Artist's Description

ON SATURDAY, OCT. 3, 009, I TOOK SASHA AND CHEWBACCA WITH ME TO THE YOLO SPORTSMANS ASSOCIATION, WHERE I DO MY TARGET SHOOTING. IT HAS BEEN TOO HOT TO TAKE THEM IN THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS, BUT THE WEATHER IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA IS STARTING TO COOL DOWN. USUALLY BY OCTOBER 31, WE ARE OUT OF THE 100 DEGREE DAYS AND GETTING BACK TO OUR NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. I HAD NOTICED BEFORE THAT SASHA HAD SHOWN A LITTLE ENTEREST IN THE DUCK POND, BUT SHE NEVER REALLY GOT INTO IT,,,,,,,,UNTIL TODAY. SHE DIDN’T GO SWIMMING, BUT SHE DID GO WADING AND ROMPING. SHE KNOWS IT IS WET, BUT “SHE’S NOT QUITE SURE” IF SHE WANTS TO GET IN ALL THE WAY OR NOT. SHE HAS BEEN SWIMMING ONE TIME, STRICTLY BY ACCIDENT MIND YOU, AND SHE HASN’T GONE COMPLETELY SWIMMING SINCE. IT WILL BE FUNNY, WHEN COMES THE DAY THAT SASHA GOES IN FULL MONTY AND ACTUALLY SWIMS, AGAIN. I HAD TO KEEP CHEWBACCA ON THE LEASH JUST TO KEEP HIM FROM TRYING IT HIMSELF AND THEN CLIMBING BACK INTO THE BACK OF MY FORD EXPLORER AND GETTING WATER EVERYWHERE. SO, FOR THE TIME BEING HE STAYS DRY. I TOOK THIS SHOT WITH MY KODAK EASYSHARE Z710 AUTOZOOM 10X, IT’S EQUAL TO A 38-380MM LENS. THIS SHOT WAS ZOOMED TO ABOUT 100MM AND THEN CROPPED IN EVEN TIGHTER. NOW THAT I KNOW SHE HAS AN INTEREST IN THE WATER, MAYBE NEXT SUMMER I’LL LET HER GO DEEPER, OR MAYBE SHE WILL GO DEEPER ON HER OWN. I’LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE, BECAUSE I SURE DON’T WANT HER SWIMMING IN MONTEZUMA SLOUGH. THAT WATER HAS CURRENT AND I COULD LOOSE HER OUT THERE, AT LEAST IN THIS POND, IT’S EASY TO RETRIEVE HER SHOULD ANYTHING GO WRONG. IF I HAD TO, I WOULD WADE OUT INTO THE POND TO GET HER. I DON’T THINK IT IS ANY DEEPER THAN 6 FEET AT IT’S DEEPEST PART,,,,,,,,,IT’S JUST THAT IT’S COLDER THAN A WITCHE’S T#@ IN A STEEL CUP BRA.
