Mom and Dad took me today. There were a couple of doggies playing ball with their dads so at first mommy wouldn't let me off lead. Instead, she took me to the marshy areas so I could dip my feet. Ha! My feet... I launched my whole body in there and came out looking like one of those two-toned classic cars. I was still totally white on top, but my legs and underneathy bits were black!
Mom decided that I couldn't get back in the car like that and, since one of the ball-playing doggies had left, mom decided to let me loose.
That is all I was waiting for! I bolted for the dock and ran down its length like a greyhound. I didn't so much leap when I reached the end as I just kept running. Hitting the water was a surprise... water really give way, doesn't it?
As much as my mom tries to stay in shape, she just couldn't keep up with me. I'm lucky that the other dog (a lovely German shorthaired pointer, rrrrowf) was still playing ball with her dad. He was a nice fella. After I got done being a submarine he helped me find the ramp to get back on the dock.
While mom (panting from trying to keep up) thanked him, my dad just laughed at me. Eva just looked at me and grinned. After all, she wasn't silly enough to go in the water.
