Well I really did it today. As some of you probably know we have a small fish pond in our front yard. It has two Koi in it and I am fascinated by them especially when they are eating.
I always want to get their little pellets and sometimes if Mom throws them close to the edge I can stretch my neck out and get one or two before those fish get to them. Well I really wanted them today even though I had already been fed I felt like having a little snack.
Mom went out to feed them and decided while she was outside she would go ahead and carry our recycle bins up to the road for pickup tomorrow. Normally we all follow Mom up the driveway because she needs our protection and we're afraid she might get lost coming back to the house and then who would feed us Dad???
Well I didn't go with Mom. She thought I did because I was right behind her as she started up but I snuck back down and decided to watch the fish eat and maybe help myself to a couple of their pellets. When Mom came back down she saw me run up under a bush and she thought I had something I wasn't supposed to have and she immediately thought about the fish.
She called me to come out but I wouldn't so she had to come in and get me and I was soaking wet. I had fallen into the pond and surpringly enough I had gotten myself out. In the process of getting out I knocked the pond filter apart and rearranged all the plants and gave the fish and myself a good scare.
Mom says she hopes I have learned my lesson but just in case I haven't she says from now on when she feeds the fish we will all stand and watch them eat or go back in the house until they're finished.
Just sign me All Wet!
