One of the best things about our new area is the close proximity of great places to hike - and cool off! What a treat on a hot summer day! Lucky has always loved the water, but Lady never was too sure. She would gingerly step into the water, taste it, and then look at me. I would offer all sorts of encouragement, accompanied by enthusiastic hand gestures and pantomine, trying to coax her into a more adventurous approach. That has changed this summer! Lady has abandoned her dainty ways, now honing in on every creek or stream within 50 yards of the trail.
Katie, who is usually Lady's sidekick in all things, will have nothing whatsoever to do with the water. She won't even stick a toe in or take a drink. I told her she's part labrador retriever, but she apparently doesn't believe me. No matter, we all had fun, wet or not!
