The evening was windy and much colder than the past few days. Our post dinner walk felt refreshing and invigorating, just the right temperature for a pup to get active.
Just after about 5 minutes into our walk, a light drizzle started.
Now, Mummy gets runny nose and recurrent sneezes at the drop of a hat! We thought it would be prudent for her to get her wind-cheater on before her nose realises it is cold enough to leak! So, we came back home, collected her jacket n set off again.
Off we went, happy and gay and enjoying the nightly sounds and smells when suddenly the sky burst open!
It just broke! And before you could even think of dropping a hat, it had rained 5002341 Gallons on us!
Where did the rain come from? We thought it had reached the southern hemisphere by now!
Mummy tried to hurry us home but we saw no reason for doing that. We were already soaked to the marrow of our bones and nothing could have made us any wetter.
So we just decided to find the puddles, splash around, get as muddy as ever and generally have an absolute fun time. Mummy did not have a say in this matter anymore. Besides, we had her on a leash, so she had no other option but to follow us.
She was rather worried that we would all catch a cold or something. And then there was the matter of giving us a bath at that hour of the night. It was mandatory, she said if we wanted to snuggle into bed with her.
Not that we mind. We are water dogs remember?
And though Mummy wouldn’t admit it, we suspect she had a lot of fun too!
Well, talking of water dogs, did we tell you we have successfully trained our kid brother to be one?
Till just about a month ago, he wasn’t very keen on getting wet or finding water holes on our walks.
But over the past few weeks, we convinced him that the basic rule about being a Labra-dawg (Well, he thinks he is one!) is that YOU GOTTA LOVE WATER.
Though he hasn’t learnt the part about sniffing out a water-hole and leading the way, he gladly follows us into one.
He’s smart, our little puppy boy! And look how he’s growing!
(Isn’t he just so handsome?)
(He does believe he is a yellow lab!!…Tee hee hee)
Happy Tuesday, Everypuppy. Have fun.
And make sure your Mums and Dads have a lot of fun too, even if you have to drag them by their leashes!
