Do NOT try to catch the ducks!
Since it was like 140,000 temperatures here yesterday, the tall guy said that we should go to the lake, so that I could play in the water. He said I have been very good riding in the car lately (meaning, I don't bark as much as I used to!), so we could go right then! Needless to say, I was a VERY GOOD PUPPY all the way up to the lake.
When we got there, there were some people fishing, so the tall guy said we would have to go to the other side of the lake so we wouldn't bother them.
I did not see any fish, BUT, when we got to the other side, I did see a bunch of ducks! Ducks, if you recall, are like birds who sit on the water. I guess it feels good on their butts! (I know it feels good on mine!)
Well, I decided that there were too many ducks on my side of the water and that some of the ducks should go over on the other side. (Actually, it was a family of ducks, but I didn't know that at the time.) So, since the tall guy had taken off my string, I decided to go out and have a talk with them.
Well for some reason, they decided to start swimming away from me, so I thought I would follow them, as I just wanted to ask them to share the lake. Well, they kept swimming and I kept swimming and they kept swimming and I kept swimming, and before I knew it, I was a little farther away from the shore than the tall guy thought I should be! (It was my first time out in the deep water and the tall guy didn't know what a good swimmer I am!). Well, I looked back and he had already thrown down his keys, his phone and the camera and was just about to come into the water to get me (he is silly like that sometimes. Needless to say, that is why there aren't any pictures of me and the ducks). So, in order to keep him from getting wet, I decided I had better come on back. The tall guy was very happy when I got back, but......
if you look carefully at the picture above, you'll notice that I have my string attached to my collar again. I guess the tall guy decided that I could still play in the water but that I didn't need to go out quite so far again. But, it was still really nice to run and splash and swim. A short while later, we headed down the mountain with the windows rolled down, so that I could dry off on the way home.
All in all, it was a very nice vacation. Maybe I will see you at the lake next time we are there!
