The Fish's Tale.
Richie had a great time as well as a very scary time in the park with the dogs yesterday it was good until Richie wanted to come home.
Instead do responding to Richie, Cyril ran off and decided to do some duck chasing instead and jumped in the cold pond.
The ducks led him a merry dance and after many laps of the pond Cyril became totally exhausted.
Richie says he saw him sagging deeper in the water as he got tired but despite calling him, he was still trying to get hold of a duck.
Then Cyril tried to swim back to the bank and got to about 1, 50 meters from the side when he got tangled in a floating branch.
At this point Richie waded out and rescued him, when he put Cyril on the ground, his back legs folded under him.
He had no strength left and laid, wet, cold and crying on the grass, two dog walkers came over with a big scarf to dry Cyril.
Richie put him in one of his bike bags wrapped in his jumper, Cyril cried all the way home, where he looked totally rattled.
Poor Cyril is staying close to Richie ever since.
