Canine Contentment

Take one enthusiastic Labrador Retriever....

Add one long river....

Toss in a couple of adoring young ladies...

Make sure a copious amount of sticks are involved.... 



Scanning for sticks and/or fish is a must....


Don't forget the shake-shake.....

 
  Mix all together to get one supremely happy dog. 


"Heaven goes by favor.  If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in."
