Smokie is an Australian Shepherd who just never gets quite enough to do. One cool autumn day we walked with him and his person down to the beach and found a nice tennis ball to toss. For some reason, dogs really like to jump into the cold, cold water and get the ball. They like to bring it back and shake the water all over their people. What gets me about this picture is the relationship between the nose and the ball. Nose points directly at ball, the rest of the dog follows. Focus is pinpointed and alert. We can learn good things from dogs. Thanks, Smokie!
