NEW PICTURES :)
My human didn't have her normal camera when we went in the pond, so she had to use her phone to take our pictures. Took a little while to figure out how to get pictures off her phone, but here we are in all our slimy, swampy glory.
So we were at the park yesterday and I saw a man with a special camera just like the one The Visitors had. And it looked like he was pointing it at me.
I wasn't sure what to do, so I told brother Dutch... who totally panicked and told me to make a break for it. I had no idea what that meant, so I just did what he did. Which was jump into the duck pond. Which was really NOT a good idea because it made my human pret-ty mad.
Guys! EEEEW. Get OUT of that gross pond. NOW!
We'd never jumped in the pond before, how were we supposed to know the water was going to be so stinky? And green. And slimy. I tried explaining this to my angry human, but she wasn't interested in excuses. She just wanted to know why.
Seriously guys, we come here every day. You know the duck pond is off-limits. What's the malfunction??
We usually don't get yelled at, but she was real close to yelling. Dutch gave me the keep-your-little-puggy-mouth-shut look, but I hate when humans aren't happy so I totally spilled the beans. I showed her the man with the special camera and told her our suspicions about The Visitors.
She wasn't exactly sympathetic.
Puglet, that man is videotaping the ducks. And The Visitors? They were from a company called IDEO. They're designing a product for dogs and wanted to get real-world information about dogs and their people instead of sitting in a design studio, pretending to know everything. We were talking about you and Dutch because you are DOGS.
Did I feel dumb, or what? On the way to the car, other dogs at the park laughed and called us "swampthing" and "slimebucket". By the time we got home, the green slime was dry and didn't want to come off. We had to take the longest bath on earth. But at least we weren't in danger of being abducted or deported.
