We went to the beach yesterday afternoon and I again had so much fun running all over the beach. As we went farther down the beach I noticed a dog running along the edge of the water.
As I started to approach him he looked up and ran towards me. M.O.M. called me to her side until she was sure it was safe for me to be near this dog. She looked for the owner of this dog and noticed that there was a man about 100 feet away on the beach.
She was certain the man would call back his dog when he saw that he was bothering us but he didn't seem to care what the dog was doing.
The dog did approach us and seemed to be friendly so M.O.M. let me run with him for awhile. We did have a lot of fun racing around but he had very big feet and he would reach out and strike me with them. I managed to keep enough distance between us so his feet didn't make their target.
We played for awhile when M.O.M. finally said we needed to be on our way. The dog didn't seem to be in any hurry to return to his owner and the owner wasn't the least bit concerned about the dog.
M.O.M. was a bit upset that this man didn't seem to care what his dog was doing so we were happy that the dog was a friendly one. As we were trying to leave he even posed for a picture for us.
We were finally able to get away from my new friend as M.O.M. reminded me that we were here for a purpose. Below is a photo of why we came to the beach at this time of day.
This was M.O.M.'s first attempt at a sunset over the ocean. She said not to worry that she will have plenty to chances to get a great photo.
Well, you know...any excuse to come to the beach is okay with me!! Let's keep trying for that perfect picture M.O.M. And of course I must come with you...I will keep all the stray dogs out of picture for you!
