OK thank you for all the info. Madisyn stays leashed all the time unless we are at home in our fenced in yard. She tends not to like to come in or come back when you call her unless you say "come get a biscuit" We might try there Saturday. I havent decided yet. Depends on the weather and how many more baths I have to give her before Friday. Since last friday she has had 3.Im trying not to do damage to her skin but she gets so nasty. She jumps in her pool and rolls in the dirt and comes out completely filthy. I even had to get a new collar for her b/c of it becoming just plain nasty and to the point where it looks dirty even when its clean.

I would say that its about the same as ocean water, really. Without the salt, that is.

IS it an actual dog "beach"?? Are there alot of people that bring their pups?

Oh ya had to go and get me started...;)

They close the beaches due to high e.coli counts. e.coli is a fecal coliform bacteria (it lives in fecal matter) that in and of itself isn't really a big problem but is an indicator of other types of intestional critters that CAN cause some problems.

Here's the thing with the beach closings, they collect the water samples early in the morning. The test is a 24 hour culture test. If the culture shows high bacteria, they close the beach. So, they'r closing the beach on the day AFTER the bacteria was collected, you see what I'm saying? They never know what the ACTUAL bacteria counts are until the day after they close the beach.

And that is only certain beaches that have that problem. The e.coli comes from the poop of birds and stuff. So, its highest at Washington Park and some of the beaches in the state park.

I understand you being concerned about your first pup! But, don't worry about Lake Michigan. She'll be fine swimming in the lake. And so will you! It doesn't get warm until like, the end of July or August, though! So, it might be fun for Madi but not you!!!

Thanks for the information. I guess it ouldnt hurt to let Madie go in. Its probably no better than ocean water. And I already know she loves water. She has a little wading pool (the kid kind) and its filled up. We were outside playing Sunday and she jumped in and started splashing and trying to eat the water. She did the same thing last night when we were outside. Shes so goofy

hahah...well, there are bacteria in the lake, but unless the dogs drink a whole bunch of lake water, there isn't any problems. And even then, they just get runny poo for a little while if anything. Ask Julie, her Dane Gweck insists on drinking boatloads of the water every time he goes to the beach!

Don't worry...I used to work for the Health Department and now for the Soil and Water Conservation District, so I'm an "expert" on this issue! And we've been taking Cabeza to the beach for about 6 years now!

Did you just move to the area?

I moved here in Dec 04. And I have never been in a lake period...let alone here. All I know is that the close certain beaches alot during the summer. Im originally from here...but we moved when I was 2 and was raised in FL. I spent like 19 yrs in FL (Im 23 now). And this is MY first puppy. We`ve had dogs my whole life but Madisyn is my first just being mine and only mine and I just tend to worry about her. If shes eating enough,gaining enough weight,getting appropriate l that fun stuff.

Do you want an actual big pool that your Lab can swim in or 1 that they can play in? I have a little kids wading pool that I fill and let my 16 wk old Goldne play in and she loves it.

Of dog doesn't play. He just kind of wades and lumbers around like a bear. He's sort of curmudgeonly.

Is it safe to let them go into the Lake?NO harmful bacteria or anything? Sorry Im just so weird about Madie. I seriously havent left her alone since I got her when Im not working. I even asked her vet if I could see the kennel area she`ll be in when I have to get her fixed. What can I say....shes my baby. Whenever you want to meet up just let me know.

Where are you coming from?

Sorry...just saw your post in the Meet and Greet thread.

you're in Michigan City? Well, here's what you do. Do you know where Brandt's is? By the Lighthouse Mall on 12? Its a pet store. They also sell Frosty Paws by the cup for like, a dollar. I always walk over and get Cabeza one..

Anyway, you pass Brandt's headed west on 12. When 12 splits off right by Mount Baldy, you take Beverly Dr. (It goes to the right, 12 continues on toward the left) Go all the way down to Central Avenue and turn right. The beach is all the way at the end of the road. There's a parking lot and stuff.

Its great!

Well maybe sometime we could meet up there and let the dogs play....if you want
