Way back, when Greta was a very young pup, we were taking her daily for walks in the forest to a local lake. Each day, our German Shepherd, Fritz would jump in, but Greta would just stand there and watch.
I tried to get her interested, but she just stood there watching Fritz swim. She was so stubborn!
Then one day Jack threw a larger stick out, and Fritz jumped in, along with Greta!
Jack was panicked and began to take off his shoes, and remove his wallet from his shorts, as he feared that Greta would not know how to turn around and come back to shore.
But Greta was far smarter than anyone knew, and when Fritz grabbed the stick and turned to swim in, so did Greta.
And thus began Greta’s love affair with the ponds and lakes in Central New Hampshire.
