Like for most dogs I know, the creek was perfect for a drink and a dip--and please click on this picture to enlarge it and you will see how beautiful this boy's built! Max and Scout became soaked jostling around in that water, but suddenly, like he knew his time was limited, Scout "got serious" and went back to following his nose. One thing I reallllly liked about him--he seemed to have an adult dog maturity, yet a more youthful playfulness that worked.
Scout was entirely well-behaved, agreeable, loving, easy to handle and....well, a nice size! One of the smaller guys I've had out on the trail, yet he is muscular and well-proportioned. He didn't seem to want to destroy anything in my house, yard or in the vehicle. He sat quietly in the camper and smelled the fresh air through the windows, and wagging at people in other cars! :)
