Vacation was exactly what I needed. And I think it's what the little dog needed too - LOL - she down-right refused to get out of the water at times. I now call her my little Jack Labrador Retriever. She will fetch from the water for hours...she just loves it. Good for her leg too! Also got to see her excavate an area - she must have caught a scent, and proceeded to dig a rather large hole, moving roots out of the way in the process. Had to put an end to her fun though, since it wasn't our property. Aw the joys of being a real dog - eating sticks, digging holes and swimming in the lake.
