They had a special treat planned for Mukky too, a little trip to a lake; you see Mukky had been struggling with so much sea water lately. While he found the salty sensation was growing on him, he was really missing his fresh water, the stillness of it, the way it lets you sink. He really can’t understand how the moon can effect it, making it moving up and down the beach; how salt helps you float. Seriously, how does it work? He would ask on a daily basis.
