I took Apache to the lake today. The forest preserve was full of people so I kept her on leash until the shore and let her loose.
At some point I decided to up the ante and as she swam for the stick I ran and hid in some woods so she would turn to me and say "where is he"
Some kids were in a group and they saw her and were like "What is that!!!???" They thought she was some huge wild animal LOL. I came out of the woods and told her to come while she was swimming and the kids let out a sigh of relief that it was only a dog.
