They were ripping all over the place and Vladi
headed straight out to the pond like yesterday,
unfortunately I didn't have a camera.
He was cruising as fast as he could go,
heading for the shore at a very high speed,
I didn't think he would be able to stop as he approached.
Then at the last second he slammed on the brakes and stopped.
I thought "wow that was close,..."
then all of a sudden he lept into the air
and splashed down into the pond.
I was in shock.
It was like watching a Labrador Retriever jumping
into the water after a stick.
He just launched in,
I almost fell down laughing,
then when I didn't see him come flying
back onto shore I ran over.
He was standing in the shallow water,
then he shot up on shore all wet.
He just stood there.
I ran over to him and scooped up the
little white dripping wet Vladi.
He seemed stunned.
It is only about 40 degrees and the water is cold
so I rushed him home, laughing all the way.
We tried to towel dry him but he wanted to do it himself.
I've got to catch this on "film" next time.
