Weekend in Connecticut- Part 1

We're packed and ready and hitting the Connecticut!

Due and his peeps have spent an entire week relaxing at a lake house in Bethlehem, CT.
Mom and I headed up to join them for the weekend.

The most important word being LAKE of course.

(NOTE: Abbs was allowed to de-cone for the drive once she settled into the car)

Check out this lake. I was so excited I ran ahead and forgot to let Mom take off the cone.
I just had to check things out. A dock - a canoe - a LAKE.

Oops. Guess I should have waited for the de-coning before jumping in!

Due is NOT a fan of the water - so he had to check me over once I was back safely on the dock.

Then it's back to the deck for the rubdown.
Mom gave me a serious toweling off. Due wanted no part of this. Per vet's instructions Mom dried me off and then some! I could lay here all afternoon for a rubdown. The ears were flushed and cleaned. I was then allowed to dry off in the sunshine - au natural.
Yes - this is the portrait of one Happy Dog!

We had a great time with Due and the Peeps. We got home a few hours ago and promise to post more pictures of our adventures tomorrow.

Time to nap. Weekends in Connecticut are exhausting!

Connecticut ROCKS - momma grew up there and the moste beloved NYC. but i gotta scold ya for jumpin' in with the cone on....almost as bad as wearing a vest.
Be safe, be happy, swim until the sun goes down.
