Every once in awhile when we're at the park, I'm concerned that we're going to end up like the beginning segment in a show like Bones, or Law and Order, or the X-Files. Elka becomes super interested in an area and I'm unable to ascertain why, and I'm just certain she's going to bring me a skull or something one of these days. It isn't because we live in a bad area or anything, mind you. It's just my thought process.
Because for some mysterious reason, she won't drink water on our walks, I encourage her to hit the creek when we're near it. Dogs don't sweat to cool off, not really, they pant and they release some of that heat through their feet, so I figure standing in the creek must help. I actually read somewhere that using alcohol wipes on your dog's feet can help them cool down quickly as well, but I don't remember where that was, and it's up in the air if it was a reliable source.
This time, Elka was super interested in this big rock that had (of course) a piece of rusty metal next to it. She circled around a few times, and pawed at the water, and actually moved a couple of smaller rocks, and spent some time alternately biting at the water (not trying to drink it) and staring intently.
I told her "If you come up with a human femur, I'm going to be pretty upset", though truth be told, if she found any femur, I wouldn't necessarily know at a glance whether it was human or not. There are deer around here, at any rate. I just don't want to be that headline. She was unconcerned, though, and when I had her back off and looked in that spot when the water cleared up again, I didn't see anything. So who knows?
