With a pool in the yard, it was just a matter of time. Guess who took the first swim and now chants “last one in is a rotten egg?”
Once our fencing is finally installed, we will have regular access to the back yard, but not the swimming pool area. Until that time, Hu-Dad closely supervises us to prevent any unexpected swimming. That plan worked great until Sunday when someone took a running leap and dove in.
Miss Cheesewhiz didn’t stick a toe in—she leapt through the air and made a dive so spectacular, Olympians would be proud. She came up paddling, headed for the steps and climbed out. When Hu-Dad bent over to make sure she was okay, she shook and shared the cold pool water with him. His appreciation was something to behold.
P.S. – During the photography session for today’s post, Hu-Dad warned her not to repeat the dive.

Requiem for a Rabbit
May 21, 2023
A poor bunny made a bad decision, so I wanted to pay my respects with a requiem for a rabbit. My dogs plotted their own event.

Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
