My Swimming Adventure

Here at my lake again and ready to jump
See my new collar? compliments of Clover and Chewey =)
Now for a good shake shake shakeLooking over the fence and guess what I saw......................
A waterfall! I have never seen one before
Mom says that is one cliff I am not allowed to jump off, she
has no sense of adventure
Here I come mom!!!!
Here mom is yelling at me to get out of these weeds? Not sure why?
Then this is what mom found in my tail....oops
I guess sometimes you are to listen to your mother.
Can you see me?
Here I am!!and now on my way home.
and of course for my far far swim.

Hey Mason,
That wasn't only a far swim, it was also a very fast swim. You are like a nuclear submarine in the water.

Matilda said...

Wow, you dived! Cool!
You are brave!
I do not like water...

Chef ·˙ ۛ ♥ said...

I sure am impressed with your swimming skills, Mason. I'm so afraid of the water - I'll only go knee-deep and then run back to shore. But that's because I fell through the ice in someone's swimming pool one winter when I was young.... but anyway, you look like you were having so much fun.


happy said...

That looks fun! You can swim very well, Mason Dixie!

Bae Bae said...

I love your action shots photos.

Emma and Emmy said...

Hello Mason,

Can you give us swimming lessons? ^_^

Ruby Red Dog said...

You're a dog after my own heart. My mum doesn't like me getting all that stuff stuck in my fur either, but I don't mind because then we have to do "check" when we get home, which means lots of rubbles for me.

Huskee and Hershey said...

What a fun outing!! yes.. Sometimes we just have to listen to our moms! LOL!! :P

SGR said...

Woof! You sure having a great summer. I wish I can go swimming with you. Looking forward to hear from you soon. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Perlendreams said...

Einfach prächtig der Badespass :-)

Homer said...

Sometimes I would get foxtails when I'm out exploring amongst the bushes. And sometimes it hurts when they are being removed.


Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

Mason that looks like a fab walk - and we are very impressed with your swim! We love your swimming snort too.


Ike said...

That looked like a horrifying experience! You should warn the BTs of swimming pics!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh what a wonderful place you got to see. We love seeing you jump off the dock.. Mom watch a show on Chesapeek Bay dogs that competed jumping in the water.. One jumped 30.5 feet.. Maybe you need to enter too!!
Have a great weekend...

Big Sloppy Kisses

Oh, I hate those little green things in the fur. they get in deeper and deeper if you don't stop everything and get them out right away! Ruins all the fun. Love the pink collar!

Oh, Mason-Dixie, what a fun place!! We wish mommee would take us swimming again, but she says it is too cold and that we make her too wet. She is no fun.
