Last night me and the girls and Mama decided to take a trip up to the pond for Savvy’s Fat Camp Swimming Exercise. Dubs and I don’t need to go to Fat Camp, but we like to go to the pond and do some frog tracking, so off we go.
I should say at this point, that sometimes I get left at home because I like to take a little free form après-swimmy walk around some of the posh houses near the pond. See the pond is in the midst of a failed McMansion Development which was intended to be embellished with a series of ponds. So some of the houses are scattered around, but some of the ponds are on empty acreage and free for pups like Savvy to use as Fat Camps.
Now, this pup likes a taste of the Posh Life from time to time, so sometimes instead of getting straight back in the car I like to take a little stroll on some of those manicured lawns and maybe sit on an elegant faux marble stairway and relieve myself on some professionally manicured ornamentals.
The High Life, you know!
At any rate, this gets me left behind to share saltines with Grandma. And that is ok, there is a time for that. But last night Grandma wanted me out because she wanted to mop the floor. So Mama said she would take me, but I best behave myself.
I made a solemn vow. And I kept it. Why Mama then felt is was necessary to leash me instead of trusting me, well that I don’t know. But leash me she did…right at pond side. After she did this she continued to throw sticks for Savvy to fetch from the pond. Savvy was getting all of the fun!
After about 3 tosses I was overcome with an overwhelming desire to fetch. the. stick.
And so I did. With Mama still hanging on to the other end of the leash.
I don’t know my own strength sometimes. In short, the end result was Mama becoming airborne and sailing into the pond right behind me.
I will leave the next part of the story to Savannah to tell. See her diary entry for her version of events…

Oh!!! What did your momma say after this??!! I always have to walk with my leash on (because of all the cars, you know). Unless, that is, my pawrents take me to the park... That's a whole different thing :)
