Oops I did it again
I had the most amazing experience last weekend! I live in a house where there is a pool - that's right - absolute heaven for a swimmin' dog like me. Trouble is "Moomma don't allow no doggies swimmin' round here." So close and yet so far, that cool blue beckons me on these hot days. Then HE and SHE and all their friends go plunging into the cool wetness, taunting me with their enjoyment. I lay panting in the shade, hot and miserable while they frolic in the water.
And then last week all that changed.... I met Auntie Kay and Auntie Chris.
It was Sunday, and HE and SHE left me alone at home while they went off on their bikes. Down in the basement, I was crying off and on. (Well, ok, first I enjoyed the kat-thing's food, and then I started crying.) Suddenly, the door opened so I raced up the stairs to find a very nice woman who petted me and talked nicely. She let me outside. I would later learn that this is Kay. She went out back by the pool and I joined her, taking my usual spot in the shade. It was a very, very hot day.
Next, along came another woman, also very nice to me. This was Chris. After some of that blah blah blah stuff that humans do, they both went into the pool. Arrrgh! I was so hot. And then, a miracle! Chris invited me in. At first I thought Really? but I didn't hesitate for long. In I went.
Absolutely wonderful! Of course I upheld my responsibility for protection in the water - I had to rescue Chris a couple of times, I think. (Humans are such awkward swimmers I can never tell...) She seemed to enjoy this.
We had a great time, and then I went to dry off for a bit before returning to that blue bliss. I was just dipping my paw in when I heard Kay whisper No, Willie, get out! Your parents are home!
And so they were. Kay and Chris were scolded, but not me. They think I don't know any better. I keep trying to re-live the experience but all I've been able to do is get the front paws in on the steps. And then, I am caught.
If I ever do manage to get in there again, I have a song I'm going to sing to them:
Oops I did it again
I went in the pool
Though I'm not allowed
Ooh baby, baby
Think I'm the perfect pet?
So how'd I get wet???
I'm not that innocent!
Brittany, eat your heart out... AWWWWOOOOO!
Willie the (wet and wild) Wonder Dog
P.S. Auntie Kay and Auntie Chris - I LOVE YOU!!! Lick lick, slobber slobber.
