I went to the pond again today, Kenai our Black Lab followed me and took off as soon as we approached the pond. She saw this cormorant swimming peacefully. She stopped, watched and waited for a long time… BUT then she jumped into the water… started swimming toward the bird BUT the bird didn’t fly away. They played tag for 10-15 minutes. Kenai would swim up close and personal and the bird would dive under the water. It would reappear at the other end of the pond and lazily swim around while Kenai swam to the far end. This game went on until Kenai was exhausted! The bird had a great time and Kenai took a long nap!
