The boat ramp

 Someone forgot the camera yesterday when we went for a walk.  So I'll just have to describe what happened.
 Half-way through our walk, we came to a boat ramp.  Bella and I explored.  (We went back today so you could see what the ramp was like.)
We both went in for a little paddle, but fell off the ramp and were TOTALLY submerged!
I had to be pulled out, but Bella swam around the side where it was shallow.  Then, it was Wet Zoomies Time.  We ran around and around.  I dried off by rolling in the dirt and loose grass.
(There WAS a bath afterwards.)Today we didn't get in.  We're not  really submersible* scotties.

(*We may have made that word up).


  1. Oh gosh, I am learning that you have to be SO careful when venturing into water, if you are not a submersible dog (and I am not either). It's so hard to tell what's ahead, even if the water is quite clear. And you know one time, I totally misjudged a jump over a pool of water and ended up soaking wet all over. Just horrid! I feel for you guys!
    Toodle pip!

  2. Sounds to me like you are submersible but not buoyant Scotties. Who would ever think you needed a flotation device on a morning walk ? Kendra seems to have been the sensible one .

  3. Must be all that hair that pulls you down!

  4. It must have been the lamb shanks from Kendra's pawtee that made you submersible today. I am sure you girls can be buoyant.. if need be :D

    A bath is of course a must after all the rollings :D but surely worth it.

  5. Oh my goodness, hysterical, you better wear your life jackets

  6. Ooh, glad you got out of the lake safe and sound. Sorry about the bath:(

  7. Yes, we think you need life jackets too - you never can be too careful. But we bet you still had lots of fun, that is, BEFORE the baths:)

    Have a great week.

  8. You know Scotties really need to be careful around water - we're glad to hear that Bella can swim!!

  9. Glad you got out of the lake safe and sound! I am sure it was worth it since you had the wet zoomies afterwards!

  11. Dang it, how comes da hoomans furgets da camera at da BESTEST times!!!!!

  12. Now I am thinkin that you girrrls are kinda like
    TOM Scotties... (AKA TomBoys)... hehehe

    You have the grrreatest adventures.

  13. That would have come as a shock!! things like that always happen when you don't have the camera.
    Sorry I missed your Birthday Kendra :( have left you a comment :)
    Have a good week
    See Yea George xxx

  14. We are glad you made it back out of the water!! Lots of love, Holly & Mom

  15. That was so scawy!!
    I bet your momma was breathless there for a while!
    But I bet the wet zoomies made it all worthwhile!

  16. I've never seen Scotties swim so I would've had a ball watching you take your leap of faith! Too bad you didn't want to jump off the ramp today though. Maybe another time?

  17. YIKES! How cold was that water?

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  18. See what happens when SHE doesn't bring the flashy box?! Would have been funny - especially the zoomies with all the dirt n' stuff.

  19. Hey...good term "submersible Scotties". If we're waterproof, then we're not submersible. Glad that's settled!

    Aroooo! Stuart

  20. Oh dear, what a shock! You'll have to wear a rubber ring next time you go near just in case ;-) No, we're not submersible Schnauzers either - water is for DRINKING is it not?! Dex & Louis x

  21. Did you forget to do the doggie paddle?
