The other night the kids and I were in the backyard playing when suddenly, one of the dogs started barking uncontrollably from the dog run. We all looked, and found Charlie yapping like crazy at Piper...why you may ask? We have a five gallon bucket in the dog run to hold water for the puppies (they manage to tip over everything else) and Piper had put her chin and one front leg into the bucket and was paddling with that one leg trying to swim. It was hilarious (Charlie didn't think so..."Hey, what they heck, you are getting hair and girl cooties in the water!!!") Piper just calmly sat paddling until she had splashed out too much of the water and couldn't "swim" anymore. We filled it up, and she did it again. We laughed and laughed and she looked at us like we were crazy (well, we weren't trying to swim in a water dish). Unfortunately, she is camera shy so we haven't gotten that on video yet, but here's hoping. What a nutty mutt!
