I love paddle boats!

This is my best kid friend Ashley. Mommy, Ashley, Suzanne, and I went to Gallup Park in Ann Arbor and rented a paddle boat! This was the best group picture we could get even though mommy and I am cut out. Paddle boats are the strangest things. It is a bench that floats and it works just like a bike! It was neat and a bit crowded and with 3 people and a dog it left little room for me to move around. I was glad that they included me though! I saw one other dog out in a canoe!
In the beginning I sat in the middle away from the water. It was a bit scary because it would rock and there were no edges!!
But I got used to it and sat up front with the wind in my ears. I heard them talking about getting me a life jacket so more fun water days are in my future! This swan was following us and at first we thought it was beautiful and exciting but then it got really close and mommy said it was getting mean looking so we tried to get away from it. It was a beautiful day and the park was gorgeous!
There was a playground so Ashley and I went down the slide, it was the perfect day.

That looks like SO much fun!! You're a lucky dog. I've never been on any kind of boat. I must put that on my "to do" list. Landlocked, Tank

Lola - that looks like a great day. You're lucky to have a tiny hooman to play with - I have one too - they are the best. I like the idea of the boat - I'll talk to mommy about trying to find one for us -

Thanks for sharing

Before the gang I have now I use to take my dogs boating. They loved it. I don't go to the lake anymore but it sure does look like you had fun!
