Portia at Doggy Beach

Yesterday, after the strudel-making had been completed (see previous post), Jack and I took Portia, his chocolate Labrador retriever, to her Most Favorite Place in the Whole Wide World:

Doggy Beach!

Oh my gosh, you’ve never seen a more excited and happy dog than Portia when we load up the car to go to the Most Favorite Place in the Whole Wide World.

Uncontrolled tail-wagging ensues.

Being a Labrador retriever, her genes kicked in. There’s nothing she likes better than fetching tennis balls hurled into the frigid water. It may not be the shores of Labrador, but Lake Michigan will do. Take a look
(it might take a while to load, so be patient)

As you can see, she lost the ball so Jack went to fetch another. While he was away, I found a big tree branch and tossed it in to see what she would do.

It was as if she was getting to retrieve a wrecked shipping vessel that had been pounded against an iceberg off the coast of Labrador. Her genes kicked into overdrive.

Jack returned with a replacement tennis ball. But after that, she’d have nothing to do with it. Only the giant log would do.

Take a look. It’s too cute.

Nothing is more fun than a dog that loves water. Misty my alpha Poodle is a total water dog. The male, Timmy growls when his water dish splashes him.
