Almost everyday my parents and I have gone kayaking twice a day. Since our cottage is on a lake we can easily go anytime. There is a peak type spot across from us and we usually go there and back. The first day we brought the kayaks we tried bringing my smaller dog Luna but she kept crying and freaking out. There is a stray cat that keeps meowing at the door and any chance it has it runs in the house and starts eating the dog food. It once tried coming with me on the kayak but I had to push it off. I even had to put a puddle around me or walk in the water so it won’t rub up against me.
