Creatures from the deep!

Back in the States, spending some time with Mommy down at the beach. Been making some new friends.

This guy never tries to get the ball from me. And he always lets me get there first when Mommy throws the ball...

He must be a Gooberhorseshoe Crab because he is ginormous, just like Stanley of Gooberstan.

Then I met this six-foot long alligator and another ginormous crabbie! They didn't have much to say either.

This morning we got up and went for a run and swim at the beach - all before breakfast! Dogs can only be on the beach before 10:00 am and after 5:00 p.m. in the summertime. Which is fine with me, because it gets too hot during the day. I met a couple of twin girls, adorable and just 3 1/2 years old who were great at throwing the ball once they got the hang of it. 

Later on this morning, Mommy has promised to take me for another bike ride in the new bike basket. I L-O-V-E it and if Mommy was only talented enough to be able to ride AND take a photo of us, we'd share it with you. You'll just have to wait. 

Now, I've got to go back to my duties of guarding the back deck from squirrels and alligators and great blue herons!

What a crazy shelled water gooberbeast! I have no idea how he would carry that ball if he did catch it.

My canine buddy Mr. Bojangles LOVES his bike basket rides too. He even wears goggles! I think that I would probably get motion sick and do pukies everywhere if I tried it.

Hi, Petey!
Those are very interesting creatures!
Too bad they don't play with you!
Have fun!
Kisses and hugs

Oooh! A ride in the bike basket!!! I'm jealous! (Mom says that a basket wouldn't fit on her bike, even if I could fit in the basket.... Something about how she's got this fancy-schmancy racing bike and a basket wouldn't fit.....*sigh*)

Have fun at the beach!

Hi Petey!!

Looks like you are having a great time at the beach! I love the beach. There are lots of strange looking characters there and lots of room to run and have fun.
Enjoy it while you can, my friend, because if your weather is like ours, it will probably rain tomorrow.

Love and Koobuss Kisses.

Your friend,

Lacie

Oh Petey, we've just gotta see a photo of you riding in the bike basket. Please ask your mum to try and take a photo but only if she promises not to topple over.

Watch out for that crab thing. It is HUGE! Oh, wait a minute, I forget, you are just a little guy. Maybe that crab isn't so big after all.

Slobbers,

Petey - be very very careful, those creatures on the beach look seriously scary!
As for the bike basket, I'm SO jealous. In fact, to be truthful, I'm glad you didn't post a picture of that today, as I'm feeling a bit fed up at the moment, and it would remind me of how selfish Gail is, always going out for bike rides without me.
Cheers, from a not so cheerful Hamish.

Petey, you will have to ask someone to take a picture - we would just love to see you in the bike basket! We used to have our last dog, Harry, in a trailor behind the bikes - he would have been far too big for a basket!
We loved your sand monsters - you just be careful! You can never be too sure what monsters are over there - we have seen the movies.
love and kisses
