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?)


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


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!


Alright, I’m going in!


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


Wow. That was a fun paddle board ride!


I’m tired and ready to lay down.


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


Hey wait up!


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


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.


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


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!


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


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


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


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.
