A few days ago I went on a walk with my buddy Bert and Miss Sophie.
That's him right there. The Golden Boy himself.
You might be asking yourself, "Golden Boy Bert was mischievous?" Yes Friends, this Search and Rescue, Therapy, all around goody goody dog has a mischief side. On this one I agree with my MOM and Miss Vickie.
Looks innocent enough right? Butt what you may not know is he is asking permission to jump into the river! I AM NOT KIDDING.
He then puts his toes in, hoping to get the go ahead to slash in.
And when no one would say "It's OK Bert, go ahead and take a dip." He just turned and submerged himself in the ICY waters.
Even Miss Sophie, as much as she LOVES Bert, stays on the snowy bank. Butt of course she is ready to give him smooches when he comes back up.
Can you see the icicles hanging off his furs?! And he is smilin' about this. Or maybe that smile on his face is just frozen there. Right after this photo was taken he jumped right back in again!
He called me over to join him butt I still have a few more brain cells than my Golden Boy buddy. Oh sure I dipped my toes to get a drink, but jump in???? He has to be crazy. If that isn't mischief enough when he comes up out of the icy water he runs over to my MOM and shakes. MOM says that is most defiantly mischief. Butt it does not end there friends. After he shakes off on my MOM he does this....
He rolls and rolls in the snow and gets his furs all iced up. He says it's called "freeze-dried". If you ask me I think the icy water has frozen more than a few brain cells.
