My Pond: The Official Tour, by Buster

Hey, blogsters! Your host, Buster the Supreme Emperor of The Pond and All Her Majesty's Possessions in the New World, bringing you the Official (approved by Her Highness, Persephone the Dark Goddess of the Unnamed Regions) Tour of my domain!



Quite happily, those annoyingly loquacious fellow-travelers (the very same Persephone of the Wine-Dark Seas of the Underworld and her Demeter-Wannabe mother, Bailey) have been temporarily cast out of Eden, condemned to wander the forsaken streets of Connecticut with their lackey male human for Eternity (or a week, maybe) while I, the virtuous, anointed hunk of puerile canine energy can enjoy the Pond alone with my human Mom! Hah!

Oh, the tour...

First, ladies and gentlemen, we shall begin with a 360-degree panoramic view, as seen by Buster the Mariner--from the Geographic Center (!) of my watery empire:

So it ain't the Pacific! But it has enough room for its own Pond-Monster, which of course, is ME ! The terminus of this panorama, of course, is Castle Buster, my summer palace.

Here's my personal dock, with my personal Royal Yacht, propelled by the very same energy-source that powered the triremes at the Battle of Salamis!




At high-noon, the place is hopping with frenetic activity. Observe the breathtaking sense of urgency!



And what lies beneath? Yes, I can summon monsters from the briny deep! Unspeakable things, n'ere seen by human eyes...


As night falls, gales and boreal cyclones whip the water into such a frenzy that only an experienced mariner such as I would dare to cross this body of water.



And here is my evening perch, on the porch, tongue-couchant, awaiting the obeisant attentions of She-Who-Also-Commands.


As you might imagine, my life is difficult and challenging!

More to come in my next dispatch...

Your most obedient correspondent,

Buster, Admiral of the Ocean Sea of New Hampshire

Based on those little swimmie things, we're betting you can hear lots of frogs at night!

Great lake. Miss Fergi would love to swim in it!

Ciao, il mio dolce ragazzo!

Castello Busterigo and its watery kingdom are magnifico, and you provided an eccellente tour of the grounds. It appears there is plentiful wildlife there for your personal amusement, although I am sure you rule your minions with fairness and justice. Awww, principe azzurro,you are truly a noble being!

Speaking of wildlife, I, Lucia, found a turtle in the far corner of la mia zia's yard (which, yes indeed, I really "dig"!!) early this morning, a creature I have never before encountered. It was a thrilling discovery!!!!!

Tanti baci!
Lucia

We wish we could join you in your paradise, Buster! We just have one slight problem with your post...we find it hard to believe that your life is either difficult OR challenging! It looks, to us, like you have it MADE, big boy!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches
