Love, Huck (part 3)

oh, Hi Grandma! it's your grandpup, Huck!
i have a little secret to share with you. mom says I can trust you with this sort of thing...
well, when I was younger I used to be afraid of the water!
i mean..it's wet. and cold. 
and there are no hotdogs in there --so really, what's the point?
but now I'm all grown up! {mommy says I'm 8 months old!} and I'm afraid of NUTTIN!
i love to swim!
i told mommy to take a few pictures for proof of my bravery.
so maybe, when you come visit me, you can throw hot dogs in the water..
and I'll go swim to them and catch them and eat them and love you.
while swimming I found a toy boat.
mommy threw the boat to me and I caught it in my mouth!
Because I'm brave.
{see, I use to be afraid to catch things and would run when mom tossed them to me}
but not anymore! I'm 8 months old! And fear NUTTIN!
but then...something terrible happened.
dad thought since I have been so brave lately that I might want to go for a boat ride.
well, he put me in the boat.
i may have been a little afraid...just a smudge though.
a very, very tiny bit of afraid.
like one bite of a hotdog kind of tiny.
when daddy took me out of the boat I ran inside and covered my face...
not my proudest moment.
but you know what would make me feel a lot better??
....
a hotdog.
{i like the kind that have bits of cheese in them best}

Love, 
Huck

no hotdogs?! oh the nerve. the nerve!
we took sherman canoeing for the first time last summer as a little puppy. we thought he would be scared of the water. boy were we wrong. this year he will be in our canoe again ... all 95lbs of him. i'll let you know how that goes.

This is precious! I wrote a post from our puppy's point of view once, but I love the letter form! I just may have to steal it in the future :-)

Reading your posts, especially the ones about Huck, makes me believe we would be the very best of friends in real life.

And I mean that in a complimentary way, not in a now-I'm-going-to-stalk-you way.

:-)

Hi Huck! I think we would be awesome friends. We look exactly alike. Except.... I've never tried a hotdog in my whole life (GASP). You are one spoiled pup. Maybe my mom will give me one soon.

Love, McCoy

haha I love him! One of my dogs is petrified of water. She doesn't even like to go outside if it is raining. Looks like she's going to LOVE Seattle ;)

Love love love that pup! Maybe he can come teach Floyd how to swim! If Floyd only knew about hotdogs...he would probably be just as obsessed as your boy! Id say he deserves some for doing all that swimmin!
