    So Pear as some of you know is a lonely goose right now, and follows me around the yard, well when I was filling up his water container thing, he fell in our pool and now won't get out. I kjow he can I've seen him do it, but today he'll swim up to me and as soon as I reach for him he swims away! Ugh!!!! How do I get him out and KEEP him out?!

    Is that a swimming pool? To get him out you´ll have to tempt him when he´s feeling peckish with his favourite food. And put a fence up.

    Yes a 12ft deep swimming pool! It doesn't have chlorine in it right now but I don't want him to get in the habit of getting in. Since it doesn't have chlorine I let him in there for a few minutes but now he needs to get out. Really sad at the same time because he's diving and flapping and zooming on the water...

    All he needs now to make his life perfect is a little gal gosling to share his pool with! ;)
