Love the pictures of the ‘Dog Swim Spa’ in New Zealand!

Why should only people be blessed with the experience of a Hot Tub or Swim Spa?
I love that it is shared with dogs (I even saw a LAMB!) at the Templeton, New Zealand ‘Dog Swim Spa’! : )

Check out their photos…

Our 17 year old daschund Ginger, and I have spent many an hour Stand Up Paddleboarding together, but sadly, those days seem to be over. She doesn’t have the patience anymore. Understandable! She wants off as soon as we get on to the board.

HOWEVER, we’ve started including her for short blocks of time in the Swim Spa. We’ve taken two floats and created a platform high enough to keep her dry AND we’ve let her swim short distances in the water. She seems to enjoy it all!

Should I buy a 12-person Hot Tub or a Yacht with ONE?

That is the question! The answer, if you are anything like me is pretty simple – buy the HOT TUB!
I WOULD, however, take the 160 foot GTT 160 yacht though if offered to me!

After all…

“The “wellbeing” checklist ranges from a main-deck master stateroom with an open-air balcony on either side, to a full galley with breakfast bar fit for a professional chef or a serious home cook, to a movie lounge with a 75-inch screen and a bar. The aft main deck replicates a beach club, with a 12-person hot tub, a spa area and a gym. “

How much would winning a Grammy mean to Lil Nas X?

A LOT, it seems. reports that “Lil Nas X is up for 6 awards at the Grammys on Sunday and will lead a performance of “Old Town Road All-Stars” where he is set to bring his many “Old Town Road” collaborators to music’s biggest stage.”

BUT THAT isn’t even the big news! Haha

Lil Nas X declares that “if I win Best New Artist I’m gonna like, sit in a tub full of hot dogs and just like, I don’t know, just like go crazy you know?” –

That would be ‘hot dogs in a tub’ NOT ‘dogs in a hot tub’.
