This weekend, the weather was absolutely glorious. To have such a bright and sunny day in early February, is a rare treat for us here in Tacoma, Wa.
We decided to take Charlene out so she could enjoy the day with us. She loves going out on the back deck, especially when it's warm and sunny.
Charlene stepped out on the deck, had a few big sniffs of the fresh air, jumped up on the top rail and went to roost at her favorite point, in front of the holly tree.
The birds kept her captivated while Craig poked around the yard, looking at his plants. I was on the ground beneath her, several feet away, fiddling with my camera and adjusting the settings for this bright day.
After the birds vacated the tree, in the sun and in state of bliss, Charlene began rubbing her face along the railing.
I'm not entirely sure what happened next, I only saw this from the corner of my eye, but I think in her blissed-out state, Charlene attempted to roll over on her back-side, on top of the rail. Well, this rail is not as wide as Charlene and all of a sudden, she went tumbling over the edge.
I looked up when I heard her scrambling and saw her clinging for dear life from the side of the deck. After a few panicky moments passed, she managed to climb back up to safety, and regained her composure.
It might of been scary for her in that moment, but even if she would of fallen, she would of been just fine. The deck isn't that far off the ground and beneath her was a very soft patch of grass.
But it did happen. And here is the evidence to prove it.
