Win a Date with Your Dog: Mercury Canine Cruise GIVEAWAY

Read to the bottom to find out how to win an architectural cruise with your pup!
Besides being able to step outside sans winter snoods, there are a couple of summer mainstays that we always look forward to: Chicago's Pride ParadeShakespeare in the Park (last weekend!), and the  Mercury Canine Cruise.
This summer has been especially busy for us, working most weekends since we've started The Laboratory (though I guess we can't really complain about being at Hogwarts, training dragons, and dodging zombies all day!) so we were especially excited to find out that the Canine Cruise has expanded from just one day to offering cruises on both Saturday and Sunday mornings!
Living here, we tend to take Chicago's amazing architecture for granted, but this 90-minute cruise takes you down the Chicago River, through Lake Michigan and past Navy Pier telling tales of Chicago history and lore. I always recommend the architectural tours as the #1 thing to do for anyone visiting Chicago. We love this tour because it's something we can do along with the pups and still appreciate the amazing city we live in.
The boat has enough room for each family and dog to have their own bench (this shows it a bit more)so you won't be sitting next to a strange dog. Though waiting while you're standing and waiting to board the boat dogs will be closer together as you make your way through the winding-line thing and some people don't give a lot of space.
 It's also good to get there earlier, or make reservations, as we know some dates have sold out (though this may not be as much of a problem since they added a day.)
We were looking forward to our annual visit, and we were so excited when the Mercury Canine Cruise invited us to come as their guests AND they are generously giving away Canine Cruise tickets to 2 lucky dog families.
Each of the winners will receive tickets for 2 humans and 2 pups. Winners will be able to choose the date of your cruise (and we would love to coordinate and meet up if it works out!)

I LOVE the Two Pitties In The City - they are the best tour guides for me & my Max!
(& I think he will dig a boat ride too!)

I am nowhere near Chicago and am not commenting to enter. I just wanted to say that your puppies are so cute on their cruise! I know you are busy, but I miss hearing about their adventures.

What a great idea! We live in Grand Rapids, MI but we would love to take a trip and participate in the Mercury Canine Cruise with our pup Tanner!
