But first, I want to thank all of you who went over to my cousin Lucy's blog to say hello & welcome her to the blogging world! I knew you'd come through! My bloggy furiends are the best. And, I'd like to thank my homegirl Twix for the pawsome button she made me; check it out at the top of the sidebar!
OK, so here's what happened. Our town pool sponsors a Doggy Swim every September after the public pools have closed. I was excited when I saw the pools and the other doggies and was in a happy mood. As we made our way over to the far pool, a lady who was running the program warned us about this one dog; she said she was getting some "strange vibes" from her. Sure enough, the first doggy to approach me was that dog, and she ran up to me, took one sniff and then MAULED ME!!! My human and the other dog's human jumped in to separate us and luckily that dog hadn't broken any skin (good thing Tollers have thick double coats). Needless to say, that bitch (pun intended) and her family were booted out of there pronto. And the weirdest thing? My human realized she actually knew her owners through school! They were very apologetic and later told my human they'd been having "issues" with their dog for some time (then, why bring her to a doggy swim???!!!).
Well...once they left, I (and my Family!) calmed down and I got to enjoy the pool. I was the first one to jump in! There were all these Labs running around and none of them wanted to swim--go figure! One Lab even had a doggy life vest on...hmmmmm...methinks a lot of Lab breeders have bred out the swimming instinct in these water dogs.
One brave Lab (I left him in my wake--hee-hee!)
Here's a clip of me doin' my thing:
Tell me, have any of you been attacked for no reason by a strange dog? It's no fun! But at least we four-leggers get over it pretty quickly...I think my human is still a bit traumatized :-(
