Camera-Critters #106



(c) Misty DawnS

Miss Maggie May doesn't swim. In fact, when she decides to wade in the water, she's very cautious. I know that she COULD swim, but she just chooses not to. Tag, on the other hand, LOVES to swim. When it comes to swimming, Molly could take it or leave it. When either of the other two are swimming (this generally involves Tag going to get a stick or toy that Daddy threw for him), Maggie May will stand on the shore and just stare at them like, "You guys are completely nuts!" It always makes me laugh.

Well, I was quite surprised the other day when I walked back to our pond with Molly and Maggie. I was looking around (had my camera) and all of a sudden, I heard a splash. I turned to see that Maggie had just decided to jump in the pond. No, she didn't go deep enough where she would actually have to swim, but she DID go in up to her neck, which was quite surprising.

It was so surprising that I wish I would have had a security camera set up to record the whole thing, because when I told Hubs about it, he was very doubtful. I asked, "You thinking I'm exaggerating?" He said, "No, I just know Maggie."

Just like a woman to change her mind about something she didn't care to do before - good for you Maggie.
I hope you never change the photo in your header - one of the highlights of my day every Saturday.

You still have this photo with Maggie's wet coat as a proof. She is very cute and I can read on her face expression that she is waiting for a reward for being so brave. Some dogs are afraid of water, it may be the case here too.
