The Amazing Aqua Diving Dog

In the past two weeks, I've been to Dallas, Chicago and finally back home again. Ty and I always stay pretty busy, but these past few weeks have been out of  control, so our plan for this weekend was complete relaxation. We didn't have any showers. We didn't go out to eat. We didn't see many friends. We didn't really do much of anything besides hang out together around the house.

And a weekend like this usually equates to some quality time in the pool.

And that usually equates to our overly eager, water-loving lab thinking she's invited to lounge in the pool with us.

Lacy can't help it. She was bred to love the water. But I think she's started going a little overboard. She's good at fetching tennis balls and other things that float on the surface of the water, but going after things that sink?

May I say, I apologize in advance for you having to turn your head 90 degrees to watch this video. I don't have a video editor to correct the problem, but I promise it's worth it!

Lacy has learned to dive ... and with such grace! I love it when her legs stick perfectly straight up in the air, like she's doing handstands! Looks like there's another naturally-gifted swimmer in our family.

Hilarious...and very fitting. =) The funniest thing is when she kicks up her legs as she goes under. Totally worth the head tilt.
