What's That Lassie....Jasper's In The Creek???

So as some of you may have noticed, I hadn't posted in awhile - as I have had alot going on. I have just started a new job and am enjoying that immensely!!! Meeting alot of great new people, as well as learning the ropes of the business. I had some "family time" planned as well, and we had 10 great days with my parents, brother, and other family members back home last month as well.
I thought I would share a little story about our travels with you. While out relaxing at the farm, I had decided one day to take the pooch for a walk. As we headed down the 2 mile lane, I was snapping pictures of nature, and this was the last thing I saw of my dog.....gazing off into the distance, watching the ducks take off of the water....

Suddenly, he was no where to be found. As panic settled in, I frantically called out for him, hearing whimpers coming from further down the road, at the base of the creek. Now, I know you cannot understand the depth in this next photo, but it is VERY deep!!!! Soooo deep that I could not reach the soaken wet puppy that was whimpering for help. He was like Lassie, only I think he was saying "Little Jasper fell down the creek, help get me out!!" It took a few moments, which seemed like for hours, as the grass was soooo long it was hard at times to see where he was. Finally, I dug my shoes into the road, and reached deep down and managed to grab him by the edge of his collar and flail him out!!! OMG!!! I was so happy to see him. We carried on our walk down to the water, where he stayed out of the ditch with the long grass only for the first 2 minutes - what a short memory!!!!

This is him mimicking a beaver that he saw swimming in the water!!! What a goof!!

And here he is all wet and muddy from his adventures...he had the time of his life!!!

That is just like my puppy.... she still has not learned that the ground in the 'frog pond' near our house is not hard and she goes butt over head every time!!

You can tell by the smile on his face he had a great time!

Oh No... My Dog did that once when we lived in GA.. she was strolling along the high grass along the swamp and boom fell into the water.. My husband had to go in after her.. Sometimes you gotta wonder!

Such a cute dog! My cocker spaniel loves the water and chasing ducks. Great photo of your doggie chewing the log, precious!

Your puppy is SO cute! Love crocker spaniel dogs. I have 2 Tzu's and they have never been near a pond let alone water (except a bath)..I'm sure they would panic and drown. Glad Jasper is ok..and enjoying the country life.

Oh, what a cute doggie, I'm so glad you were able to get him out safely. How fast they can get into trouble!
