vexing the lake chauncy shores

hello every bloggie!

Would you believe it? I found a new swimming hole- Lake Chauncy. WEll I can't take full credit. Tula found it and told me about it. What's really great is it is tucked away behind the State Mental Health Hospital and new juvenile prison so most of the humans are behind fences, not us dogs. That's strange. Yep the land was developed as a trail system- the Charm Bracelet trails. I love MA because trails are developed just about anywhere. You can trip and fall into a trail.

Well, in light of the recent great white shark sightings on Cape Cod, I decided to take a dip and show off my great white imitations.
cruising for seals... dah dum
dah dumm
dah dum dah dum
dah dum dah dah dah daaaahhh!
Keep all women and children away from the shore! Okay. I think I scared away anyone near the water. Maybe I'll make the news too.


  1. Norwood I can't believe you swim!!! Is that what a great white looks like?? I think you have a bit more fur than a great white!!!



  2. Norwood, you would have scared me pretty good. Great job!

    licks and sniffs, Sasha

  3. Hiya Norwood! I didn't hear about the great white shark sightings but I really dig your technique in scarin' them off. Is that the theme song from "Jaws" you were singing? Very cool whatever it was. I would love to trip on one of your MA trails. Looks like a great swimmin' hole too. And 2 leggers behind fences instead of dogs! Must be heaven is all I can say.
    Better get all the swimmin' in you can, winter's on it's way!

  4. What a beautiful swimming hole, Norwood! We sure hope those Great Whites are gone! Stay cautious!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. I think it's pretty impressive that you can swim & sing the jaws theme song at the same time Norwood. You sure are a lucky dog to have all these cool lakes nearby...and what a swimmer you are...michael phelps...watch out!
    your pal,
    p.s. come on over cuz there's a quiz on my blog today

  6. Good job Norwood...you are 100% correct with all of your answers! Thanks for playing...and yes, of course you could wash down the ice cream with the beer! Anything washes down better with BEER!
    later dude,

  7. Hi Norwood: I'm going to tell you the same thing I just told Tula...tell your Mom to give her sister an extra hug today. My sister is starting her chemotherapy today & I need some extra sister-love traveling through the universe today! Thank you my friend!
    p.s. Norwood...you can help by just keeping us laughing...you're the best at that:)

  8. Good shark impression, Norwood! But, um, if you see a boat hanging around with a bunch of plastic barrels on the bow, swim away fast!

  9. YOOO HOOOOO!! We are behind as usual....give your Mom and and Tula's Mom giant birthday kisses from us.....and it loooks like you all had a fab time.......Archie wants to know if you want to go down to the Cape and do some shark sighting...( oh right that will happen, he fainted seeing them on TV and won't even go in the bath tub now) Love and ksises A+A

  10. You are not very scary. I hope you don't mind that I tagged you. No worries if you don't want to participate.
