the great chase
The announcer at the dog shows tells me that poodles were supposedly bred to be water retrievers. The above sequence is what happened when Sissy encountered a cormorant on the beach. It headed into the water. Sissy stopped at getting her toes wet. The bird headed out into the water as Sis walked away in disgust. She definitely isn’t going to make it as a retriever. That’s for certain.
