Splashing about!

Hi Ho Woofers!

Daisy & Holly back again!

It started out looking a bit gloomy today, you know, all clouds and no sun shine.

We went out with Old Two Legs for our walk along The Sea Wall and Holly suddenly stopped and asked, 'Can there be two of me?' OTL started on about a parallel universe and a doppelgänger, which we didn't understand at all. 'Well' said Holly, 'It's just that I can sniff me here and we have only just arrived, so how can I be here before I got here, if you know what I mean?'

OTL laughed and said, 'Don't you remember, that's where you had a pee yesterday!'

Here, I can sniff Me!!!
Oh yes says Holly, I'd forgotten that wee!

 All of a sudden we were overtaken by a young Staffy, all of four months old, 'Hello Ladies' he said, 'My name is Diesel and I'm having a super time!'

This is a Super Walk!
We had a little chase and a sniff before he got called away by his owners and we went back to hunting Rabbits!

We went with OTL to the carriers after lunch and then off to the New Park again. Now, the last time we were here, OTL led us away from the swimming hole, well, I was not going to have that this time! Off I went, well ahead of OTL and Holly and before long I landed at The Swimming Hole!

Holly arrived a little later, then OTL. By then, Holly and me were having a bit of a paddle.

Don't go too far, it gets deep out there!

OTL got the ball out and tossed it into the water for us to get, well me really 'cos Holly doesn't do swimming or getting any deeper than her knees!

Well, I still think you are Potty!
I was getting all brave and even had my back paws off the bottom and swimming on my front paws!

Look! Back legs up!
I was getting all big and brave, I was even rushing into the water and making a big splash as I was chasing the ball when OTL tossed it into the water!

What I didn't see was the two big dogs that wanted to play with my ball, there I was waiting for the wind to blow the ball back towards me when there was an almighty great splash and the ball and me disappeared in the foam!

What the..............................!
They were taking turns to jump off the bridge to get the ball that OTL threw for them and all he would say was ....'Look! That's how to do it!'

As Holly said, 'If he wants to make a splash, he can jump in himself!'

After a while the other dogs went off. It was just after OTL put the wet ball into his pocket and told the two dogs that it had 'Gone!'

Aw! I know you got it!
I had a good time running into the water and swimming out to get the ball but I did keep some paws on the bottom!

Got It!!
Then I'd bring it back and put it down for OTL to throw again!

Throw it again!
There was one time when he threw it out and as normal, it was too far for me, when this old Labrador paddled in and said 'I'll get it for you youngster!', I didn't have the heart to say that it would come back to me as the wind blew!

I'll get it for you!
OTL took us for a walk through the grass and threw the ball for me to chase, just to try to get me dried off, but it didn't work, I was still all damp by the time we got to the car park. We think it must be something to do with the rain that fell on us as we ran back to the car!

Back home for a good rub down with our towel and  then a chance to mug OTL for some of his dinner.

Now we are about to settle down to a cuddle and a good chew of our Chicken and Rice Chew!

Bye bye for now!


Daisy & Holly
