I think this dog could be fired for sleeping...just kidding. The name of this lake escapes me but it was a picturesque day at the Laurentian Mountains.
This dog enjoyed a good swim and went back to the water several times while we were there. We even managed to chat with the owner. Moose fountain A deer crosses our…
