Lola Pug’s lifelong BFF and cousin, Roxy, is moving to the other side of the country shortly (cue the sadfaces at Casa Lola), so we invited the Little Miss and her people up to Lola’s northern playground for a weekend of adventuring and bonding before the big move.
One of the first things we all must do when faced with outdoor adventures is put on our hats and sunscreen, so Roxy reminded us all to do so before we set out….
The first order of the day was to have a little boating adventure, which Roxy took to like a …duck to water?
Lola, being used to such travel, was a little bit less impressed, but that also might have something to do with the fact that she’s rather grown out of her life jacket a little bit. (Middle age spread happens to the best of us, baby).
Not only did we have gorgeous sunshine and water, but we had jumping fish and giant aeries to be on the lookout for.
Once our not-quite-three-hour tour was done, we were all rather toasty, so we thought we’d bring the pugs to the water to cool down a bit.
Roxy has always been a bit of a water baby, so she was quite pleased with the refreshment.
Epic and proud, babygirl, epic and proud.
Lola, however, has *never* had a fondness for water OR being wet, so imagine my shock and temporary horror when THIS happened…
She stood in the water in a dreamy state, thoroughly enjoying every soothing moment of the cooling wetness.
When I finally coaxed her out of the water to come up on a rock with her cousin to watch some passing boats…
…she turned around and walked back INTO the water for a bit more spa action.
Which prompted me to call out… “WHERE IS MY PUG, AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH HER???”
We’re all back to normal now, I see….
Yes. That’s likely goose poop she’s smearing her wet face in.
That seemed to be enough adventuring for one day for these two, so we settled in for a little nap on the porch together.
Lola was a bit miffed that Roxy got her favourite chair…
…but we do these things for our friends. Especially when we might not see them again for a long, long time.
Love and kisses, little Roxy Pug. Here’s hoping we will get a chance to come and visit you in your new (and terribly exciting) coastal home before long.

What a sweet post. I am sure you your Mama will have lots of new adventures getting to visit Roxy in her new home. You are quite the well-traveled Pug. A little spa day never hurt anyone (I don’t know this for fact, but it could be true). You deserve a refreshing relaxation once in a while. xoxox and best wishes to Roxy!!
Lola, you looked really aquatic wading in that refreshing pool of water; and Roxy looked like her nickname should be Fish! I’m sorry to hear your BFF is going across the country from you, that is tough, but surely that will be an opportunity for you and your servants to explore a new place in the hopefully not too distant future!
So…..there is hope that Jo will re-discover her former love of water……
What great photos! Roxy did look especially stoic. I bet she was thinking about how much she’s going to miss you, LP.
Maybe Lola was so saddened at the thought of Roxy leaving that she temporarily lost her dislike of water. Or maybe she’s discovered exactly how awesome it is to be in cool water on a hot day!
We are sad that your friends are leaving. Although coastal living does have some serious perks (and not-perks depending on the coast). We hope they have a fantastic new place to call home.
