Summer in Maine was made for Labrador Retrievers. Especially Labs who live near water. And this summer, our boys can't get enough of the invitingly cold waters of Blue Hill Bay. Harry likes to wade and sniff around piles of seaweed, while Mitchell prefers more active water sports--retrieving sticks is top of his list. Now that it's finally stopped raining, they're delighted they can get wet on their own terms.
When they're not happily beached in Brooklin, the boys can usually be found walking the streets of Portland's Old Port and West End. They've adjusted well to a combination of country and city life, although they could probably do without the long car trip between Two Dog store sites. We've learned that the best way to chase away the traveling dog blues is a stop at the Pine Tree State Arboretum in Augusta. If you're visiting Maine this season, check it out.
Here's what else is up at Two Dog Press:
