Daddy's car had to go to the Car Vet today, so whilst it was being operated on I took my hoomans for a chilly stroll around Broadwater Lake.
It looks like the most pawsome swimming place, but I had to stay on my lead the whole time **sob** Dogs can't swim there cos people have big poles and string to try and catch the fishes. Are they daft or what? **muffled giggles behind paws**
As I'm gazing wistfully into the distance I suddenly spy
OMP I could hardly contain my excitement **whines excitedly at the memory** I've been trained not to chase them, but it has been ages since I last saw some and I forgot myself. It's a good job I was on the lead, I'm sure I would have humiliated myself and my hoomans by jumping in the water and swimming off after them.
There is a set route all around the lake which we followed. Which meant I was getting nearer and nearer to those pesky ducks, who just love to tease a poor pup stuck on a lead by swimming about all the time.
Going through the wooded area I really had to strain to see them though the undergrowth. How I wishes my legs were a bit longer at times like these, so I can see over the bushes!
When we finally reached the area where they all were, I then had to endure 10 minutes of re-training. You know the sort of thing, just sitting and looking at them without getting over excited. So boring but us pups must humour the hoomans sometimes.
Those 10 minutes were the toughest of my life, I felt quite pooped out when we left that area, so took some time out for a little rest on one of the many conveniently placed benches. Which of course mummy took full advantage of as a photo opportunity **resigned sigh**
Normally I don't mind to much but today I was having a really "Bad Hair Day" mummy says I look cute, but I'm not so sure..
