Life's a beach

Another day, another glorious romp on the beach! Although we only made it to the beach once today, Mommy was a slacker. Plus we had a huge tropical downpour in the afternoon...

It was very windy on the beach today, lots of big waves and dolphins leaping around right off shore. But I was able to write a quick message to my Rosie Posie before the wind blew the sand and erased my message. Maybe it blew it over to her beach in Scotland!

There's only one bad thing about going to the beach - Mommy hoses me down afterwards. Then she gives me a good rubdown with a beach towel. Today, she remembered to bring along my bathrobe (!) - she claims it helps keep the backseat of the car cleaner and I dry off before we get home. 

I don't really mind it. In fact, I kept it on for a little while when we got home. I felt like a four-legged Hugh Hefner!

Hi Petey
We are quite sure that message in the sand blew right across to Scotland and that Rosie has it right now!
You could also try a 'message in a bottle' - that could work - you could a little tiny piece of your adorable fur in!!!
We wish we had found a nice beach like that on our holiday - ours was very slippy with nasty smelly seaweed until you walked way out. The wind was so fierce we thought our ears would blow right off!
Keep chilling - with every mile you walk on that beach the nearer you will be to where you are going!
We love you and miss you.

Hi Petey

Did you mention dolphins! When the little man heard that, he wanted to be right out there with you. He swam with some dolphins last November - not proper dolphin therapy but it had an amazing effect on him. Enjoy watching some dolphins with your Mom - dolphins are very special and those walks are very important too!

You look wonderful in that robe by the way!

We hope the days are getting a little easier.

Take care
Clive and gang

I fell sure it will get to Rosie.
Too bad about the weather, sometimes Mum likes to walk when the weather be wild and she upset. She say you can scream and shout at the wind and it not hurt no-one's feelings and no one be about to see you. I bark bark with her.

Wow Petey that look such a beautiful place. But I don't like going to the beach here when it's all windy, 'cos I get sand in my eyes and that hurts. Do you suffer the same problem?
Cheers H.
PS You're giving Gail ideas with that bathrobe - she always complains about me shedding sand in the Mini!

Gus said...

Muzzie loves it when the waves are like that! We are vicariously vacationing on your beach through your photos. But I'm not wearing that bathrobe, so don't give muzzer any ideas, OK?

I love the beach, except for that awful hosing down part afterwards. Although I will pass this bit of info along, don't drink the salt water, it will make you sick! I hope you are doing better every day!

Pearl said...

Oh Petey, the beach looks lovely. I bet there's a therapeutic touch to just bein' there. Somethin' about the sound of the waves and the wind... it's just peaceful.

Your message to Rosie was so sweet! She is such a lucky pup!

Give your momma a smooch for me!

Nika + PARKER said...

Wow lucky you! The Beach - Mom always talks about the beach, but we don't live near one. She said she was gonna bring me to one this summer...Salty water huh...wonder what that's like.

We really wish we could enjoy some time at the ocean - so many pups seems to have a blast there. Mom is very good to get that salt out of your fur, you don't want to get too dried out. Hope Mom isn't so sad today - give her some big sloppy kisses to help her.

Tail wags, the OP Pack

Eric said...
