Brice is a stinky dog

Here is the story on why Brice is a stinky pup. (The camera battery was low so there are not a lot of pictures. )

When Dad came home from work on Monday, he asked the majic question "Do you want to go to the dog park?" Of course we did. We'd go to the park several times a day if we could. The park choice of the day was Bryant Lake Dog Park. The grand opening of this park last summer was the first time that Brice had ever been to a dog park.

After the initial meet & greet at the gate, we went down the trail. While Dad and I ran a few things back to the trash, Momma and Brice continued down the path.

After the park, Momma suggested taking us over to a different part of the park where we could dip our feety-feet in the lake to cool off.

Dad took me on the boat landing and Momma and Brice went out on the dock that was next to the boat landing. I was dipping my feety-feet and sent a silent message for Brice to join me.

(Stormy, Dave or Zim - cover Ammy's eyes!!)

Are you ready?????

Then this happened!!!

Instead of going back to shore and walking over to us, Brice decided the shortest path was a straight line. Unfortunately, he didn't realize that the water was deeper there. He sunk like a rock and was totally underwater. (Momma said it was like watching an accident in slow motion)

We didn't know if Brice could swim. Actually, we don't know if Brice knew if he could swim but he did figure it out and swam to shore. (Don't worry, Momma or Dad would have jumped in to save him if needed.)

Contemplating doing it again

Meanwhile I was still fluffy and dry

Because it was late when we got home and it rained yesterday, the boy is still stinky but he has a bath scheduled for this morning.

Woof ya later,

P.S. Some of you guessed correctly. Brice was doing his "Ammy ears" from A04. He thinks her ears are bewootiful.

P.S.S. Do you think Mr. Stick had anything to do with this?

Too funny, Scampi did that once, never again, he fell off of a dock and just sank, Mom had to rescue him. At least Brice is like me and can swim! That does look like fun!

Wherever something bad happens to a dog, Mr. Stick is certain to be nearby. We didn't see him, but I am positive he is responsible.
Last you saw him, you said he was headed for Ioway. Could have easily turned right around to torment you another day.

What can we do?

Bricey -

One advantage of being white is that we can sneak up on others. After you peed on me, I have been contemplating my revenge. Bet you didn't see it coming, huh?

Ransom said...

Undoubtably, Mr. Stick IS somehow responsible! Poor Brice...your people took PICTURES instead of fishing you out? They are as bad as my people!!!

(Swimming IS rather fun, though...isn't it?!!!)

GoldenSamantha said...

That's a pretty funny story. Of course, we're glad Brice is okay, but it's still funny. Steve almost did that when we were at the marina a few weeks ago.
