My First Swim, (sort of)

 Ok I really didn’t swim. I didn’t even mean to go into the water. My daddy and me did a lot of walking today, a lot.

First, in the morning we walked at least two laps around memorial park. My dad either wanted to spend a lot of quality time with me or was tired of me nagging him and being SOOO clingy. He walked me all over and then over again. We also ran in the ball field and I chased the ball. All very tiring but fun.  When we got home I was so tired all I wanted to do was nap. Oh, and eat ofcourse. Actually it was eat first then nap like a pro.

Later my dad said, “lets go to the park”, “to the other park”. So he tookme to Long Dock Park, (he says the name sounds like a Korean porn star name)…I digress. I like that park because there are a lot of other dogs that go there, lots of places to walk, the river, and a lot of smells. We walked all over that park too, man he keeps walking me a lot lately.

I met a tiny puppy only 8 weeks old, (sorry no picture. My mom wasn’t there, she’s the photographer). We also met several other dogs and saw some others that wanted nothing to do with me. We walked the dock twice, around the kyack lockers and a lot of the trails.

We also were walking along the beach for a bit. I was trying to drink the Hudson River in between the waves rolling in and I got my feet wet a little. THEN as I was walking under some low branches right along the beach one of them rubbed my back. I guess no big deal, but at the time it startled me. So I jumped and ran and found myself running into the Hudson River. I guess I wen in about belly high. It was cold but not so bad. maybe when the weather gets a little warmer I will really go swiming….or at least wading in the river.

Life Lesson: Sometime accidents or adventures or who knows what can bring you new experiences that broaden your horizons, teach you new things and “hey they aren’t so bad afterall”!
