Monday with Melvin. Goose patrol.

Close to our house, some man-made a lake. Around the lake is a path and She really loves  taking me for walks around the lake the man-made. I mean, it’s ok.  It can get a little hotsy on my paws so sometimes I walk on the grass next to the path which can be challenging since one side is a steep hill going down and the other side is a steep hill going up. I usually go to the up-side cause I’m a positive minded dog (but also because at the bottom of the other side is water and me no likey the wet stuff).  So I strut along the lake with Her.  At some point I must take a break from my walking to yield my mighty warrior alter-ego and lunge toward the geese that swim in the lake the man-made.  I doubt that lake creator wanted the geese there, I mean they are a noisy bunch of squawkers and they poop on every surface around the lake including the path and I try to roll in the poop and wait…the man who made the lake is genius.  Anyway, back to the part where I fake full lunge toward the geese in-the-water-that-I-would-never-in-one-million-years-go-into and they scram swim in fear to other side of the lake. Until of course I get to that side and remind them who the boss is (again).

  1. What do you mean – you don’t like water? You’re supposed to love the stuff. Careful how often you walk on the sloping bank in one direction, you might find one side of you develops shorter legs than the other! 🙂

  2. Melvin, you and Mazzie are 2 peas in a pod …. brave, fierce and unrelenting hunters on land, but all bets are off once a body of water comes into the picture. Be careful with the geese Melvin – while they are generally pretty placid and mind their own business, Mazzie once got to close to one and he charged us both, full on. Who knew that a bird could be so terrifying?
