... dogs at the beach

as much as i love beaches, as soon as you take a dog to the beach, the excitement factor pretty much doubles. i could spend hours at the beach just throwing a ball and watching a dog swim out to retrieve it.

the road to the beach

my parents' dog, layla, especially loves the beach. maybe, even, as much as i do.

she sometimes waits patiently for the ball to be thrown. but most times she plonks it down about 10 feet away from where you are standing and just barks until you walk over and get it. she knows who's boss.

leaving the beach

leaving the beach is always hard. the other day we forgot layla and had to go back. she had found some suckers kids and, using her cuteness and doggy wiles, no doubt, gotten them to throw the ball for her in our absence.

i also love watching dogs get bathed. it's all soapy soggy hairy doggy goodness.

i am pretty sure that layla doesn't like this part as much as i do.

well, maybe she does just a little.
