I need to update this blog more frequently. I’ve failed to note that weeks ago, Darby began swimming daily, sometimes twice a day. The plummeting temperatures in our pool haven’t deterred her in the least. Note the white object in the lower left corner is the nose of Tucker, who never joins Darby in water, but often hovers nearby, watching her with a mixture of horror and fascination (and sometimes enjoying games of trying to snatch the chicken from her sodden jaws.)
The trick for us is preventing her from dashing into the house, dripping wet. Sometimes I towel her off, but usually she just air dries. In a dry moment yesterday, Darby (and Tucker) switched to their festive red colors, in honor of the holiday season. Sunday Darby, at least, will march with the CCI Drill Team in the LJ Christmas Parade!
