• Happy Saved My Best Friend.

    My Irish Setter Oliver – who is utterly terrified of his own reflection in the glass shower door, who cowers in fear every time he can smell the oven turned on, who drops to the ground and shows his belly if so much as a teacup chihuahua growls at him – had no qualms about jumping head first into glacial whitewater for what I imagine he expected to be a nice, cooling swim. The same skittery dog – who takes a good 2 minutes marching on the spot in focus before he can muster the courage to jump into the backseat of the car – managed to scramble his scrawny butt out of the raging rapids and onto a narrow trunk of a fallen tree.
