He was one HAPPY puppy! He bounced through the water like a clumsy gazelle.
Winchester loved hauling sticks out of the water too.
And since Moose didn't really care to join Winchester in the water, Winchester would bring the sticks up on the beach and taunt Moose with them since Moose still needs to be on a leash. Eventually though, Winchester would get close enough for Moose to grab ahold and they'd play tug.
