While walking on the beach at sunrise last summer, I saw a dog digging furiously in the sand. The size of the hole he was creating was quite deep. I asked the woman he was with what he was digging for, and she said, “oh you’ll see.” Sure enough he unearthed a large piece of wood which the woman told me he had buried there the day before. I didn’t ask how he knew the spot where it was, I just enjoyed seeing his look of satisfaction as he sat there taking in the sunrise after a job well done. They’re not called Retrievers for nothing.
