Our dog learned a new trick this summer. He has learned how to fetch a stick in water. Now you must understand that prior to now he did not like to go into the water above his ankles. We discovered that he liked water while at the lake one day. We heard a splashing, didn't see the dog and went to investigate. He has seen a stick floating in the water and decided it needed rescuing. Naturally we wanted to see if he would do it again and so the game began. He still doesn't like water that is too deep but he will venture into the deep water to get the stick as long as it doesn't look too far away.
