So um. I think I'll exit that topic gracefully.
On to the important stuff: SWIMMING!!!!
We went back to the park today (being dogs full of vim and vigor, Abby and I are much in need of daily physical activity, and it certainly doesn't hurt Mom and Dad to
I instructed my assistant that there was no need to take pictures of the walk, as pictures of our walk to the park can be found here and here if you have short-term memory loss. Instead, I felt that she should focus on the whole swimming thing.
We got to the park and headed to the pond. Here we are, waiting for Dad to throw the ball!
Alrighty! Let's get this show on the road!
Note how I have dashed right in, while Abby is wait for me to get the ball. Did I mention that she's still just a wader?
Throw it again, Dad!
See how Abby stays in the shallows while I SWIM out to the ball?
Got it again! This swimming stuff is fun. Why didn't Mom and Dad let me do this sooner?!?
Heh. See how my little mutant puppy sister has to wait for me to bring the ball back because she hasn't figured out this swimming thing yet?
She wants the ball, she just hasn't quite made the 'leap of faith' yet.
But she's getting close. I think that a few more days of peer pressure and she'll be right there with me!
But for the moment, I rule the water!
Heehee. This is SO MUCH FUN!!!!
While we were at the park, we met another goldendoodle.
His name is Astro and he hasn't quite figured out the swimming thing, but he was interested.
And yes, he is a goldendoodle, despite his black color - Mom and Dad have met Astro's biological mother - he comes from very handsome parentage!
So it was a most excellent day, and I haven't fired Mom. Yet.
I can't wait to go back tomorrow!!!!
