A swim - me, my iguana and my dog

This morning I wanted to take a swim. I noticed one of our now medium sized green iguanas (we call him Pepe) was eating some grass by the pool but felt if I was cautious he could enjoy his breakfast and I could enjoy my swim.

So there we were all relaxed – him chomping and me swimming ... however our dog (we call her Mika) was also in the yard. Du Dum Du Dum goes the music (if there had been some)….

I saw Mika headed in Pepe’s direction. He stood still as he was well camouflaged in the grass and sure enough she walked right past him – for a second - and then she smelled him.

Well everything happened pretty fast after that as she ran and he ran and the next thing I know I have an iguana flying at me – Pepe grazed my shoulder or was it my hair as he hit the pool.

Needless to say I did a little scream and was out of there! First I needed to catch the dog and put her in the house; then to allow Pepe to finish his swim and climb out of the pool.

Just one of the adventures of living in Mexico!

Enjoy the Adventure!
With great love, Suzanne
