Furry Beach Fun

On such a balmy morning, where the sun is shining...

... and the tide has moved in to the shore...

... what better way to spend the day than some wet furry fun on the beach.

Bruce the beagle inspecting the beach with its acute hunting instinct.

Stout the labrador gladly retrieving his frisbee from the sea.

Rosco the lhasa apso contemplating whether to go into the water or not.

Angel the retreiver getting jiggy in the water.

Hero the sharpei being a busybody ushering a jogger along the beach.

Princess the excited labrador pup telling me how she managed to float on the water.

Bruce the beagle pup having his swimming lesson.

No swimming lesson for me though...

... as I doggy paddle my way across the water...

... in the wide open sea.

Enjoying the salty sea breeze under the warm tropical air.

As I was enjoying a dip in the sea later in the afternoon...

... I saw a familiar face from the beach.

It's the dog pack, which I had an unpleasant encounter with in the past. You can read it here.

Looks like Jumbo still have a bone to pick with me...

... as he remembers my amorous rendezvous...

... with the sweet and gentle Doggy last Christmas.

We try to subdue the aggressive Jumbo by limiting his movement, but he is not too impressed with it.

Leave it to the hoomans to play peacemaker, by putting me into a raft...

... with the obnoxious pair of Jumbo and Winter. Notice how the clouds turn gloomy in an instance, must be all those negative vibes :)

Since we are not at ease with each other, the situation in the raft is awkward to say the least...

... and it does not take long for Jumbo to make his displeasure known.

But in true sharpei spirit, I make an attempt to pacify the situation and disperse all those negative energy by having some small bark with the duo.

I guess it works...

... coz after what feels like a lifetime on the raft...

... we are playing zoomies on the beach like the best of pals... my work is done :)

Maybe you should take a shot at world peace, Hero. I bet you could do better than any humans have so far. I don't see Doggy in any of those photos. I guess she heard about you and Twix being a thing now. Anyway, you are amazing as always.

wags, Lola

You live the life there on the beach! I love that picture of you having a chat with the puppy. It looks like you did calm the waters with that pair of white dogs, too!
