At the Lake with my Buddy

I give her full credit for my stamina and health Look forward to starting my day with our daily gait Both of us are outdoorsy girls Wherever we go, we are enthusiastic voyagers The lake calls us through its blue waters We walk on its levee witnessing many marvels Fresh blowing winds give us goosebumps Brings delight, a beautiful sight of a few swimming honkers We spot a great blue heron standing tall like a statue She watches it carefully with a quite curious attitude Some enthusiastic fishermen are using their skills Moving their boats in the lake finding daily catches of fish She loves to run free on levee’s wide path Sniffing scents of lost hidden balls in rock walls We cross paths with a few dog ramblers I put her on leash again to avoid complicating matters Cool waters of lake attract her the greatest She finds a stick to direct me to play a game of fetch Plunging into water to bring back the stick Tireless game she adores to play without getting sick Geese and ducks watch her from swaying far away They don’t dare to disturb this entertaining play After quite a few rounds of throw and fetch, she is satisfied We decide to turn around to go home with content mind With drenched fur, panting body and wagging tail The duo starts walking back to complete the day’s tread

what a wonderful day with a good dog like that. I would never be able to do this with my dog. He is incorrigible!
