Basti, a 3-year-old labrador/collie mix, got to make a pit stop in Superior Tuesday, Aug. 4, to play a little fetch in the Superior Bay.

Basti was joined by a few friends as they walked along the boardwalk on Barker's Island.

"He started whining when he saw the water as we drove through Ashland, so we figured we'd stop here," said Anja Nienow, of Minocqua, Basti's owner.
