I fell in the ocean, right off the back of the boat! How humiliating.
My human friend, Debi, drove her dinghy to the back of our boat to pick me up for yoga. I should have known something weird was going on when Kristina didn’t put my harness on me. You can see it in the photo below. She makes me wear it, so IF I fall overboard, she can easily pick me up.
Well, I guess she forgot to put it one me.
Debi arrives and I get a bit excited.
“Hello,” I bark.
Debi drives close to the back of the boat and ties up. Kristina is ready with her yoga gear.
“Not today,” Kristina says. “There are wild pigs on the beach. You have to stay on board.”
I whip my head around to face Debi and she confirms the bad news. I turn too quickly and start to fall.
“Oh Oh,” I bark, but no one grabs me.
My paws slip off the first step.
“Help me,” I bark.”
I’m now on the second step and the third is not far away. Before I can let out my third bark, I’m in the water.
I know I can’t get on the back step by myself so I head to shore. Lucky for me, I’m pretty slow at the dog paddle and don’t get far.
Debi pushes off the stern and drives beside me. I’m a smart dog and turn to face her.
No here comes the problem. I’m not wearing my harness. The dingy tubes are two feet out of the water, and Debi has nothing to grab on to. She reaches under my armpits and struggles me aboard.
She’s soaked, I’m soaked, but at least I’m aboard.
Thanks for reading . . .

Oh poor Farley!
Woof Woof. I’m okay. THanks.
Awww Farley! Glad you got picked up before swimming all the way to shore! It happens to the best of us and watching the humans get their clothes all wet is sometimes worth it for the laugh! =^.^=
Meow Meow to you. Debi laughed even though it was her who got all wet. She’s a great human with a very big heart. I think she loves me!
You are worth getting my yoga clothes soaking wet with salty sea water Farley! Thanks for being so cooperative in getting into my dingy. 🙂
Woof Woof. Thanks for saving my life. I think that’s the second time you’ve come to my rescue. I’ll never forget the wild pig and your heroic efforts to get it away from me.
Oh, what a scary moment for Farley and for all watching. (typos in 3 para/ my = me and under Farley’s photo strike 1 “and and.”
Woof woof, I think my paws slipped on the keyboard. Thanks for letting me know. I may be a bad typer, but I’ll never admit to being scared 🙂
LOL! Poor Farley
Poor Faley. Bet he barks for his harness now!
Woof Woof. Of course I do. My owners need to smarten up!
Keep her inline Farley 🙂
