And guess who wanted to go outside and play "fetch" in the back yard?
(Hint: It wasn't the Bear, who had on his storm suit.)
The only other possible character for this was Her Ladyship, Miss Sadie — the Standard Poodle. Her genetics tell her she's a retriever; she also has webbed paws, for working in water.
You can figure it out from there.
P.S.: We went out and played for 15 minutes. It wasn't Miss Sadie who wanted to come in at that point.
