So...that leaves water sports! I was very excited about SUMMER arriving because I heard from my good pal, Ansel III, when we were back at North Central together, that swimming, dock diving, boating, and platform jumping were a blast! I came to understand however, that this opinion was formulated by a full-lab-that floats....not a half-lab-half golden-that sinks...namely me! SWMBO and TBG have had me out to the lake a few times, and it wasn't hard to get me to go in the water. Like I said, I am game for anything and couldn't wait for SUMMER games! But, we all came to realize very quickly that I am not a strong swimmer. In fact, I pretty much sink from the neck down. That's not to say that I don't enjoy myself, because I do. Land or lake, it makes no difference to me when that beautiful, yellow tennis ball goes "whoosh" by my floppy ears...but I digress.
Off to a certain pet store that will remain nameless...to buy me a water vest! While we were there, I got to check out the kittens that were up for adoption. How lucky I and all my other PITs are to know that we will have not just one, but two "forever" homes in our lifetimes. Here I am checking out some little furry guys who need a forever home for themselves.
After lunch and a stop at the b-i-g grocery store in Manhattan, we headed home. I got myself ready for a trip to the lake to try out my new water vest. I was so excited!
