Hiya it’s me the blogging Border Collie! It is my turn! Border Collies rule!!
One fine day Far Side and I deserted Far Guy (he had company) and we met a gal that bought a bunch of special order carvings. We met up at Height of Land…at the public access … Far Side can never remember the names of buildings but she knew you had to turn between the yellow house and the old deserted beer joint on the north side of the road.
Minnesota has many of these Public Access areas on lakes, you can launch a boat here and there is plenty of room adjacent to park a boat trailer whilst you are off on the lake.
Far Side had to check it out…and declare it safe.
I love the water…but only up to my belly!
This year some lakes have a yucky snotty looking blue green algae bloom. If a dog laps up that water…they can die. There was a news story not very long ago about a Golden Retriever that died right after playing ball in the water and drinking the water. The algae carries a toxin that can affect dogs, livestock and other animals.
So dog owners beware! Carry water in a dish for your four legged friends and if the water looks questionable…do not allow your pet in the water.
We do live in the Land of Sky Blue Waters…but you have to use common sense.
Height of Land Lake has White Water Lilies ( Nymphaea tuberosa)
I thought Far Side might swim out to get a better photo…but she used her zoom lens instead.
