Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Bode goes to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes! (lots of pics)   Wed Jun 12, 2013 7:02 pm

This past weekend we went up north with my family because my dad did the M-22 Challenge Triathlon. It was Me, Anthony, Bode, my Mom, Dad, their dog Riley, and my Aunt. We stayed at a dog friendly resort and got to do a lot of fun stuff. The M-22 Challenge is a big race in Michigan and is cool because instead of swimming, you do a paddle sport (most people kayak but there were a few SUP'ers).

We drove up Friday to Glen Arbor, where we were staying and explored a little bit. This part of Michigan is just gorgeous. Saturday morning we watched the race and then that afternoon we went into Leland where there was a food and wine festival going on. Sunday we went for a paddle on the lake and then headed home.

Bode did so good the whole time. The weather was perfect. Mid 60s to low 70s and everywhere is pretty dog friendly, so he got to go most places with us. He got so much attention and did really well with all the kids grabbing at him (he hasn't been around kids all that much). We did try to take him out in the canoe for the first time, and while it wasn't a disaster, it definitely wasn't a success. He was moving around and shifting a lot, so we went back in because we didn't want to tip.

Well, here are some pictures of our trip, including my dad in the race. He finished in the top third overall (out of 1000) and right in the middle of his age group. Anthony is training to be able to do it next year.

I am so used to there being "like" buttons on posts and photos. I would click it if these photos had one! Love hearing about people traveling with their doggies Smile
