The Princess and Her Bodyguard

The sky looked like rain on Saturday so we just had a quick trip to nearby Lake Ann. It was quite an adventure.

We just need to follow this path to get to the lake

Oh No!! The path is disappearing. How will we find the way?

Don't worry Eva, I'll take care of you!

Careful!! I hear something approaching.

Suddenly, a stranger was upon us!

The intruder growled "Get out of my way! She's pretty! And I'm going to steal her away with me!"

Brice boldly shouted at the intruder "Take your grubby paws off her! She's my sister and a Princess!!" Faced with such a powerful opponent, the stranger tucked tail and ran.

Princess Eva batted her eyelashes and sighed "You're my hero"

Soon we found ourselves on the shores of Lake Ann.

Concerned about the possibilities of sea monsters, they approached the water together.

I've checked and there is nothing here other than a few fish.

It's cold on my little feety feet. But it feels good.

As Princess, I hold naming rights over all of the lakes and oceans in Minnesnowta. I'd like to name this "Bricey Ocean" in honor of your bravery but we've used that when we renamed Lake Calhoun.

In respect for our heritage, I rename this body of water "The Tervuren Sea".

Since we knew that Momma was out hunting for some bones for us, we made our way back through the forest and returned home.

Note from Dad: The GSD just wanted to play but since he was running loose and Brice was leashed, there is potential for aggression to develop. As soon as the dominance behaviors started, we stopped the interaction and went on our way.

Bricey Boy - you may earn our respect yet with taking on such large and ferocious intruders. Of course, here, it is Natasha who is the most fearsome, but think we have already impugned our boys enough.

Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Wooo Brice! you did an awesome job of protecting your Princess!
Looks like a fun place for a dip!
-Kira the BeaWootiful and Scampi too!

The Army of Four said...

Oh, Brice! You're my hero, too! You're so brave to protect Eva! And Eva - you are SO sweet to want to name the ocean after him!!! The Tervuren Sea has a nice ring to it!
Sigh. What a wonderful story! And I just LOVE the pictures - especially the third one down!

Great name for the new body of water 0 sounds perfect. Brice, you are such a wonderful brother saving your dear sweet sister. Hope you enjoyed those bones when you got home. Did you drop some cookies along the path to find your way back?

Woos, the OP Pack

What a great job, Brice! Maybe you should go to Australia and teach Huffle's new bodyguard how it's done.
