Anyone got water wings?

My friend Tucker is back for another visit, so of course that translates into lots of walks. Lots. Of. Walks.

This morning we headed out early for a jaunt around Como Lake—it’s a weekend tradition for me and Tucker—but the landscape was different, somehow. It took me a quarter of a mile to figure out why: Como Lake is overflowing.

We’ve had a ridiculous amount of rain in the past 10 days. And now it shows: On my way back to the car, I noticed with dismay that one of my favorite benches was partially submerged. But Tucker didn’t care. For him, water invites exploration—and it inspires mirth.

That’s why I love the company of dogs. Seen through Tucker’s eyes, Como Lake hasn’t lost a bench so much as it’s gained a beach.
