Sally Swimming In Prairie Creek

Sally Swims

Whenever Cynda and Dave come to visit, they bring their dog Sally with them. Sally is a beautiful yellow lab. She absolutely loves the water. It doesn't matter of it is a lake, a creek, a mud puddle, or just the water hose. If there is water she will be in it.

Thanksgiving Day Autumn and I went for a walk along Prairie Creek which runs behind my house. Of course Sally wanted to come. She had a great time splashing through the creek. Prairie Creek is a very small shallow creek. As we walked along with Sally splashing through the water, we came to a place where the creek deepened. It was deep enough for Sally to swim. She was so happy. She spent a half hour or more just swimming, then getting out and shaking on Autumn and I, and then swimming again. It was so much fun to watch her that I had to take a bit of video.

Friday as I was going through my pictures and putting some of them on my Flickr page I decided to put a couple of videos up on YouTube. I put on this one of Autumn running along the creek.

Next I decided to put on the video I had taken of Sally swimming in the creek. When you put a video on YouTube you have to give it a title. I decided to do an experiment. I titled the video Skinny Dipping. Immediately there were lots of hits. By the time I changed the title to Sally Swims in Prairie Creek, there were already almost 900 hits. The results of my experiment are a sad commentary on the internet and the people who use it. Here is the infamous Skinny Dipping video. I assure you that it is G rated.

Before the flood the Bible tells us that God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. I wonder what he sees now.


  1. Wow, so interesting! That grandaughter is a cutie! Your dog is beautiful too!

    PS I loved the daschund. : )

  2. Lovely videos of Autumn and I like the video of the dog swimming. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I can certainly believe that about you tube...people are on there looking to see what they can see...and most are looking for trash. We have a yellow lab on the farm and he loves to run to the pond and jump in!

  4. I enjoyed your videos, Richard. Your granddaughter is delightful, and it was a pleasure to see that beautiful dog enjoying his swim. Yes, it's a sad commentary on the state of our world that anything with even the most remotely possible sexual connotation draws the creepy crawlies out of the woodwork. Lord have mercy upon us.

  5. Nice to see the little girl who likes to run,and the video of the lab.They love water and are great family dogs.Have a nice weekend!

  6. Peoples moral standards certainly are in the gutter these days. I remember one blogger who posted pictures of their cat having a bath much to it's disgust & innocently titled the post "Wet Pussy". They said a few days later that their blog visits stat counter went through the roof. Even innocent things get twisted & depraved in this immoral world.

  7. Both videos are very nice and the little girl is so cute! I can understand that you're such a proud Grandpa! :)

    Nice post again!Thanks for sharing.
