Most comically (unless she drowns) the dog-next-door, Rocket, has swum far out into the lake to investigate the friend-or-foe quotients of the various fisherfolk. I looked up to see her churning towards a white motor launch that was about 10 feet ahead of her. The boat zoomed away.
Oh now I am not sure - it might be the neighbor in the boat - so she was probably following her family. She's a very strong swimmer. Whooda thunk a Rottweiler would be so aquatically gifted? She's been here as long as I have, and used to begin barking at about 7 in the morning and continue all day (she was penned during the day in a spot just below the carport, which acted like a Victrola hown). Now, however, she barks less.
