Boating Safety Has Gone to the Dogs!


We are fortunate enough to live close to Lake Erie, which while not ideal for swimming, can be a ton of fun on the boat. Wherever we go, the dogs come too (the horses we leave at home)! Whether it’s a road trip, or a boat trip, we like to have everyone together to enjoy […]
