I lived in Mammoth Lakes for ten years, so I am very familiar with Devil's Postpile - it is fortunate that I love hiking, as we all know that a tired B is a good B!
Loki has always been pretty confident around water - he likes to chase other dogs, and he will follow (at least part way) when they run into the water.
But when I got Freya two years ago, she behaved like the Wicked Witch of the West - she would go to extreme lengths to avoid having water touch any body part beside her tongue. When crossing streams on our hikes, she would spend a long time determining the optimal crossing point, picking out rocks to step on. But then one day, there was a critter that needed a good chasing, so she threw caution to the wind! After surviving that experience, she has been much more relaxed when it comes to the wet stuff…
I am Danish, so they have names from the Norse Mythology:
Loki = Norse God of Mischief
Freya = Norse Goddess of Love
And they live up to them!
