We were in FL last week. Dogs aren't allowed on the beach but right next to our cottage was a nature preserve accessible by foot only, Jolee Island. There is a small beach on the island. It's not for sunbathing or hanging out but one morning when we were walking Tessa tried to RLH on leash; her little feet were running but she was going nowhere. So I took her off leash. It was early and no one else was around. She had so much fun and luckily I had my camera. Too bad I didn't get video. There's also some shots of her in the water. She'd get in water deep enough to cover her legs and then hop and splash around. Given the right circumstances I may have a swimmer?
There is a small playground and when Tessa saw the slide she flew up the steps so I dropped the leash and she ran down the slide, then immediately did it over and over. She has no fear.
Jan, the photos are great. I can't wait to see more. I especially like the one of her running down the slide and the "dog in flight" RLH photo. How cute.
This is the same puppy you thought might never come out of her shell??
