Monday's Guest- Maverick- a Rat Terrier!
Maverick is our 8 year-old Rat Terrier and we had him since a pup. At home, he spends most of his time chasing squirrels in the backyard, barking at passing trucks, or just snoozing in the sun. We occasionally take him to the dog friendly beach in Carmel, CA but it's usually too cold and he hates the cold. So, when we do have the opportunity, we take him on vacation with us by driving down to San Diego. The San Diego Dog Beach is usually warm and hopping with dogs of all sizes. At first, Maverick is usually timid about going into the water and is satisfied just chasing other dogs along the water's edge. But after watching his furry friends having a wet and wild time, he ventures in slowly and ultimately goes full-bore having a splashing good time playing in the waves and fetching tennis balls thrown into the water. After hours of fun,Maverick is usually exhausted and look forward to a satisfying nap back at the hotel.- AV
