OK my beautiful friends I promised to show you my adventure I had yesterday. I went with Bert and his Vickie and my momma to Gooses Rock. And you will never guess what I did. Take a look.
That's right, I can swim!! No splash or panic at all. You all know that my pal Bert is also know as The Giant Golden Beaver, well just like Batman has Robin, The Giant Golden Beaver has The Otter, that's me. And now a few words from my momma.
Almost a year ago I flew to Atlanta to find my joy-Buddy. And he is just that, My Joy. I knew the life I lead and enjoy involves the outdoors. Which means hiking, camping, backpacking and adventures. Apart of that involves water, lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. I had no idea if Bud would like water or even if he could swim. Turned out his first week with me we went on a walk with his pal Bert to The Pond. Bert of course just leaps head first into the water and Buddy followed.... and SANK. I thought I was going to lose him. After that Buddy was cautious about water. But seeing how much Bert enjoyed it he kept trying. There were times that all you saw was water splashing everywhere and there were even times when I had to run into the water to grab him for fear he was drowning. Even after I bought him a life jacket there was panic in his attempt to swim. But still he tried. And now, now I have a swimmer. I have to give credit where credit is do and that is to his best pal Bert. Bert really showed him the way. I know it might sound silly but Bert really did help, when Bud would get out in deep water Bert would let Buddy put his paws on Bert's back and Bert would help him back to the shallow part only to do it over and over again. And now with a lot of love, help from a friend and a never say die attitude, Buddy is a graceful, smooth and confident swimmer. It's even hard to get him to come out of the water. And like Bud said like Batman has Robin, The Golden Beaver now has The Otter.
