We had wonderful weather! It was so warm Mylie and Watson went swimming in Lake Superior (brrrr!) They were just fine. Mylie loves to swim, and Watson doesn't like to be left out so he waded into the water a little too.
Unfortunately though, Mylie chooses the worst times and places to go swimming. We were trying to take a Christmas card picture with Michael's family when Mylie ran off right into the water. Here you'll see the first picture with a dry Mylie and the second with a soaking wet Mylie.
before (dry mylie)
after (wet mylie)
Later, Mike and I were trying to get our own family picture with the puppies and Mylie jumped off the rocks into a very deep part of the lake between two sets of rocks where the waves were huge. The waves crashed over her head and we couldn't see her. The undertow pulled her in and we were all very scared. Mike ended up jumping in to save her, clothes and all. He was soaking wet and freezing cold, but everyone was safe.We actually do have pics, but those are on Ericka's camera- i'll post them later.
My brother Gooch's goal was to catch a trout with his bare hands. He succeeded :-)Mylie also went fishing, except she didn't catch anything. She wasn't afraid of putting her head completely under the water though. Can you teach a dog to fish? Maybe we'll have to work on that.
It was a wonderful weekend. There are more pictures to sort through, so I may have to do a follow-up post with more highlights.
