Sunrise 6:39 am: Never met a puddle she didn't like

Cassie, the Dawn Joggers' 12-year-old Australian Shepherd, has always been a "water girl." As a puppy - and puppyhood lasts until about age seven with Aussies - it was never enough to splash once in a puddle. Just as often there were multiple "splash throughs" at each and every puddle. And rare was a puddle that went unnoticed. Such joyful puddle enthusiasm has led to her moniker as the "dirtiest Aussie in Menlo Park."

Now that she's a more mature girl, there's a bit more selectivity with puddles. On this morning's jog, she only hit about 80% of available water holes. But they joy remains.

Note another two minute gain in sunrise from yesterday.
