Happy Labor Day

Posted on: September 6, 2009


A few times each week Ma takes me to a park not far from our home. This park has some wide open areas for me to run free for a mile. It also has a lagoon where frogs and tadpoles frolic.

Today I decided to take a swim in the lagoon.  While Ma was walking behind me I had the urge to just jump in.  Splish splash!

I could see the look on Ma’s face. She was shocked. I had never swam before. Oh sure I have stood in a kiddie pool while bobbing for hot dogs and even a big tub while getting bathed. But I’ve never done the dog-paddle.

After I did a few paddles through the scum-topped water I casually stepped out and shook off the filmy layer. Refreshed I continued my walk as Ma stood stunned.

When I got home I was immediately rushed to the tub where Ma bathed and rinsed me clean. She said that I must have slipped. Maybe it was an accident she said.  Didn’t she notice how calm and composed I was?

She doesn’t understand that it’s just the  “Lake” land terrier in me!

Have a fun Labor day weekend!

Love Autumn
