Meet Lago, my favorite 7 year old career change guide dog. This past weekend we took a trip up to Tahoe where there are snow drifts up to my head. Lago, being a golden retriever, loves to hop up into them and play around in the snow. His favorite thing to do is to play catch with snowballs, which generally just means having snow explode all over when he slams his jaws shut on them.

I think this picture really shows his personality, a little bit of a dopey grin, flecked with snow that he's been gleefully playing in, focused one hundred percent on playing fetch. This dog is one of the most obsessive fetch players I've ever seen.

Oh, and one more little point of interest, Lago's my friend for another good reason, red heads gotta stick together!
