Joyce and I took the girls (our 2 labs) to the Smokeys for the weekend. We rented a place on Douglas Lake in/near Dandridge TN. The lake is WAY DOWN in water level as you can tell from the photo below. The extended backyard is long and steep – probably at least a 30 degree incline. It’s a riot to watch Lola chase a ball down the hill and then try to stop when she overruns the ball. Too funny. And then there is the water. These dogs were born to swim. They love chasing the tennis ball when we toss it out into the lake.
