Playing fetch with a big, dumb, lovable dog

I went out to the lake near the house to get the dog tired. She’s been very active inside the house, probably because the weather has been so nice.

There is a particular place by the lake with a steep incline, so the ball travels farther and she has to work harder to run back to me. Well, after a few back-and-forths, she decided that she had enough. She took that ball and ran into the lake to drink some water and cool off.

I love this big, dumb, lovable dog. She has been with us for five years, bringing us 99% good times and the occasional headache when she decides to eat something she shouldn’t, clean a cat, or lose her bowel control in the living room.

Here’s a video of the whole “I’m going into the lake whether you like it or not” incident. I hope you enjoy it.
