If Heaven Is Blue, This Is It

The ice went out at the lake this week, which is a huge relief. As the owner of a dog who loves the lake, I hate that sort of in between time. I have this terrible fear that Brutus will go running out on the ice and fall through, but we won't be able to save him. We have a canoe that we keep next to the shed that we could grab in a heart beat, but the thought of it still scares the heck out of me. Thankfully, we made it through another spring with no ice accidents.

It's hard to comprehend, but Brutus probably went swimming four or five times today. He picked up right where he left off last Fall. He remembered the same rotting log along the shore that holds the little critters he likes to go after, and the same shrub on the bank that he likes to pee on. It was like there was never a winter in between. I love it. In my head it just means that he's "home".

I was checking out the purple pool today, and I'm afraid it isn't going to make it through another summer. I'm so sad about that, because Brutus adores his big purple pool. Maybe the store will have purple again this year. Brutus is going to have a new little sister this summer to show the ropes to, so he'll have to share his pool, no matter what the color. I can't wait for all of the photo opportunities.

More updates to come on "Lily Bear" in the next few days.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
