As much as I love winter I’m happy to see that spring has finally arrived. How do I know? Well, the pond next door is no longer frozen and although the water’s cold, I’m going in! And I now have a buddy to join me. My Maw’s grandson, Angelo, just saw the pond for the first time and wants to play in it too!
So Maw threw a stick, or I should say, a twig in the pond and I had no problem fetching it.
Or, bringing it back.
Getting out and shaking off is really fun. What’s a little spray?Then Angelo and I tugged on the stick.
He won. Well, really I did because I get to fetch it again!
We must have done this 10 times or more! Then he found some rocks and started tossing them in.
But I swam the depths and came back with a stick from this murky water.
Angelo started walking around the pond some more and came across a leaf he was fascinated with.
So I showed him my fascination with leaves.
Then he thought he’d try fishing with a stick.
Wait! He’s not fishing, he flinging! Look out! Maw didn’t stick around to get that photo.
I went back in the water and waited for him to throw another stick. Or, for him to come in too!
I finally got out and did a back scratch. Maw says I look demented. Angelo looks a little flabbergasted too.
How’s this for a close up?
Now it looks like we’re having a stand off. I really don’t remember why we were looking like this.
Then suddenly it started raining.
In the end, Maw won. It started pouring. Yep, it’s spring!
