Robert Frost once penned “good fences make good neighbors.”
It’s true. But, I know something else good fences make… good mental health! Let me explain.
Phil and I love to go over to Table Rock Lake. It’s only about 45 minutes from our home but it feels a million miles away. I love to just hang out on the water, float and do … absolutely nothing.
I’ve learned something really interesting while floating lazily on the lake. I thought all dogs knew how to swim. I really thought it was just genetically wired in them to automatically do the dog paddle.
Or, at least not when it comes to our little Shih-tzu, Lucy. We put her in the water with Phil and she totally panicked! She flailed and whined and practically pawed Phil down into the inner depths of the lake. Let’s just say, she’s not wired for water. So, she stays on top of the water with me. The girl likes to float! She will sit in a float with me for hours, totally content. So, that is what we do while at the lake. We’re two peas in a pod, Luce and I.
And, may we never fall out because, obviously, neither of us divas can dog paddle!
