The Essence of Fishing
Recipe for Magic


Our dog, Jenny, loves water.  Truly and absolutely.  She's a great swimmer.

Swim Jenny

She loves being on the water with us. . .

And has no qualms about jumping right in!

Jump Jenny

Her retriever instincts really kick in at the lake.  She loves to retrieve objects -- and is especially fond of flotation cushions!  Jenny will retrieve these cushions all day (as long as we keep throwing them out in the water). . . and just keep stacking them up on the beach.

On occasion, she has also retrieved floating rafts right out from under floating family members.  That doesn't work so well.  They lose air pretty quickly!

Jenny is a great companion at the lake!  But when she gets out of the water. . .

Shake jenny

We all get . . . waterdogged!

What a wonderful photo essay of your Jenny at the lake. The photo of her jumping in the water is great and when she shakes off, I want to take cover.


I absolutely LOVED this post - the photographs and the alongside comments brought out Jenny's personality perfectly!
