Been Swimmin' With Katy
I'm a Jack Russell Terrier. I love to run fast, very fast. Swimming was the best fun! I was such a good swimmer that Abbey, an Australian Sheperd (duh...afraid of water??), my friend down the street, would come and get me to retrieve her ball if her Dad threw it into the water. She would run up to me, barking, turn around and start for home, looking over her shoulder to make sure I was coming. I always did. She was three times bigger than me, but didn't have my skill or courage. But she was a good friend. I loved playing with Abbey.
Over the years, I had a lot of people friends who liked to throw the ball in the lake to watch me belly-flop into the water and get it. They were fun people.
I could jump anywhere I wanted. Auntie Linda remembers when I jumped from the driveway on to the hood of her car. I could jump on the back of the sofa from the floor...didn't need the seat cushions.
Once I rode on Uncle Rick's bike. WOW! I could see everything moving by, the wind in my face. I loved it!
I got old one day, but I still liked to follow my best friend Tom around the yard as he cut our grass or shoveled mulch. And two years ago, I still had it in me to catch a mole messin' up Mom's pretty lawn and flowers. Bye-Bye mole!
