WildDog has made a life-changing discovery. Water. And, our 15 week-old (and dare I say 30 pound) Chocolate Lab has also learned an equasion: water + fetch = crazy fun. Now, he’s doggie paddling across ponds all over the neighborhood.

It’s amazing to us how Lewis knows no fear at the water’s edge. It’s like he was born to leap from the shore to retrieve stuff. Imagine that.

Watching this little pup attack the water, I know there must be a lesson for me to learn about risk. About launching out from the safety of the shore. About trust.

Somewhere.
