Oh my goodness did I get a surprise yesterday. MOM picked me up from Bert's place after she finished work. Now normally we go home butt this time we did not. To my surprise we were going on a little adventure.
We ended up at The Pond! WOW!! See MOM works 11 to 14 hours a day so normally we go home, she does paper type of work or studies and she takes me for a walk around the neighborhood. BUTT yesterday we met up with some friends (Bert, Miss Sophie, Wyatt) to take a stroll around the pond and down by the river. Then...
This guy caught up with us. His name is Murphy and he is 12 weeks old. Isn't he cute? Now I am going to admit something. See at my age I am not a puppy kind of dog. Oh I like them, I just don't like them jumping all over me. Butt there was just something about Murphy. We all went to the edge of The Pond. I guess a puppy needs to learn how to swim right?
Well this little pup was in luck cuz he was in the presence of Water Golden Boy himself, Bert. Murphy was going to be taught by the VERY best.
Trouble was Golden Boy was playing kissy face with his girlfriend, Miss Sophie.
So I stepped in to show Murphy the ropes or the waves as it were.
"Come on little one I'll show you about water."
"This here is water."
"Yep. Now we are going to take this slow. Just put one paw in front of the other."
"Like this Mr. Goose?"
"Just like that Murphy."
"Now come on out to me."
"But it's getting deeper."
"Don't worry, I'll be here for you.
"You're doing great Murphy! Now lets head back to the bank and see if Bert has some time to show you the finer things about water."
"Hey Goose did you notice there is a puppy over there?"
"Really Goldie Wet Locks. Are you kidding me????? Yes I know there is a puppy over there. His name is Murphy and I thought you could show him how to....."
"Is Bert going to show me 'the finer things about water'?"
"Ummmm. Well right now he is searching for rocks at the bottom of the pond."
"Come with me little one. Well go check out the water over there."
"Why does Bert look for rocks at the bottom of the pond? There are lots of rocks right here. See there's one and there's one and there's one."
"It is one of life's mysteries my new little friend."
"Now come on, I'll race you to the reeds and back."
I sure had fun with Murphy. As we walked back to the parking area we had a talk. He is a very smart for only being 12 weeks old. I mean he already knows that diving for rocks at the bottom of a pond is CRAZY. We chatted all the way back. I sure hope I get to see him again soon.
