I've been wanting to go for awhile, but things just haven't worked out, and the part of Crystal Crescent that I go to disappears at high tide - so the timing has to be right - and today the timing did - so off we went
It was interesting though from past times that we went to the beach - I can really tell that the dogs have gotten old -
Usually when we arrived Charlie and Daisy would immediately start running and around and wrestling with each other and just acting crazy happy - but not today - as soon as we got there and got down to the beach - all Charlie did was lay down - like as if the long walk from the car was enough exercise for him and he was done.
Daisy was up for having some fun - or at least she was up for having some treats - the first shot at the beginning of this post is what Buttercup did a lot of - rolling around in the sand - she had a blast -
but Charlie was just interested in laying down
so that's what he did
Buttercup had a good time though
It really seems like Charlie is in pain, I'm not quite sure what to do about him, everytime I try to give him glucosamine or any of that kind of stuff he gets the shits like you would not believe.
This is Daisy after she had buried 1/2 a salmon sandwich that I had just given her because she'd been such a good girl - while we were at the beach - a couple people arrived with 2 labs - and Charlie and Buttercup went off barking like crazy at them - but because so many people are afraid of Daisy at some point a few years ago I just gave up having her interact with other dogs - and what I have done with her is what everyone should have with their dogs - a drop dead recall (and yummy salmon sandwiches) - so instead of running up to them she came back to me - but because before I got her she was left to starve to death - instead of eating really high value items, she buries them - so if you go to Crystal Crescent Beach - and you're hungry - there's a really yummy salmon sandwich buried in the sand there right now!
