MN Pit Stop: Largest Ball of Twine

 

_DSC0848

Has there ever been a destination so close, yet you fail to visit? This is the case for my humans. Just 1.5 hours away in a small town lives the World’s Largest Twine Ball and my humans have never seen it. You might think to yourself, 1.5 hours away is a long drive. However, they are in that area every couple of months and fail to take the short detour to visit the ball.

I’m happy to say we have crossed this destination off our bucket list!

Minnesota Dogs of Instagram Meet Up

Happy Friday Everyone! I’m so excited today is finally here so I can share this past weekend mini adventure my humans and I took to Itasca State Park. I’m happy to report that I’m successfully keeping my State¬†Park New Year’s Resolution! If you don’t know, I set a resolution to visit a different state park each month and Itasca is my February State Park. Itasca State Park was about a 4.5 hour drive for us heading north. Below is a map showing you where the park is located. View Post

Beginning of the Mississippi River

M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I!

Have you ever wondered where the Great Mississippi River begins? Well, this past weekend I had the opportunity to meet up with several other Minnesota Instagram dogs at Itasca State Park where the Mississippi River starts. Here is a sneak peak what is to come on Friday’s post where I will share more great scenic pictures and the pups I met.¬† View Post

Lake Fun

Since there was a break in the rain and the temperature is still warm, my humans decided to hang out at the lake. Although I live in Minnesota, sadly I don’t visit the lakes much. But, was really excited to tag along.

I really enjoyed watching the minnows and sunfish swimming around.

And before you knew it, I was jumping in the water and exploring.

I’m happy my humans always have a frisbee in their car for emergency pick stops. You just never know when it will come in handy. As you can see I’m working on my “doggy paddle” skills.

What a nice, peaceful evening we had. The lake was nice a clam. Sadly it was time to head home. On the way, I sure was smelling good, like a wet dog good. 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Don’t forget to enter my current giveaway for your chance to win three bags of Walkies! Fit Bites dog treats. Here is the direct LINK to enter.

My First Offical Date

Since my family bought new camera, My GBGV Life’s Chief Blog Photographer has been a life saver. She has been gracious and patient enough to help my mom and me figure out our new toy. She also asked if we wanted to join her and Bailie (their Chief of Public Relations dog) on an outing. We jumped all over the opportunity for our moms to hang out and play with their cameras. During which time Bailie and I were able to have some bonding time just the two of us.

We ended up going to Hot Sam’s Antiques just south of the cities (cities is another term for the Twin Cities). When we first entered the property there was an abundance of metal, rust, and just stuff in every nook and cranny of the property.

At first, my mom and I were overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. It was a good thing Bailie and her mom where with us to help guild us in a general direction.

We would only make it several feet before there was another great photo opt. And my mom made sure we stopped at just about every single one. Bailie was a great teacher showing me it was okay to get dirty and jump in or on the different props.

Like a good gentleman, I let her sit on the driver seat of this awesome motorcycle, while I sat in the side car. Well, actually I was unable to get my fluffy butt in the driver’s seat. So by default Bailie got that spot. 

What do you think should be drive this down to the BlogPaws conference next summer? All we are missing is our sunglasses and scarfs. 

We had plenty of time in between each photo opt to sit down and talk while our moms played with their cameras. I really go to know this young lady and she sure is funny.

Look at this face, isn’t she gorgeous?

After two and a half hours of talking, taking photos, and exploring it was time to say our goodbyes. It sure was hard to say goodbye after having such a fun morning with Bailie. But we knew we will see each other soon. While our moms weren’t looking we gave each other head hugs and a kiss on the cheek. And departed ways.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend that is full of Kodak moments. We will see you on Sunday for the start of my 2nd Blogiversary Week long Paw-ty!
