Down Deltaville, we spend a lot of time playing on the pier with the dogs. My dog Bailey is a water nut and launches herself off the end of the pier for sticks, pine cones or sometimes even for the joy of jumping off the pier. While my mom and I were out at the store, my dad, Big Sis, Big Sis' friend and the Brat Child were at the house. The kids were throwing sticks for the dogs while my dad chilled in the hammock.
Yes, Big Sis got stung. She also lost a pair of white flip flops. Our dog Bailey actually went and retrieved it, but my mom's dog Bindi took it from Bailey, swam further out and then let go of the flip flop. The other flip flop is apparently still stuck in the muck of Sturgeon Creek. She broke her cell phone when she threw it, but thankfully I was smart enough to have it insured so she had another one waiting for her when she got home from vacation (being the second phone she has broken, she can't get another replacement for a year). I'm proud of her quick response and smart thinking. My dad said it was god she went in because he didn't see where the Brat Child went in, just heard the splash. I'm also proud of the Brat Child who was able to tread water and, while scared, did not panic.
