in the sun.
I want him to learn that if he goes in the pool, he has to stay outback for a little while. But the constant crying/howling/whinging makes it difficult
