Despite the disappointing cancellation of Ironman Lake Tahoe, one member of our party was certainly never disappointed: Fur Face. We loved having a dog with us who could enjoy Tahoe for all of its outdoor splendor. Fur Face (real name Colleen), if left to her own devices, would spend all day fetching: the tennis ball from the lake or the (biggest) stick on the trail. She also loves having an audience to watch her many tricks (she’s a big ham and also loves applause).
We even shot a few photos and videos of Fur Face’s internal conflict: desperately wanting to abide by our command to fetch the ball while fastidiously avoiding water too deep that would force her to swim (border collies generally dislike the water). Check out this GoPro video Jesse shot while teaching her how to swim!
