We didn't even know Aitkin County exhisted let alone how many lakes it has, bol - our mother is such and ignoramous!
It sounds very pretty much like Cumbria in England, that has lots of lakes, though not that many.

Priscilla said...

Wow, it's really wonderful to have so many lakes around. 365 lakes!!! An amazing number.

So, is there any plan for you to visit all the lakes in the near future? Each lake a day and make it a YEAR???

Gus said...

Oh wow...that's a lot of water for a Newfie to investigate!

we don't have that many lakes in our county but in the state of florida we have Largest Lake - Lake Okeechobee at 700 square miles
(the 2nd largest freshwater lake in the United States)
and 11,000 miles of waterways. does that count Rem?

jen said...

Wow! That is a cool fact, I had no idea a county could have that many lakes:)

Morning Remy,
We love Minnesota for all its little lakes, and Michigan for the three big ones that Mom and Dad take us to.

Have great week-end and tell Ozabella we said Howdy.

Love
Your BroLeo, Grady and Mom.

Ms. ~K said...

Hey Rem,
I just read your comment on Jack's blog about not having any "big" friends to play with...
I completely understand because Sas and Zack really don't play with me, due to my size...
Sure wish you and I lived closer, we could be playmates!
Your big-boned friend,
Buddy

JC said...

Chester said...

Wow! Do you like to swim? Thanks for stopping by my blog Remmie (do you mind nicknames?), it was so nice to meet you! Love your blog too, and I'm not a follower :-) Lick, Chester

JackDaddy said...

You are practically in Canada!!! You should go up there and show them what a cool dog you are!

Jacqueline said...

Hey, handsome Rem, you are always teaching us fun facts!...Happy Friday, sweet boy, we love you...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Madi and Mom said...

Oh my dogs Rem we had no idea there was so much water around you. I bet each and every lake has it's own beautiful scenery too!!

Mom and Dad didn't bring me any treats but they sure smelled funny all kinds of food aromas on them. You know what my sweet mom did? They walked through several livestock arenas...she was worried about bringing something bad in the house so they took off their shoes outside and sprayed them down with Clorox Anywhere.
I think she loves me!!!
Hugs Madi

Bruschi said...

What a cool fact! That is a lot of lakes Remy!! And I bet a huge chunk of the year, many of those turn to ice skating rinks!!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Wow, that really is a lot of lakes - do you think you can make it to one a day? We wonder if that is like an apple a day keeping the doctor away - never mind.

Happy Weekend.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Isn't your state motto "Land of 100,000,000,000 Lakes"? In New Mexico, we have like 3, and I think 2 are damed reservoirs! Jealous.

Lola said...

There's a lot of lakes up there. More than average. I think it was in your part of the country that my human brother and his band (he's recovering musician)played a festival called the 10,000 Lakes Festival once or twice. That's when we realized that your states kind of wrote the book on lakes.

lotsa licks, Lola

Maggie and Mitch said...

Our gram and gramp used to live in MN and mom visited once so she knows how absolutely beautiful your state is, Remington!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
