Divot learned to swim today.
Silly me, not bringing the camera with me! All it took was a stick tossed into the water*... and off she went. At first she looked surprised by the water, and hurried out once she got her stick. After she got over the initial shock and got the hang of doggy-paddling she slowed down and paddled around a bit after nabbing her stick.
Now my car smells like wet dog. Phew!!
*She LOVES to play "getcher stick!" (Or "getcher ball" or "getcher pine cone"... she is not picky!) But not fetch. That would imply that she lets you have "her" stick back...
