This is a picture of Sam cooling off in the Jizera River outside Prague, Czech Republic.
He’s an 8-year-old Golden who understands Czech and English and who is the happiest while in the water. I had to buy a cabin in the forest by a clean river in order to make him happy. The river feeds the drinking water plant for Prague so it’s crystal clear and Sam can easily locate the fish. Of course, after he catches them he is a true conservationist and releases them back for the next time.
What a boy!
—J.C. Cortese, Prague, Czech Republic
