If the brightness of his star were determined by how many people loved
him, Sundance's star would mirror his name. Lovely, loopy Sundance - the
epitome of a Lab. Sundance: he of the magnificent head and perfect
conformation. But Danceman didn't bother with tainting that perfection
with something so trivial as dignity.
Sundance and Jessye locking lips over a tennis ball for minutes on end,
tugging, maneuvering, circling. If a new arrival came in through the gate,
they'd move into a position so both could see who had arrived.
Sundance taking cookies with such great enthusiasm that the cookie-giver
often got an unwanted manicure.
Sundance ingesting a kelp bulb and even more amazingly passing same!
Sundance eating a whole bag of kibble, oblivious to the pain he was going
to face (and cause Mom).
Sundance tutoring Tully in the fine art of licking the dirty dishes after
they're loaded in the dishwasher.
Sundance and Tully wrestling on top of Mom while she lay on the couch -
how did they not break her?
And Sundance running out into the surf with perfect abandon knowing that
nature had built him for such romps, and completing the picture of blue
sky, white surf and beautiful golden dog.
