I cannot believe that my life has deteriorated to the point where I can say that I've had Bobby for more than a month and a half and today is the first time that he's been to the beach.
That it's been that long since I've been to the beach. It was a great day to go though, and we had a really good time - Bobby had a fantastic time.
It was also the first time that I've let Bobby go off-leash and he did really well - although at the end he didn't seem like he really wanted to be leashed back up - so I think I'll be careful next time and surprise him a bit more about when it's time to go back on leash - but overall he did really well.
He certainly had a great time running around the beach, and tonight he's completely passed out from being tired, which is super.
Charlie and Daisy had a good time too - which was nice to see.
And they both were being very photogenic, which was good for me. Charlie never has a bad day as far as the camera is concerned.
And Bobby proved that he not only likes to dig in my backyard - he also likes to dig at the beach too - I am going to have a bed full of sand tonight - you'll see later in this post that there was also some rolling action too.
All the time we were there I only saw this 1/2 of a buoy - so the buoy booty was very bad, nothing at all to take home with us.
And I guess I must have felt like taking pictures of flowers today -
Because I took photos of these different flowers that we came upon
I think the purple ones were the prettiest of course
This is Bobby sitting for a treat - even at the beach we were working on our sit
And this is Daisy saying - "I don't have to sit for a treat because I am perfect in every way!"
This is Charlie and Daisy sharing a quiet moment - except for the fact that I'm taking a photo of it
This is a shot of our own private beach - on a beautiful, warm, sunny day - only in Nova Scotia would you be able to find a barren white sand sunny beach 15 minutes outside of the capital city for the province - it really is shangri-la here isn't it?
Daisy was being so cute today, I could feel her nose on the back of my leg almost the whole time we were at the beach for some reason - although she's always been like that - she's always been a dog who's stayed close by when we're out on hikes, and maybe it's just because I was wearing shorts today that I could actually feel her nose making contact with the back of my leg - or maybe it was because I had my treat pouch attached to my belt today? Who really knows!
These next photos are the rolling that I was talking about at the beginning of the post - and this sand was extremely stinky for some reason - very sodiumy.... the dogs loved it.
Charlie looks like - "I've fallen and I can't get up!"
Charlie being perfect, once again
Here's a slideshow of all 94 photos from today...
