Chacha's first jump in off the bank

20th November 2008
Chacha has been retrieving all manner of things but usually going in from the shallows...
Today was her first time to have the courage to jump in off the bank to retrieve her bright pink ball.
I got a few photos but only from behind, as you can see!!
(They go from top to bottom of the page in time)

Getting ready....
First jump!!
Third leap!
A moment's pause!
Coming in through the reeds!
Second leap!
You didn't tell me getting out would be this hard!
Going out...
Lap of honour!
This is easy!
Bringing it on home!
Quicker to go this time!!!
A quick retrieve...
