This past weekend Travis and I were invited to spend the weekend with friends at a lake house in Alabama. I have always wanted to take the pugs swimming to see if they like it but I don't know a dog friendly swimming hole in Nashville, and since pugs overheat so fast I don't want to take them on a long trip and risk heat exhaustion. This was the perfect place! The lake house was right on the water so I could pop Priscilla right back in the air conditioner if she got too hot! Phyllis didn't get to come because she doesn't like big dogs and there was a big sweet golden retriever there the whole weekend (you'll see her later!)
I was still a little worried about the heat, but the vet told me Priscilla has the best nostrils she's ever seen on a pug so I figured it was worth a go. I took way too many pictures. And I'm probably posting too many. But she is so cute!!!!
She much preferred riding out of the water on a float. I think it made her feel more secure. Here she is with Josh, the birthday boy! His parents own the lake house and I'm so thankful they let us use it for the weekend!
After a little while paddling around I put her back on the boat (with the life jacket of course). A few minutes later my friends were yelling that she had fallen off and went under! I panicked but thankfully the life jacket pulled her right back up. She had wandered through the open door at the front and somersaulted off! Poor thing! Thankfully, it didn't seem to phase her much.
We swam a little longer then rode back to our dock. Look at that wet baby!
Look at her swimming! She wagged her tail while she did it!

She seemed most comfortable in this float so I pushed her around in it for a long time.
After drying off she seemed so white and fluffy like a little bunny. She was a little cold so I wrapped her in a blanket and went outside. She got to sleep with us, which never happens. I think that was her favorite part of the weekend. She was very good and only barked at me once, to put her in between us. So sweet.
Ugh I can't get over her cute little face!
She slept the whole 3 hour drive home wrapped in a blanket. What a big weekend for my girl!
