The big bathtub

Hey there everybody!!

I hope that you all have been having a good summer so far!! What are you doing?? Swimming? Hiking? Going on picnics? Mom & I went on a beach vacation last week & we had a blast!! Although, when she took me to see the ocean for the first time I was a little confused. Why would she be so excited about something that looked & felt a lot like the bathtub??

"It's the ocean, honey! Isn't it fun?? Isn't it beautiful??"

I don't know mom, it looks awful big to me... and I'm all wet & there's stuff sticking to me & I don't know what to do about it.

In the grand scheme of things, I guess it wasn't all bad. I got to see lots of nice people & some of them took pictures of me (mom called them my paparazzi) & I got to meet lots of other dogs. The waves kinda scared me though, they were loud & came at me really fast. Once I got used to them it was a little better.

We walked along for awhile & mom collected some seashells & I got to smell some pretty interesting stuff. It wasn't too bad I guess, but I told mom it was okay of she went without me next time, I was fine back at the condo watching TV.

All in all, it was a great vacation. We got to hang out with my Auntie Heather & Uncle Mike & my brother Pilot, & my Uncle Josh came to the beach with us too. Plus my Uncle Mike's bandmates were there, so there were tons of people to bark at & play with.

Now I think I need a nice long nap to recover from my vacation...

So glad you've finally seen the beach! There's nothing I enjoy more then running (off leash) with Mom at the beach

What a wonderful vacation you had! You look like you were really enjoying the beach. We never would have known you were scared at first. And then you got to spend time with family and furends, that was pawsome!
