I ended up taking the dogs for a quick walk in the woods. Soon, we were moving through dense woods and then out alongside water, which already bore the evidence of Fall’s soon arrival. What did Chipley do? Naturally, he dove into the shallow pool and then ran down the sandy pathway without giving a second thought to the consequences of his actions—a bath—his second in as many days. Cocoa, on the other hand, was the perfect Dog School 101 dog!


Cocoa Joy and Chipley take a break before heading home.
