Lola doesn’t seem too worried by sharks in this photo – although she hates getting her feet wet. She jumps over puddles, she prances round dog pee, and only paddles up to her ankles (do dogs have ankles?). She actually proudly reached this point in the river by delicately picking her way over rocks. Do not be deceived. She’s a water wimp. And probably with good reason, judging from Myles’ poem, below. Thanks, Myles!
