smith mountain lake: Boating with Dogs....Keeping Fur Babies Safe at Smith Mountain Lake - 07/28/14 11:07 AM
We have two happy little dogs that LOVE to boat with us at Smith Mountain Lake. Sometimes I think our Westie, Duncan,  will jump straight into the lake from the dock, he gets so excited!

Much like safe boating with children, boating with pets takes preparation. If you're bringing your four legged friends along, you need to think about their safety and comfort as well.  We purchased Pet Lifejackets for our little terriers and I love that they have handles. Makes it easier to pull the dogs out of the lake after swimming and to transport them onto and off … (6 comments)

A conservation easement was recorded in late January on land in Bedford and Pittsylvania Counties. The easement is co-held by Virginia Outdoors Foundation and the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.
 

 
Most of Smith Mountain is covered by the easement (see arrow above). If you’ve been to … (2 comments)

Two weeks ago, "Bob The Boat Guy" did some work on our 18' Sea Doo so we decided to take it out for a late afternoon run and have dinner at one of the restaurants where you can dock and eat overlooking the lake. What a way to spend an afternoon. We thought.

Unfortunately, Bob neglected to put the boat in the water to TEST his work before he called to say that will be $405.00, thank you very much. The engines still didn't want to catch and we had trouble getting one to turn over but eventually we were on … (29 comments)
