Sunday in the Park with Dachshunds: We took Winston and Truman to Golden Gardens again, where we had fabulous views of the Olympics.
The beach at Magnuson Park has been off-limits lately due to toxic algae, so Golden Gardens is the only place nearby where dogs can go in the water safely. Truman loves water, a rather unusual trait for a dachshund.
Winston, however, has never shown any inclination to get wet. This time, though, another dog was chasing sticks, bounding through the waves, and Winston got very animated -- he was determined to chase the dog:
Until he realized that meant getting wet! He was quite conflicted over it -- he desperately wanted to go help that dog out, but the dang water kept discouraging him. Then he'd look over at Truman as if to ask, "What on Earth do you like about this cold, wet stuff, anyway???"
