Bounce's Adventure

This afternoon, Walter took Bounce out for a jaunt around Rockwood Park. The ensuing story made me chuckle all afternoon.

It seems that while walking along the nature trail, Bounce discovered the pond. Now, I know that he really likes to play at the edge of the water, splashing and smacking at it, but her got a bit more than he expected this time. Walt say he we right up to the water and started to play around, sticking his nose in the water and blowing bubbles. Fun stuff, right up to when he stepped a bit too far away from the edge of the pond and ended up shoulder deep in the pond. 

After recovering from that shock, he came upon a couple of trees that had fallen and were suspended over the pond. Curiosity got the best of Bounce and he took a stroll along the tree trunk. That is until he slipped and ended up back in the pond with his front paws on the tree trunk and I sure an extremely put out look on his face. I can only imagine what would have been going through his mind. Walter says he had that "how am I going to get out of this" look. He finally made it back to shore. 

They went from there on to the dog park, where Bounce, literally bounced about for an hour or so. The comments from some of the other patrons were about his ability to bounce. Having bounced out at the dog park he was off for a treat from Hardees. 

Followed by a surprise visit to the Pet Smart for a 'BATH'. This was his very first time at the groomers, who remarked when he was picked up about his bouncing abilities. Hmmmm, wonder how we ever came up with his name.

Once home he has retreated to his crate to snooze for the rest of the day.
