Maizey had her first real swim in the lake. Since I don't believe in the "throw the baby in the deep end of the pool" school of thought and since she has never got into deep water like that before, we let her take it slow. At first she wasn't so sure.
"Are you sure this is going to be fun crazymomlady?"
But since she really does love water and she'll do anything for food we gradually got into the deeper water.
"Mmmmm. . .Cheerios!"
Meeka however does not think dogs should go in water deeper than their ankles, no matter what you try to bribe them with.
"Uggg dirty lake water! This is soooo not worth a measly cheerio!"
So she spent her time being the sunbathing beauty on the beach and generally thinking Maizey and I were insane.
"I'm too beautiful to get wet!"
It was a beautiful evening and the lake was gorgeous, and not even too cold.
"Why go in that yucky water when there are so many good sniffs out here?"
Eventually after Maizey had waded around as deep as she could go and still touch the bottom I carried her out to the deeper water.
She seemed a little nervous, but being such a water lover soon got the hang of it and took off on her own. I was like proud momma watching her baby swim for the first time! Pathetic I know, but I can be such a sap!
Of course Maizey being Maizey as soon as the life jacket came off headed straight into the deepest sand she could find for a good roll in the dirt to dry off.
"Aaahhh dirt! Princessface looooves dirt!"
It was a wonderful day surrounded by beauty and being with mehusbandy and my girls.
"Thanks for taking us to the lake crazymomlady and crazymoneybagsdad!"
