March 20, 2011


We went to go to the beach for M.O.M.'s birthday.
We noticed that there were a lot of shells on the sand from a storm during the night.
So while M.O.M. and M.O.D. were busy hunting for treasure the dogs took off exploring everywhere.
Of course Mistaya always runs so fast that little Maggie has a hard time keeping up with her.

But once in awhile Maggie manages to catch up with Mistaya and some times the results are not what Maggie expects!
Mistaya seems to enjoy a "drive by" attack to little Maggie.  She often spins her little body,growls like a mad dog then runs off at top speed.
And usually by the time Maggie recovers Mistaya is no where to be seen!
Maggie doesn't give up and looks every where for her.
And in no time at all she is hot on Mistaya's trail again.

This behavior goes on and on until Mistaya thinks she has covered enough ground at top speed and she returns to the water near us and our beach combing.
Because of Maggie's prior experience with the large waves she does stay away from the water...which we encourage her to do.
I can not go through another close call of little Maggie being swept out to sea.

The waves began to get very large after we had been here for a few hours and we decided not to take a chance so we headed back to the car for our return trip back home.
And as usual little Maggie is fast asleep in her dog bed about 2 minutes out of the parking lot.

And Mistaya is not far behind into her deep sleep.

What a wonderful Birthday it was with my wonderful husband and 2 delightful dogs to share the day with.
Life is so good
