Cobalt: Soggy Doggy Day 2

Sunday morning, we went back out to Cherry Beach. We wondered if Cobalt would still be keen on the water, or if we'd need to coax her out again, to jump-start her.


Leap


We hadn't needed to worry.

In fact, within ten minutes, we had her swimming for the first time since her koi pond mishap.


Swimming!


She couldn't get enough of the water. She must have brought that toy back dozens of times.

Here You Go


She was extremely pleased with herself.


Smug


Eventually she started to tire out, and we took her for a lap of the beach and back to the car.

At this point, we decided I needed some waterproof shoes. I have "convertible" pants (the legs zip off above the knees to make them into shorts), but no sandals or anything. So we ran a short shopping expedition so I could go into the water next time, and let L take the photos.

That evening, we were back at Cherry Beach, and she was back in the water. This time, I was the one in with her, and L was on shore with the telephoto lens.

Coming Back


And, occasionally, out of the water.


Spikey Pup

Shake!


We took her deeper into the lake than she'd been before, but she did very well. She sometimes had trouble spotting the toy in the waves (which were much larger than they'd been that morning or the evening before), but she usually found it.


Searching

Periscope Pup


Sometimes it was a long swim back.


Long Swim Home


But she really enjoyed the water.

And, as before, she was extremely pleased with herself.


Pleased as Punch


So we'll be back, during the week and on the weekends.
