It was a perfect weekend morning. We were walking on the beach in Kaaawa with Ms. Ipo, a beautiful 2-year old German Shepherd, and her person. We found the perfect stick for Ipo to fetch, gave it an almost perfect throw into the water, and Ms. Ipo went bounding in after it. She looked, and looked, and looked some more. And then we figured out the waterlogged stick had sunk under its own weight.
Ms. Ipo got one of those hard lessons in life. Sometimes you fetch the stick, and sometimes the stick sinks.
