Trying to at least act like a normal family, we decided to spend a peaceful week at the beach in nearby Michigan. Slightly easier said, than done. Add two teenagers, two other kids, two adults, one physically challenged child, mix in two dags and add a helper. Plus luggage, 5 bicycles and a large dog crate. You get a little bit of...well....chaos. See what I mean?
Apparently not everyone is as "dog friendly" as we are. So we needed a house that was large enough for everyone, handicap accessible AND permitted dogs (plural.) Yeah, did I mention easier said than done?
I did find a place which turned out to be absolutely perfect. Thanks Jason! The nearby beach did allow dogs. Since Gen and Fuji had never been to the beach, I decided to see what would happen. See for yourselves:
Hmmmm, moving stuff out there.......
I can ruuuuuuun!
Maybe I can catch it?
Not so sure about this, it's cold!
OOOH, it's FUN to run!
See my ears flapping in the breeze?
All wet...can we do that again?
Turns out Gen LOVES the beach!!!! She loved feeling the breeze lift her ears and splashing in the water. She ran up and down the beach while the girls were in the lake until she was totally exhausted (for a pug, that's about 15 minutes.)
