Anatomy of a jump

(You can click the photos to enjoy the full glory of a wet dog.)

First comes the thinking; the temptation that is almost too much to bear.

Then, take the plunge! A streak of gold…

A glorious splash heralds fulfillment.

Submerged in delicious abandon…

Leading to satisfaction.

    • Yes – he ‘drinks’ a lot of water when he’s swimming!

  11. If this is “a dog’s life” then I want it!! What a delightful capture. I especially love the first “temptation” photo…you can just see his excitement at the thought of plunging in that water.
