Once while visiting another Carolina river, Meko watched intently as I sifted the river bed through my fingers, looking for stones, arrowheads, and other aquatic treasures. Her expression sought to understand, sought to be a part of the adventure at hand. She began "snorkeling" beside me. First the tip of her nose, then her whole muzzle, and a bit reluctantly but with an eye on the prize mentality... Her entire head. It took a few unsuccessful tries before she pulled up a flat rock the size of a football. She seemed incredibly pleased with herself. She continued her "snorkeling", pulling up algae covered limbs, hollow logs, river stones of all sizes, and leaves that floated by in the peaceful current. Ever since, Meko cannot visit a river without seeking out the " treasures" hidden beneath the surface of the water. I absolutely love her spirit. She seeks out the unseen secrets of the universe... And is never disappointed in what she finds.
