Back from the Beach

We have just returned from our trip to the beach.
Both dogs were excited to be reunited with the cream grainy stuff that is fun to dig up - sand of course.
Our Male Kangal Mix especially gets excited, when he hears the noise of the waves crashing he knows we are at the most fun place ever - the beach. He happily runs along smelling every smell and scent there is possible and our Pointer dashes off to find a prized stone to collect.
The sky is blue hardly any clouds and the sun is warm, there is nothing better than the free drink of salty sea water that is on offer for them both. They are so hot that even the salt does not put them off .
Our boy is just getting used to the sea, he is a little afraid of the waves crashing in but has braved his fears after seeing our Pointer swimming out to get her ball, so he now stands a little further in the sea with all his paws in the water. And we make a game out of it for him and instead of him fearing the waves, he gets excited every time they they come rolling in.
Our girl is always on a mission and has to be doing something like retrieving her ball, jumping around, nudging you or dropping the ball for you to throw, so as you can imagine very energetic.
Whereas our boy likes nothing more than to dig himself a very big hole in the shade to lie in.
Everyone is completly tired tonight after returning from the beach and the dogs, lucky for them have a nice long snooze and dream of their adventures while we prepare dinner.


  1. Woof! Woof! Golden HELLO! Golden thanks for visiting my blog n becoming a blog follower. I LOVE going to the beach too but can't swim caused I'm allergic to the lake water. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. Hmm, not sure if you will get two comments now as blogger went a bit odd just then.
    So will try again....

    Hi there,

    Thank you for the blog visit and comments, sorry it has taken us so long to return the visit back to you.

    It is lovely taking the dogs to the beach when they love it so much, ours get so excited the minute they smell the sea air. :D

    It is a lovely day for the humans too, we really enjoy a walk along the beach and watching our two have so much fun there. :)
