I really scared mom yesterday. We were out for our morning walk. As we are starting on our walk, I hear ducks down on the river and go charging down there.
Most of our snow has gone except for what is down by the river. What is left at the river is huge chunks of ice. As the river and river bank melt, these chunks of ice break away from the bank and there are huge cracks between the ice chunks. In some places these cracks between the ice chunks are at least 4 feet deep.
Anyway, I go charging down the bank. Mom's hurries as fast as she can, and when she gets nearly to the bottom she starts to encounter the ice. She scans the river bank and doesn't see me. She fears I have gone into the open water and she scans the river and doesn't see me there, either. She figures if I had gone in the water, she would have heard a splash, and there is enough open water I could have swum and gotten either onto a chunk of ice or to where the shore is already exposed.
She hears something down the river bank and hurries over. As she gets closer to a larger crack in the ice chunks, she sees two paws and my head as I am trying to get out of the ice. Mom gets to me as fast as she can because of the ice, reaches down and pulls me out. We sit on the bank as mom cuddles me for a long time. She then checks me all over to make sure nothing appears broken.
Mom says we can't go down to the river until she is sure all the ice has melted now.
