Dexter’s Day: The Sirens of the Sea.
I nearly gave my parents a heart attack yesterday.
But it wasn’t my fault.
Well, not ALL of it.
I was waggling along nicely on the rocks near Coral Bay
Chasing the birds and jumping the bushes,
Playing on the sand and running to Daddy.
I’d let my parents off their lead
And they were walking with Andy and Els –
When I thunked in my head that Alfie and Molly
Two of my angel dogs
Were with me and wanted me to run with them.
So I did.
Down the rocks and into the sea.
Which was okay
Until it wasn’t and got very deep
AND I LEARNED TO SWIM!
It was VERY COLD!
And I wanted to come out
But it was fun
So I didn’t – but my Mummy was shouting
And I was swimming in the big Scary Sea, far away from her
But then I found a rock
And jumped up , ran to my people
And shook and shook and shook.
I thunked that Alfie and Molly laughed
And Daddy told me that I was a good boy for swimming
Where he’d taken Alfie and Molly to swim,
and also NEVER TO DO THIS AGAIN
Without my people close to me.
I nodded, ókay”, coz it was nearly teatime
And I needed to EAT!
And get WARM!
I wasn’t naughty.
I was playing with the angels
and it made me VERY HAPPY!
Wuff and wags
