We love to vacation in Northern Michigan by the Great Lakes. That is where I was raised, and I never truly appreciated the fact that I grew up in a year-round vacation destination until I moved away. We have been taking our children back every summer their entire lives. It is a dog friendly state, and we have been able to find a few beaches that allow dogs, so we can take them to swim. Yes, pugs swim! I am a bit surprised, but they have webbed toes. We saw a pug last summer swimming and fetching a ball for it’s owner, and it was just like a fish! Ming likes the water too, but not to that degree. She likes to wade, smell things, put her puggy face in the sand, and run! Here she is with my daughters and I, and also her little black pug sister, Lily. This was last summer on Lake Michigan. I wonder what she will do this year now that she is two? Maybe she will be braver and leap into the waves!
I love to hear your thoughts!
