  1. Great rescue! Ironically, at the same time this story came out our local English language paper here in Cabo, the Gringo Gazette, had as its cover photo a GSD swimming happily in the water here.

    Steffi had this to say: “I could swim for 40 minutes if my mom would put down the #$%&&$#$ cigarettes long enough. She can only handle it for 20 minutes!!! And even knowing how much I like black-faced German Shepherds, she hasn’t even bothered to track this hotty down for beachside play dates!!!”

  2. Rebecca, as an aside, I have tried to get Steffi to stop using exclamation points in her posts. No luck, but at least she’s barking in all caps any more.
