Word soon got to West about what was going on back at her place. Interestingly, she, too, was cooling off at the beach the very moment the text from her sister-in-law buzzed through.
"My daughter came running out in the water with the phone, so I thought something was wrong," West told The Dodo. "Then she showed me the pictures. I was shocked, but thought it was amazing and hilarious. We had a very good laugh about it."
In the end, West really didn't mind the visitor being in her pool. But while armadillos are excellent swimmers, she had her sister-in-law help the armadillo get out just in case he couldn't do it on his own.
