Door County: A Doggy Dream Vacation

By Comiskey Wence
Are you looking for a fun place to go this summer? How about Door County, WI? My people took me and Ella there recently and we had the best time! We left the cats at home since they are boring and just lay around all the time. Plus, they don’t like riding in the car like me and Ella do. The three-hour drive to Sturgeon Bay was exciting! When we got there, our people unpacked the car, while we were busy exploring the house that they rented for us. There were lots of different rooms to sniff around and check out. I loved all the big windows overlooking the woods. The air was so fresh and all we could hear were the sounds of nature. After we got settled, our people chauffeured us around the area and we saw wild turkeys and deer for the first time! I have to admit; those turkeys are kind of scary looking! They were bigger than Ella!
On the second day, we took our people for a very long walk through Potawatomi State Park. We saw more deer… but thankfully no turkeys. We hiked deep into the forest, where there were all kinds of new sights, smells, and sounds to explore. We were exhausted afterwards, so we went back to the house to take a nap. The bed was so huge that we even let our people sleep in it too! The cabin was very peaceful and we couldn’t help but relax all weekend long. Even Ella was able to relax and stop barking for once! I think it’s because there was nothing for her to bark at. It was nice to have some peace and quiet. Me and Ella really enjoyed gazing every morning into the woods behind the house and just listening to the birds chirp.

On our last day there, our people took us on a scenic drive from Sturgeon Bay to Gills Rock. Along the way, we passed through several little towns. Fish Creek and Sister Bay were very busy with lots of people. We also
got to see a restaurant that had goats on the roof! We stopped in Sister Bay and tried some home-made ice cream which was very yummy! On the way back we stopped in Egg Harbor and went for a walk around the marina.

Well, that concludes our vacation in Door County. There were lots of fun things for Ella and me to do, like riding in the car, walking in the woods, having an infinite number of trees to pee on. It really doesn’t get any better! The best part though, was that we were with our people the whole time. It was a doggie dream vacation!

We rented the Black Bear Lodge in Sturgeon Bay, WI. It was very affordable and I would highly recommend it. To check out this and other pet friendly rentals in Door County, visit:
