This is so very off topic but I know that many of us have pets. So I had to share a story of my idiotic dogs.
We have a 15'x24' oval pool and last year when we were getting ready to winterize it, we put the cover on and my large black lab decided she was going to try and walk on water. The cover wasn't anchored yet. As soon as she jumped on the cover, she had a look of pure horror on her face. It was pretty comical! So my hubby had to drag her off and haul her 90lb body over and onto the deck.
So here is another funny incidence that happened just today. I also have a Jack Russell/Beagle who is terrified of water. She can't even swim so especially when we go out on the boat, she has to wear a doggie life vest. Yeah, a funny sight to see and in fact she gets alot of attention and laughs from the other boaters - poor dog. So I'm sitting out on the patio, reading and having my morning coffee when both my dogs decide to scout out the deck. It's been closed off all season so when we opened it the dogs are probably thinking - Cool a new place to explore! Well I just happened to look up from my reading and what do I see? My Jack Russel taking a flying leap onto the solar cover! I threw down my book and ran up the stairs to the deck. My poor Jackie was acting like she was standing on ice and afraid to move with a look of like - OH NO! Mommmmm help me!!! So I had to drag the solar cover back to the deck and rescue my idiotic dog!
I just think it's so funny when our dogs, cats, birds etc lose their judgement and they have such human emotions run across their features. Have you any stories to share?
