This past weekend, Trycia and I were in wisconsin visiting her family and we spent a good amount of time on the water. Whenever we have Roxy on a boat, and she LOVES going on the boat, we always have her life jacket on. We use the jacket because if she ever fell off, getting her back into the boat would be almost impossible without the handle on the back of her jacket. This past weekend, there was a news story on ABC 7 in Chicago about a dog that fell off the boat in the Chicago River and swam to shore because he had a lifejacket on. The video from the story is below! I bring this up, not as a sales pitch for the lifejackets we sell at Bubbly Paws, but to keep dogs safe on all the Minnesota lakes and rivers this summer.
