A Day at the Beach

Hi everyone!!! We're working on catching up with all of your bloggies and hope we didn't miss TOO much. We've been trying to cram some fun into these HOT days and haven't been around the blogger-machine too much. I have to share one of my fabulous adventures with you.....



The other day, I got to stay in a cool HOTEL!
>
"Ok, THIS is MY bed....you guys can have the other one!"



I slept all night and even got served breakfast in bed!

"What is THIS? KIBBLE???....I saw the room service menu on the desk! Kindly order me two scrambled eggys at ONCE!"



We checked out of the hotel and went for a short drive, then walked through some sand until.....

"HO-LY CRAP CANNOLLIS WITH SPRINKLES!!!"


Could it really be?????

LAKE MICHIGAN!!!! WHOOHOOO!



We went to Central Beach (Part of the Indiana Dunes State Park system). This was a new beach for us to try, but mom did her homework and it is one of the "dog friendly" beaches with lots of sand for me to dig in!

DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG DIG
"HEY...I thought SANDwiches were supposed to be yummy? This one is making my face itch!"



Mom took me for a long beach walk and we found some cool rocks...

"Oooohhh...pretty!"



Holden took me swimming...

"HEY...why do these waves keep chasing me???"



Dad rubbed my belly on the blanket...

"Awwwwww yeah! Beach Blanket Belly Rubs are the BOMB!"


After all that fun, sun and sand, I was TIRED and found a shady spot next to the beach bag for a nap.

"OK, we can go home now!"


We hope everyone is staying COOL out there! This heat is RIDONKULOUS here in the midwest!!! NOT Puggy weather at ALL!

What an awesome adventure, Sal! Looks like you had tons of fun. Glad you got to claim the best bed...that is so important when staying at hotels. And how mean of your family not to order room service for you! I hope they didn't get any either. Sheesh! Did you like to swim? Hope it wasn't too hot of a day for you...I've been melting here. Glad you are home safe!
Love,
Payton

What a wonderful adventure. I hope you liked the hotel and eventually got yourself some room service.
That beach and the lake look so cool and refreshing. I just want to jump right through the screen and got for a little swim.
Licks,

Woo! That looks like fun! I bet my pug would love the beach & she'd probably try to bite the waves, lol~ Keep cool, buddy!

Glad to see you enjoying your bed (Maggie owned mine while she was here), your folks definitely have some denial about that kibble, good thing you educated them about room service!

That looks like a lot of fun!
We'll stick to the pool, thank you. The sand here gets really hot and the waves are really big. Plus, there's been some sharks in our area! No thank you.

Hey Sal, we missed you. Glad to see you're having fun. Love the last pic!

I see you were sunning your pug buns. Did you see any cute boys in speedos? Yeah, that is a joke because NO ONE looks good in those things. Yuck. Anyway, looks like you had a great time except for the kibble. That is just wrong! Good luck digging the sand out of your folds.
