The farm pond

We often are asked how deep our pond is and what type of fish it holds.  We took a canoe out on it one evening in hopes of measuring the depth.  Between two small children and a dog who wanted to swim beside the boat, the measuring was not 100% successful.  We know it is at least ten feet deep.  As far as fish in the pond, Hubby and friends have caught bass and perch.  Hubby has seen a large catfish.  The pond needs fished since no one fished it for at least ten years.

Rosie the farm dog loves swimming in the pond.  She will swim all the way across it in hopes of catching a wild goose.  So far she hasn’t had any luck.  I’m trying to get the courage to swim across it too.  I need a swimming friend to come brave the pond with me.  Who is in?
