Luna’s Offbeat Adventures-Episode IV

Hi everyone! My name is Luna and I’m a very active and curious Labradoodle. I love to follow my dad on his history exploration adventures, so he decided to put a camera on me to record what I see while we’re hiking. It’s in its armoured housing, so the audio is muffled, the harness doesn’t always stay in the right spot and the GoPro can’t always compensate for my movements, so there are no awards for sound and cinematography here (seriously, it’s very shaky at times). It’s just raw, minimally edited video.

This episode took us to Kenogamisis Lake, which is just east of Geraldton, Ontario. To get to our hike, we had to travel by boat 8 kilometres up the lake to Devilfish Bay. The video shows my dad and my brother Noah putting the boat in the water and our ride up the lake. Unfortunately the day didn’t end well for me. My paws got torn up pretty bad on some sharp rocks, so dad had to carry me the last 2 kilometres back to the boat. I was out of action for a few days afterwards, but I’ve healed up and I’m as good as new!
