So, yesterday, when the rusty pups were finally let out,
they ran straight to the pond and chased the Wood Ducks away with great bravado.
But to my surprise they stayed up at the pond.
There was obviously still something going on up there.
I worried that a duck was left behind and hurt perhaps.
Then I saw that familiar brown lump on the bank.
The rusty pups were thrilled!
It took all that doggy training to stop them diving in with him.
His favourite sunbathing spot is right in front of those small spruce trees.
He has worn a muddy path into the pond just there.
When we're at the pond he likes to swim back and forth in front of us.
At times he whacks the water with his mighty tail and dives beneath the surface.
Then the dogs run back and forth wondering where he will come up again.
Love the water reflections here.
