So I decided Annie needed some nature in her life. I wanted to take off her leash and watch her run at a full sprint in to the water and swim like the lab she is. Well, she struggled a little. Her first time ever having the chance to jump and swim, took a while. BUT I have never seen that kind of energy come out of her. She wouldn't get past the point where she couldn't touch the bottom of the lake, bless her heart. And when she would she would dive back towards to the shore and repeat it all over again.
There is something about Minnesota that always brings me joy, acceptance and peace. I love my home there. And now its only a 7 hour drive away.
