Summer keeps on coming around when my parents visit, and she fits right in with the big dogs when it comes to running about, exploring, jumping, and, of course, practicing strong recalls. In fact, in order to get this shot, we had Summer sit stay so the humans could get out of the frame, and then she was called by a person standing behind the photographer. It took three or four tries to get a jumping shot this good, and she was a great sport the whole time.
And what would a group dog hike be without a photo of the daily stay? Summer's rapidly catching up in size to her cousins, and this shot shows off her awkward teenage ears nearly as well as the previous one.
