As most of y'all know by now, I luvs me my swimmin pool. Which are kinda unusual for a terrierist, lots of my westie and scottie buddies hate da water. But not me, I luvs it. Which are kind of a speshul deal for me and my momma. See, she used to be a competitive swimmer back before she got to short for it. Well, more like everybody else kept growin. And I mean, wakin up at 4 in da mornin for early mornin swim practice and then practicin again after school kinda swimmer. Her skin had a permanent chlorine smell to it.
So when she discovered I luved da pool (which I showed her when I wuz just a teeny pup by jumpin in repeatedly in November, BOL), she wuz really happy. Cuz she luvs da pool and goes swimmin everyday in da summer. It are a fun thing we gets to do together.
We go on walks everyday too, but dey are gettin tuffer and tuffer for me since I are gettin close to 13 and has arthur-eye-tis. And terrieriest stubbornness too.
But ya wouldn't know any of dat by da way I plays pool ball, my own speshul game. I's never been big on tug, I likes fetch, but I LUVS boucin dem plastic play balls in da pool. Everyday I gets so eggcited when momma gets on her bikini.
I don't play quite as long as I used too, but I still luvs it. And momma makes sure I gets to play everyday we can. Dere's been times we couldn't play - when we lived in Lost Angelus where dere wuz no pool, when we lived in Bawston, or when we lived in Austin (where dere wuz a pool but no dogs wuz allowed.) But now I gets to play all da time.
Sometimes I just like floatin round da pool too.
Dis year, for da first time ever, I are actually lettin momma share my pool float. When I are tired of playin, but still wants to float, she'll float wif me.
Me and my momma is best pals. We's been everywhere together, all da way from high school to college and law schools - both coasts and lotsa places in between. But playin in da pool are one of our speshul moments together.
