Hi, popping back for a quick chat. First of all I want to say thank you for your great comments, every one is a welcome addition to the blog. They're like little snippets of information which show the wider picture. I especially liked the comment from Joto on the previous post, thank you, I appreciate it.
I know you like Rocky pics, well here are three of him. Today I took him to the big pond that's more like a lake, to see if he would like a swim. I didn't expect him to relish the idea as I gave him a bath once and he didn't like that. But today was a very hot day again so I wondered if he would like to cool off.
We got to the waters edge and I half expected him to sniff at it and walk away, but he didn't. I was amazed, he went straight in and soon got out into the deep part. He showed no fear, his little legs were paddling away ten to the dozen. It's a good job I kept him on his retractable lead, or he would have gone right into the middle of it, and it is very deep there. I think it was the sight of the mummy ducks and their ducklings which were driving him on, I am sure if given half the chance he would have gone after them. It wasn't just a quick dip, the little fella swam almost half way round it, he absolutely loved it. Here he is rolling around on the lawn when we got back, to try and dry himself off.
