Piper is a blonde German Shephard and a much-loved member of our daughters family.
She is two years old and loves to spend her time at the beach diving for rocks.
Our daughter had told us that this was a favourite past time of Pipers but it was hard to appreciate how intense Piper is about it until we spent an afternoon at the beach with her.
At one point she found a very big rock and had to put in some real effort to get it out of the water and up onto the beach. On those rocks she would dive a few times, get them closer into shore, and then use her paws to work them up on the beach.
The three boys would sometimes throw the rocks sitting close to the water’s edge back in so that she had something to find, but Piper is smart and would take her biggest rocks way up higher on the beach so that they didn’t throw those ones back in.
By the time we were ready to leave the beach Piper had successfully cleaned the rocks out of a big portion of the lake 🙂
Too bad she isn’t allowed on the beaches in the park as there are some areas that would benefit from having the rocks removed from the water.
Until next time …
