Betsy goes to the beach

Betsy is the best dog in the world, despite the fact she stays cooped up an awful lot while I'm away at work and play.

Sunday was her day. She got packed up into the car, and we headed for the doggy beach. It's only about 45 minutes away, but it seems hard to find time and/or energy to make the trip, and Betsy hasn't been in a good while.

Betsy scopes out the water.

She's not all that crazy about water. Sunday, however, she found a friendly Huskey who was playing in the water. I unleashed Betsy, and she splashed out to him.

She would run back to me once in a while, to make sure I wasn't leaving her, then it was back to her new friend. They ran around in the water.

Betsy met several other dogs, got lots of pets and compliments, and just enjoyed herself thoroughly.

She was a tired and happy camper when we got home.

We need more trips to the beach!!

Hoomans need the beach too.

Yes, and pets and compliments, too!

I made a vow to go more regularly. Being around water lifts up my spirit, and I love to swim.

Neato pictures, Pat! Hope all is well with you. I've been thinking about you even if I haven't been around in a while.
