"Another Endless Bumper Summer"

More: Titan is a sporting dog in a constant state of training. It is rare to catch him still, but this photo shows him (briefly) relaxing after what felt like his 80th or 90th bumper retrieve. His poodle heritage has won out, and he retrieves with the best of them. (Sometimes he even goes and retrieves the toys of other dogs and gets a stern talking to.) Dogs like Titan exemplify the love and respect of nature we should all strive for in life.
