That is what I ended up doing but I poured quickrete into some 5 gallon buckets and i am letting it harden up with the posts in it. I have the fence up- I used 4' tall snow fence and bought a dozen poles and pounded them in to the frozen geround last night. Thankfully Koko is not an aggressive perimeter tester. We do not leave her outside for long periods of time or else I am sure her german shepher curosity would get the best of her and she would get thru the fencing, but for now I can watch from the window and if noses or paws the fence i can give a command and she understands with the barrier in place.

Not having a pool cover is not an option for us since our pool is lined and the water capacity would take several days to refill if we opt to drain the pool.
Completely understood, my fence around my yard and pool is 6 foot privacy fence and there are 3 gates - they all have locks on them at all times - even in the winter time.

We had a pool when we first got Heidi and on her very first day, as she was running around our yard, she slipped and fell into the pool. She didn't know how to swim and was flapping around with straight arms, totally panicked. Luckily, she was close to the edge, so we grabbed her and pulled her to the steps.

Since then, we always supervised her when she was outside (the pool was not positioned in a way that it could be easily fenced). It was a pain, but I always worried that she would fall in. We did that for nine years until we moved last year! Our next house will not have a pool. That's great that you put a fence right away.

Ahhh..yea the temporary fence would do the trick. Would it make sense to do an underground fence system? I don't know if you would want that type of collar on the dog...

I just realize spring will be around the corner and all those **** little birds love bathing on top of the tarp...grr.
