Cottage Dogs

The girls and I have been away this week. One word can sum up our week...amazing. My girls would love to be full time cottage dogs. Maybe in another lifetime.

Until then we are very fortunate to have friends that let us glimpse into what living in paradise feels like.

Thank you to my good friends for having us. Your hospitality and kindness is truly appreciated. We enjoyed every minute.

Here are a few of my favourite photos. I haven't even managed to get through them all yet.

This is what paradise looks like

Our good friend almost lost her dog when he fell off the boat near a dock. He very easily could have drowned to death without a life-jacket on, instead he was calmly swimming to shore. His owner? Not so calm but incredibly relieved she spent $18.00 on a life-jacket for him. They are worth every penny!

Leave it to Zo to figure out that you don't have to put your face in the water to fetch sticks from the lake. Just use your paw! Zo would carefully fish sticks out of the lake by using her paw and batting them towards the shore. Only when she had them safety on the dry shore would she pick them up with her mouth.

I hope no one minds a lot of upcoming cottage photos.

Lastly, please keep your fingers and toes crossed for Mylee, who once again be undergoing an MRI tomorrow for the sake of research.

Like most who make the choice to contribute to research I am a mess about my girl and will be until she is safely back in my arms tomorrow morning. Research is not easy on any involved but it is especially hard on the owners and breeders waiting patiently on the other end.

  1. Saying it was the best $18 I ever spent is an understatement. After 3 of us just about jumped in the water to save him, I was thrilled to see him happily swimming to shore.
