One of Greta’s favorite things to do when we take a trip to St. Louis is visit my Grandparents house. They live in a tiny town in Southern Illinois on a secluded lake and every time we take a trip there, Greta likes to take a dip in the lake. We often let her off the leash for short periods of time so she can chase her tennis ball. She loves jumping in the lake after the ball and bringing it back.
I felt a little sad when we took her there this time because I didn’t think she would be able to swim now that she’s a tripod. But I was hoping she would prove me wrong (as she always seems to do), so I brought along a retractable leash and started in the very shallow part of the lake.

Unfortunately, Levi isn’t quite so trustworthy off the leash and he has no interest in playing fetch, so he didn’t get to go swimming. But he had plenty of fun during his own special walk around the lake.
Here are a few pics of both of them enjoying their first trip to the lake together:
They were so tired on the way home, Greta was asleep sitting up before we could even wind down the long gravel road to leading out of the lake community.
And before long, they were both passed out on top of each other as usual.
Before we hit the road back to Chicago, Levi, Greta and George snuck in one more nap on my Mom’s couch.
Until Levi decided it was time to get on the road!
Another successful road trip with the two pups! Looking forward to the next.
