Ocean Trails with Mom
Mom took me to Ocean trails this morning. I think it was a bit too late and hot for bunnies, but I met lots of doggie friends today! As we were running up the hill, I met my friend Alec-he was with his mommy coming back from a hike. I met a few other doggies along the path toward the beach. Once we started nearing the beach, I started going faster and faster.....and then we headed down the hill. I stopped suddenly, mom was wondering what I was doing, I headed straight toward a grassy area and BAM found a Tennis Ball! Boy do I have the nose to find Tennis Balls. Mom thinks I have a magnet in my nose or something...mom...come on...it's windy and Tennis Balls give off a distinctive smell and I didn't get a wiff of the smell until I had passed it already!
We got to the beach and Mom threw the ball to me. A doggie came and stole my ball, briefly, but his daddy threw it back to me. So mom threw it again! I started getting hot and tired and found a nice cool, wet place where the waves come...but I don't lay down in the water....just the wet sand!
Mom and I contined our run. We ran up hills and met more doggies, beasley was really nice. She was a cocker spaniel. And beasley's mom and my mom were talking for a bit so we got to sniff butts!!
We finally made it to the car. Mom had given me water all along the run, she wears a fuel belt that carries water bottles and she shares water with me! I'm really a lucky dog!!
We stopped at a place called the Corner Store and mom went in toget yummy food and ice cream. She let me lick the ice cream-but then she gobbled it down and we drove home!
We had a fun morning. Running 6 miles and playing at the beach and meeting lots of doggies! I hope everyone else has a great sunday!!!
