Spring has sprung in the mountains, so I get a lot of time to play in the pond near our house. Sometimes I have dog friends to play with. Sometimes it’s just me.
Kristina won’t splash in the pond with me – no matter how hard I try to get her to join in the fun – so I have to look elsewhere for playmates.
Today, I made a new friend.
This duck swam right over to me and said hello. I let her play in my pond. I walked along the edge of the water and kept her company while she nipped at grass along the shore.
She asked me to swim to the other side with her, but the water is over my head. And I don’t go in water over my head. I like my paws on the ground – always. She didn’t mind. I think she was just happy to have me to talk to.
Her name is Daisy. Every day I’m going back to the pond to see if she’s there.
I think she likes me!
