Kali doesn’t swim. Usually. We made quite some progress in that regard, but she still doesn’t like to go into water deeper than her chest.
Unless there’s ducks, apparently.
This is the same couple of ducks that spent the whole winter around our village, I named them Anja and Vlad. When Kali saw them, she ran into the river, where it was rather wide and thus shallow.
When they took off, she found herself alone on the other side of the river. When I called her, she didn’t come, so we took off walking to a nearby bridge.
Unfortunately for Kali, the bridge was taken away just the day before, to prevent it from being distroyed by the high water we get each spring when the snow melts.
So after all this, she still had to cross the river again on her own.
