I don't live near any clean bodies of water and Charlie LOVES to swim. So I'm considering buying a pool, he's outgrown the baby pool. I know, I know he's spoiled...lol. I like to swim too. : Before I make a big purchase I want to make sure what I get will last. I can't afford an inground pool so it has to be above ground. Does anyone have suggestions on the type of pool I should go with? Kayak Pools has a demo site going on right now where you can buy one of theirs and agree to show it during one season and get a discount. I can't find anything out about the durability when it comes to dogs though.
