It was a few weeks ago that I received such a gift. I got together with a friend I had not seen for almost a year, even though she lives but twenty minutes away, and we walked two of her dogs and one of mine to Crofton Lake.
Scooter and Ollie are full of energy. Full Of Energy. And Scooter was obsessed with clearing the lake of any and all debris within 20 feet of the shore - sticks, boughs, and logs fifty times his weight and size were fair game, even if it meant he had to swim completely submerged long enough that I was almost ready to jump in to save him. His activity level also made him difficult to photograph! He gives new meaning to the term "perpetual motion".
|Gotta clear the lake. Gotta. Gotta.|
|Now this one.....|
|More out here.....|
|Hey Ollie, help me pull these to shore!|
|You push, I'll pull....|
|Back in for another....|
|There's some under here....|
|Blub, blub, blub....|
|Ha! Got it!|
|Ya could do more than just cheer me on, Ollie!|
|Yeah, I hear ya callin' me - I'm busy!|
|Oh, treats! I'll come out fer a treat!|
It was great to get to watch such a busy dog in action, and to spend time with them and their human. I hope to hike with them more often in the future.
|Sure, sounds good to me!|
|Whatdidya say? I got water in mah ears!|
