Welcome to this week’s Dogs on Thursday post, which is also the last post about our beach trip. As you can see, Mugsy had a bit more freedom than Missy Sissy. She’s doing pretty well off-lead at home, but we weren’t about to risk it at the beach!
Today’s also a very special day. Haddon Wood’s Princess of Joy, aka: Sissy, is six months old today. It’s hard to believe! Her other nicknames? “Me Do It” because she doesn’t want help with anything; she wants to do it herself. “Wild Child” – see the photo… There are others, but those are the polite ones.
The Prince had a BIG time on the beach. He loves the ocean, and had fun playing fetch in the surf.
Because I had Sissy’s leash and the camera, the poor gal didn’t always get enough warning to avoid the cold, bad water.
Is that not the saddest retreat from the ocean ever?
Despite being on the leash, Sissy still managed to run along and being a pesky little tag-along sister. She loves the beach; it’s just that cold, wet stuff she doesn’t like. And she doesn’t otherwise mind water, as rain, bath, shower, etc., so we’re thinking it was the rather chilly temperature of the ocean that bothered her.
I could post photos all day, but perhaps they’ll surface another day when I’m missing the beach. We’ll end with a post-romp shot of two VERY tired (clean and dry!) dogs at rest. (No, they’re NOT supposed to be on the sofa without a cover, but it was so cute… Clearly, Mugsy is lording his superiority over Sissy, but she’s too tired to care.)
