As soon as Mom got out of work, (early!!), she packed her lunch and got me and Toto and Ali and put on our kayaking collars. YES!!! We are going!!!
It was mighty cloudy, but not too cold so Mom wore her jacket and made sure Julia had one when we picked her up. Off we went! By now me and Toto know the way to the pond so we were all excited.
When we got there NO ONE was at our pond. It was a bit chilly, but we really didn't care cuz it is sooo fun. Mom and Julia decided to paddle ALL the way around the whole pond... much smaller this time cuz they let four feet of water out for some reason. We always go to the left, dunno why, but it works out cuz the sun stays out of our eyes that way.
We saw a million turtles sunning themselves on all the exposed stumps. Even MORE came out when the sun finally beat out the clouds. It was HOT then!!! We stopped for lunch at the very back end of the pond. We had to wade thru the mud to get up to the dry places to sit and eat our lunch...I mean THEIR lunch, BOL!
I was happily messing around when suddenly, I smelled something in the woods. I kept trying to sneak off and see what it was but Mom was askerdid it was a bear or a coyote or something, I think, and she wouldn't let me go there. Soo, I amused myself by chasing Toto and Ali up and down the shore, then bugged Mom and Julia for some of their lunch. I had some bologna and cheese sandwich AND a fortune cookie. I forgot Mom had Chinese last night with Susie and I LOVE fortune cookies!
After we waded back thru the mud to the kayaks, we paddled back to the beginning and then I got put in my crate cuz I went over to see if some people needed me to help them fish. I couldn't help it if I had to bark a bit...I needed to say hello to them, right???
Oh well, I was tired and it was nice and warm in the car, and besides, Ali was in the crate with me to keep me company.
Finally, Julia and Toto were done hunting critters and Mom was done loading the kayaks so we took Julia home and we came home. Would you believe Mom even let us run down in the lab pen when we got home??? TWO good things in one day!!!
