|Scout, safe on shore.|
Andy launched Gypsy with a throw of a stick and Scout bounded unknowingly after her. Gypsy hit the water with a tsunami-splash.
Scout reversed on a dime, had there been one in the sand.
She was content, then, to sniff around the water's edge and wander into the shallows.
Later, when I waded into Grousehaven Lake, she bounded in to me without regard to the water's depth. Suddenly, she was swimming! And not the usual puppy's-first-time-in-water-slap-the-front-paws swim. She swam like a pro!
But headed back to shore anyway.
