Last weekend Arrow and I went to watch Karen, Mila, and Seger at Long Beach. While Arrow didn't show (he's not quite ready, you should have seen Karen try to stack Arrow.... it was impossible) he did enjoy seeing Mila and Seger. Actually "enjoy" is an understatement... He LOVED it. The pups have to know they're related, right? I mean.... they have to.... ?
Arrow really wanted to play with Seger some more right before the show and he lay there looking at Seger through the crate, touching noses. It was too cute.
Arrow was really great at the show. I thought he'd be pulling and barking just wanting to play with everyone and anyone, but he sat and lay down right next to me while the pups performed. He was able to get a few good licks off a little 5 years old girl, but that was about it.
Afterwards we went to a friends house with a pool. Arrow's getting more curious and more courageous around deeper water and you can tell he's itching to go in, but can't quite make the leap. He loves streams... but a big blue pool weirds him out a little. He tends to get in about up to his belly then backs out or runs around the edge feverishly and half trying to jump in. I didn't have my bathing suit with me, so I just played with him at the steps and watched him run around, and then I watched him fall into the deep end and sink. Not quite like a stone, but kind of like a half-bouyant log.... so I jumped in after him and helped the little guy out. And we shook off the water and he went running right back to the shallow end and tried to get in again! No fear! My little trooper :)
And then I relized that my camera was in the back pocket of my skirt. The image of Arrow in the pool was the last image my camera took.
R.I.P. you great little point and shoot. I will miss you.
