The Ultimate Air Dogs of the National Cherry Festival have nothing on Simon, a handsome Labrador Retriever whose life revolves around his beloved tennis ball.

Simon is a “summer holidayer” of the Old Mission Peninsula. His humans are Beth and Eric Boursaw, whose dad, George Boursaw, is Tim’s uncle. So I think that makes Simon our cousin.

They spend a week or two on the OMP each summer, and Simon and his brother Perry spend a lot of time on the shores of East Bay frolicking in the water.

As is usually the case when I’m attempting to take photos of dogs, I get about one million shots of blurry fur and disappearing tails. But sometimes, I’m lucky enough to get one nice clear shot, like the one above.

Here’s another photo of Simon below, and one of Perry, who did not like the idea of standing still long enough for me to get a good picture.

If you have pets you’d love to see featured in Old Mission Gazette, email me a photo and some info about their breed, personality, etc. at [email protected].
