Cheoah, our smallest Siberian, can put on the charm when she wants to, as evidenced by these pictures from this weekend’s camping excursion:
But don’t let that innocence fool you. She can have a lot of fun when she decides to. After we got home last night, we let The Herd out into the back yard for about 15 minutes before we took off for dinner. Normally, when Cheoah is outside, we secure the water bucket (a 5 gallon bucket that is filled with fresh water twice a day). But, figuring she only had a few minutes, we made the fateful decision to leave it out there.
You see, Cheoah likes to play in the water. She submerges her head and blows bubbles. She gets both front legs in and splashes water on her belly. She, in general, lives up to the Cherokee interpretation of her name – Otter. See for yourselves:
Yes, that would be water standing in the dog room. The rest of the Herd had water on the bottom of their paws, but Cheoah was literally dripping wet. In 15 minutes. Needless to say, we were late for dinner. Sigh.
