Holidays - Part III

We took our boat down to Montana with us as we planned on doing a bit of fishing.   We ended up on Whitefish Lake for the afternoon and fished til dark.    It was quite hot, so I was glad to have an umbrella on the boat and cooling blankets for the dogs.

The scenery was spectacular and I could have just sat and looked at the view all day - hey, I did LOL

Once we anchored the boat I took the dog's life vests off as they were so hot and just kept a tether on them.  They were so much more comfortable.

Molly is such a cutie…..she doesn't mind the boat at all

Zack keeps an eye out for, well, everything….

especially those fish, but when we catch one, he wants nothing to do with it.   Pete caught a little cutthroat trout, I hadn't seen one of them before so that was cool

Zack loves to sniff the air and all the mountain and fishy smells - he was in heaven

Eyes peeled again, the closer to the shore the more intense the search gets

Zack spied a little duck so I kept a tight hold - Just in case LOL

It's not a great photo but this was the little duck that kept everyone's attention for a bit

We were on the lake til dusk and Capt. Zack guided Pete back to the dock like a pro :) 

I looked at the wonder scenery as we got back

It was a great day - I could live down there that's for sure

Holidays - Part II

We learned Molly is a dream to travel with, accepting and settling in all the new places.   Zack, was well, Zack LOL

Whitefish has an awesome fenced in off leash dog park that now has a separate area for little dogs, doggy water fountains, a pond, a small natural agility course and a pavilion for the people.  

There were not too many dogs out the day we were there but there was a few.    Zack found a few dogs to run round with - he got chased pretty hard - even by the cute little shih tzuey thing !!!!

Molly was just happy to stay with her people, she doesn't play like Zack and even Zack is more picky who he plays with nowadays, but at least they got some off leash time which was great.   They ran a lot.

Of course, found smells to roll in

and found someone else's tennis ball and scarpered off with it, little bugger LOL

Who me ?

Great time at the dog park, now off to another adventure…..  Part III to follow

Holidays - Part I

Here we go again, I cannot fit everything into one post so I will be doing several posts to show what a wonderful weeks vacation we had in and around Whitefish, Montana.  It was a first for us, just Pete, me and the dogs.

We rented a cabin in the woods near Whitefish, Montana.   It was lovely, away from it all with a wonderful view of the mountains.  TV didn't work and WiFi was iffy but it didn't matter, it was nice to disconnect from the world for a bit.   Here is a photo of the outside of the cabin and the view we had every morning.   Can't complain that's for sure.

I was a little nervous of bears so every time the dogs barked I jumped and looked around.  All in my head as we didn't see one all week :)

On the first day we did a lot of exploring in the Town of Whitefish.  It was very quaint and "outdoorsy" loved it.  We found wonderful walking paths along the river and walked for miles.   

Zack had to stop and look for fish, Pete has taught him well :)

We then walked from the river into the Town and came across this quaint Fly Fishing Shop.  Of course Pete went in to look around while Zack stood guard outside.

 Actually he licked everybody to death that entered the store LOL 

So many more photos and stories to tell of our trip, more walking, doggy park, fishing, Glacier National Park etc.    Part II to come soon…..
