Ralphie is a true beach bum at heart!

Hey guys, come on let’s hit the road! I hope they packed my food, a brush & and (paws crossed) my Duckers.

Rise and shine guys! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to play!

Hmm, breakfast first. What to have? Yum, that snack looks good!

You want to play inside first? Okay. (How can I say no to this cute face?)

20120618-210448.jpg

Look what I have. They remembered to pack Duckers!!

20120618-210346.jpg

We can play inside for a little bit, Meg, but let’s go to the beach soon! Look, I made a tower out of blocks.

That was impressive, right? Ready for beach time now? Come on, let’s head down. I mean, look at the view!

Hip hip Hooray, it’s officially beach time!

Thanks for taking me down to the water, Addy.

I like to play on the beach with the girls. Look at all their toys!

20120619-125655.jpg

Alright, I’m going in!

20120619-202605.jpg

Hey, got any treats to reward me for going into the lake? Looks like you do!

20120618-215403.jpg

Wow. That was a fun paddle board ride!

20120618-215314.jpg

I’m tired and ready to lay down.

20120618-215604.jpg

Okay, enough laying around. How about a walk in the woods?

20120618-215704.jpg

Hey wait up!

20120618-215759.jpg

I love the outdoors up here, I can be off my leash!!

20120619-125150.jpg

Haha, I beat everyone back to the cottage and now I’m super hot. Let’s go down to the lake, as I need to cool off again.

20120619-210920.jpg

Oh boy, I think another treat is in my future!

20120619-125228.jpg

I love being in the water, though only for a little bit at a time. By the way, that cup just looks like a beer, it’s actually filled with water!

20120619-125549.jpg

When I get tired, I like to rest on the steps up to the house where there’s some shade.

20120619-200152.jpg

When the girls want to head up to the house, I make sure they take it slow and hold the railing to be safe.

20120619-200248.jpg

All in all, the long weekend at the cottage was a complete success! It
really couldn’t have been any better!

20120619-200509.jpg

In fact, I can’t wait until we visit again this summer. Until then, I’ll leave you with this view!

If you couldn’t tell by his commentary, Ralphie had a great time in Northern Michigan with his cousins, Addy and Meg!

With all the playing, walking & swimming, Ralphie slept quite soundly each night in the cottage. On the way home he even curled up in a ball and totally zonked out for the ride.*

Stay tuned for more of Ralphie’s up north adventures this summer!

Thanks for stopping by!!

*If you were wondering, Ralphie snuck up to the front seat for the latter part of the ride home, but normally he stays in the backseat for all car rides. 🙂

    • Thanks!! It is about a 4.5 hour drive from our home, but that’s not too bad.

      My nieces have been known to fill up their kiddie pool in their backyard and play beach time at home. I often thought a kiddie pool for Ralphie might be good on really hot days–like the record highs we’ve been experiencing lately!! 90s are just too hot for us!! 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day!!

      Sanna & Ralphie

      • My humans bought me a paddling pool, but I wasn’t very impressed by it – reminded me too much of having a bath!! Luckily, we have a hose-pipe ban where we live so they can’t fill it up BOL.
