Bear, in his short Labrador doggy existence, has never seen such a thing here at PFHQ, so he is just beside himself with the joy of wetness.
Yesterday, after a long weekend of mowing and hauling of branches, it was time for a Bear break.
So, I grabbed the retriever water toy that has been dry for waaaay too long, and we headed down to the pond.
Here is a long view of the pond. The land slopes gently upward toward PFHQ from here. We are talking very gently ... this is Florida after all.
The little dock on the right side of this view was submerged beneath two feet of water in the Hurricane summer of 2004 when PFHQ received 16 inches of rain in a couple of days.
Back then, the Pond went all LAKEY on us and rose up like a giant amoeba to swallow trees, lawn, and driveway.
It was wonderful.
It's still wonderful in a pondy sort of way.
Below, a little video of Bear doing what Labs were born to do.
