" We started our backyard remodel in April 2022. Construction is messy and so our contractor covered our pool with a plastic tarp to prevent debris. On Nextdoor, I learned about Oakley's story and the dangers of construction for pets. I have two curious and energetic dogs of my own, so my guard was up. Potty breaks became eventful as I followed my
dogs around the yard, keeping them away from large holes, power tools, and sharp materials. One morning, Kona simply walked straight into the pool, thinking the dusty tarp on top was a solid surface. The tarp immediately started sucking her down and she sank. Dressed head to toe in pajamas, I dove in after her. I untangled her from the tarp and steered us towards the edge of the pool where I could call for help. If I was not there to dive in after her, she would have become deeply tangled in the tarp and
drowned. This event happened in seconds. Not minutes, SECONDS. We must strongly consider all safety risks construction may pose on our families and do everything we can to stay safe. "
