Tired Puppy!

The beach is a fine place to tire out a young puppy. A tired puppy is a good puppy is true and this young one will be out of trouble for a while.

New Friends!

The best part about the beach, for many dogs, is the opportunity to meet and greet other dogs. They get to romp , sniff and play to their heart's content.

It is not time to go!

Leaving the beach is the hardest thing. When the day is done, most of us have to drag or carry our dogs off the beach. Reminds me of when I was little , my parents had at least one screaming child to carry at the end of the day at the beach.

Celebrate the sunrise!

Early morning at the beach is wonderful. Most people are still tucked in their beds, and only the runners and other dog owners are out. Our dogs help keep us on a regular schedule, there is no denying a dog that needs to go!

Stepping Out!

Labs love the water ! No matter what the size of the wave, they want to go out. It is up to us to make sure they are safe at the beach. Remember to watch for currents and most of all, watch for signs they are tiring.

Stick Time!

Some of the best toys are free. This GSD was happy to find a stick that his owner could throw. If you forget the buoy, find a stick!

Schipperke Smile

It is not often that you see Schipperkes out and about, but this was the only one I have ever seen at the beach. Obviously , he was one happy dog!

Where is the toy?

Dang waves sure can make it hard to find the toy. Some of them slip away never to found on this shore again. I always wonder if some other lucky dog down the coast gets a gift from Neptune when the toy washes up later

That wave looks big!

Keeping a safe distance this JRT checks out the wave action. Later he leapt right in and swam with the big boys.

Darcy has not let the loss of her lovely tail curtail her swimming. Even with out her Lab rudder , she is able to get out and get the buoy!

Can you dig it?

These girls needed a helping paw to start their sand castle. Molly was more than willing to help, or should I say hinder?

Irish Setter Retriever!

This Irish Setter is enjoying the beach. He was quite a mess when he got done swimming, but it was worth it!

I'm not leaving!

NO, it can't be true, it is not time to leave! Be glad I am a puppy now, when I am full grown it might be hard to make me leave when I don't want to!

Best Friends!

No matter the weather, the beach is the best place to be with your best friend.

Scoop the Poop!

If you love taking your dog to the beach, be sure to scoop the poop! Take along extra bags so you can pick up what others left behind. I once had to pick up the poop of a St Bernard because the owner forgot a bag. Try that with little sandwich bags which are perfect for a JRT size poop!
The biggest reason for closing beaches to dogs is the poop, so please scoop the poop!

Heaven is a buoy!

Nothing is better than a buoy at the beach!

Looking Pretty!

Some dogs enjoy just looking pretty at the beach. Actually this Weimer was just taking a break from a fun run down the beach.

Greetings at the beach

I can spend hours just watching dogs greet each other. They gallop up to each other, take a sniff , then either they have found a new friend to romp with or they leave looking for for the perfect playmate.

Don't let age get in your way!

Richie Rich may be getting up there in years, but he doesn't let that stop him! Where there is a will , there is a way!

Come on, take me for a walk!

This golden has gotten desperate, the dang guy isn't paying attention, and the puppy wants to go for a walk.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Roll with the flow

Nothing can be finer than rolling on a dead crab. Finding it is great, rolling in it is better and going home smelling to high heaven is priceless!
