After lunch, we took the kids to the tank. They all like to play in the water. Diesel was going to get his first tank experience. I didn't know if he had gotten to play in water before he came to us. He has lots of energy and we thought it would be a good chance for him to burn some off.
He didn't know what to think about it at first. But it didn't take long for him to try it out. Guess he figured he would try out the front half.
Within seconds, he was bouncin' thru the water. He LOVED it. Next on the agenda, torment Zena...
And give Pepper some grief. I love the expression on her face! She is so done with the new pup.
Zena didn't look to happy with me either.
Then he decided to calm down and swim with Zena. He swam and swam. None of our dogs have ever swam as much as he did. I was worried he was gonna get tired and I'd have to go in after him, but he came in.
Then the smarty pants did figure eights between my legs wiping himself off!
On our way back to the house, the heifers and cows were up. It was the first time Diesel was in direct contact with the cattle. Trixie initiated him.
He went right up to her. She so kindly advised him that dogs are not welcomed in her pack. She rolled him with her nose/horn. I ran up and got between them and he was fine. Hopefully, he learned a quick lesson that cows are not his friend.
But all ended well when he found a dried cow patty to take home.
Ahh, life is good.
