mukha's big heart

mukha's such a good girl. she balanced her treat on her nose and let me take lots of pictures. they're cute~ she's adorable, but the treats are too big. there's 2 different sizes though, i'll have to get the small ones next time.. and take more pix of course!

it's not her first time in the lake, just her first time jumping in on her own, for fun. she has had a lake in her backyard her whole life and she has always played around in the shallow part, mostly digging up roots. and she's been to the ocean a lot..

mukha wading in the shallow water. this was deep for her.
sometimes the lake is green!

island hopper!
the lake was so low last summer that little islands popped up.
mukha liked to hop from one to another :)

rolyn and chanhi loved the lake! in the pic below you can really see their personalities, even though it's a low quality pic. they would both jump in at the same time, get to the stick at the same time, but rolyn almost always got the stick! if chanhi got to the stick first, she would turn around and swim back. she was really sweet and passive and she usually let rolyn have the stick. rolyn was so competitive! look at rolyn, she is looking at chanhi and thinking she is so cool with her big stick! chanhi is like 'whatever'. chanhi was such a calm, swift swimmer. rolyn always tried to swim as fast as she could! she looked like she was trying to run in the water instead of swim! funny girls.
dynamic duo!
remembering rolyn and chanhi.
