So much for bath time! Giant Newfoundland dog Darcy is less than impressed with her paddling pool … after £ 15 bargains arrived with a diameter of only 30 cm
- Chelsea Sparks thought the pool would be good for Darcy to cool off in the summer
- Her stepfather found a £ 15 bargain online and bought it for Darcy
- Six weeks later, Ms. Sparks was shocked when the pool appeared as a tiny package
- They took photos of Darcy standing by the pool wearing his hat
A Newfoundland dog who "absolutely loves water" was disappointed after it turned out that their new "dog pool" was the size of a water bowl.
When Britain welcomed the warmer months, owner Chelsea Sparks decided that getting her dog Darcy a pool to play and cool off in the heat would be a great idea.
The 28-year-old from Shorne, Kent, Great Britain, said the two-year-old Newfoundland puppy loves water. When Mrs. Sparks' stepfather discovered a 15 pound dog pool online, he grabbed it.
Six weeks later, Ms. Sparks was shocked after receiving a tiny package in the mail and had no idea what it could be.
28-year-old Chelsea Sparks and her stepfather thought it was hysterical and posted photos of Newfoundland's dog Darcy, who was standing next to her "pool", the size of a water bowl
When she opened it, she found that it was the "dog pool" bought by her stepfather, which was actually the size of a water bowl and had an estimated diameter of 30 cm.
Attorney Ms. Sparks said: “Darcy absolutely loves water. Every time we take her to the dog park, she gets in straight away. When the weather came up, my stepfather ordered her a pool online.
"He described the pool as a" bargain, "and said we might have to wait a little longer than usual because he is from China.
"When it was delivered, we didn't know what it was because it was folded so small.
Despite the advertising that large dogs effortlessly climb in and out of the pool, Darcy was able to wear her new toy as a hat
“When we found out that it was the dog pool, we found it hysterical. We then placed the pool next to Darcy and took a picture. & # 39;
She said her stepfather saw the pool advertised on Facebook with pictures of large dogs that get in and out easily.
Both she and her stepfather thought it was funny, even though they felt cheated, and posted a picture of Darcy standing by the pool wearing a hat.
It quickly went viral and generated almost 20,000 likes, comments and shares.
Ms. Sparks added: “My stepfather said the pool was advertised on Facebook and large dogs had to get in and out.
"We think it could have been a scam, but we were so entertained that we didn't think much about it.
Ms. Sparks then ordered Darcy a family-sized pool from Amazon that was the right size for the Newfoundland
"My stepfather is not very technical, so he didn't notice. He hasn't contacted the company yet, and I'll be helping him over the next few days.
“We sent photos to our friends who all thought it was weird. Then I decided to publish it online to a group of dogs because I knew they would find it funny too.
Darcy seemed disappointed and confused when the miniature pool arrived.
“We ordered her a family-sized pool that came from Amazon Prime the next day and was the right size.
"I expected a few people online to find it funny, but I really didn't expect it to explode."
"I'm glad it put a smile on everyone's face during the pandemic."
