  1. Will, where did you take the family to the dog beach in Michigan? Do you have any suggestions about dog beaches to visit where both the dogs and people can swim? Maybe you could do a guide to travel spots you have been to with your family. Thanks,

    • We’re right on the Michiana border – between Michigan City and New Buffalo. The beach we go to isn’t much of a tourist destination right now since the lake levels are so high, but as far as I know most of the local beaches are dog-friendly in off hours. Usually that means before 11am and after 6, so you can catch both sunrise and sunset

  2. I’ve always found weight management a challenge with RR’s..I mainly feed raw, with some biscuits…thanks for the reminder … you’re right…they are ALWAYS hungry!!!!!!

  3. Yes I agree it’s easy to indulge that doggy face wanting what you are eating too and they also have a never ending appetite! But I just really wanted to say I love the part of the video where Lincoln is talking to the two sleeping pups whether they are responding to him or not! LOL

  4. I have always battled weight with Khoi. Neeka got down to a nice lean weight, then got into some veggie sticks (a LOT of veggie sticks) I inadvertently left on the counter, and she bloated up. She looked pregnant. Now we‚Äôre back to work. Their vet once told me, an slightly underweight dog is healthier than an at weight dog. I guess that would help counter binge eatingūüėŹNow it‚Äôs the season to keep Khoi out of the vegetable garden and blueberries. My work is never done.
