Well, this isn't exactly what we expected. This is the Saturday before Memorial Day at Eagle Lake!


Dakota didn't mind!


The weather did get better. This is Dakota and his new friend Barney.


Dakota has an issue with swimming. Well Barney set out to teach "the kid" how it's done!


And it worked!



His ball had a tear in it and would sink after filling with water. He actually dove completely under water three times to "fetch" it!


Ahhh! Nothing like a good nap after a hard play day at the lake!


Diane (and Dakota)

we have found that Sammy will walk n her hind legs as far as she can reach, then eventually swim out to get it but her first few strokes look SOOO funny because she is coming up from having her hind legs on the ground, so she swims up and makes a lot of splashes... then she gets it together and its a smooth stroke all the way back to shore with her bumper in her mouth. So funny!

And oh by the way: Jett's Mom and Maureen--the sound of music??? The only music we heard at the lake was Woooof! Woooof!
And Charlies Doodle: thank you for the complements on the house. My husband and I have wanted a lake house for years, but anything near us was totally unaffordable. We have been going to Eagle Lake for 20 years and we decided we could handle a 5 hour drive :roll: My husband is a part-time general contractor and he built the house---I'll take my share of credit for the design! Dakota seems to approve!

Thank you so much! I think the house is incredible, but it is due to much luck . Having a general contractor husband was quite convenient, and our new best friend up there is a master carpenter that worked for "beans" and the manager of the restaurant worked for "half the beans" during the winter because the restaurant closes! Plus local stores here, Lumberjack, Home Base and House to Home, all happened to close just when we needed material. Soooo we paid, at the most, 50 cents on the dollar! Yippee! Come visit us!
