Our World Tuesday: Dog Days at the Beach

Our cousin came down with her three Dobermans this weekend. We learned that dogs don't profile according to size. Buddy (middle) flirted his heart out with Honor, even if she was out of his league. Clyde (left) stood on the first landing of the stairs to let his larger relatives know he was there and--well, we don't know what else. The big pups were not impressed.  The big dogs showed the littler one how you play in the water.  The beach was our own for as long as we were there.  (Go figure!)





From July 1, 2012

The Dobies love Jayne, and they had her back at all times. They are devoted rather than needy. (Take note, Clyde.)

The dogs loved the water.  Every now and again, they'd run along to a cyclist or runner as if to say, "Hey, the water's great; come on in."  There were no takers, though.  A couple of aging hippies came along who just kind of watched and appreciated the spectacle of these elegant and powerful animals playing like the kids they are.  The man said, "Those are some uptight dogs you have there," and he smiled.  Another family walked by twice to just to see if they could, I think.

This fellow is loaded with cancer, but our cousin treats him like the king of the world, and he is a gentle, happy dog despite his health.  He is also a pretty darn good swimmer.

Sunday night, one hum-dinger of a storm blew in and sent pine needles and debris from outer space flying around.  I had  thought I would walk to the beach even though the storm was on its way, but I thought better of making of myself a living example of stupid for my daughter and nephews.  Phew, I thought, as I wiped the pine needles off my face after taking this picture.  The line between good and bad is not always imaginary, as you can see here.  (The dogs were safely home by the time the storm hit, thank goodness.)

  1. I do love to watch dogs at the beach!! They have SO much fun! Delightful captures for the day, Sandy! The weather/storms have been horrific in your part of the world! The news has succeeded in stopping me from whining about the gray and somewhat chilly weather here in the northwest! Hope you have a great, storm-free week!

  4. Wonderful shots of the dogs. I'm sorry about the one with cancer but glad he's treated well. I love those dramatic storm shelves at the beach. They strike my fancy for the dramatic.

  5. Dobie's are such handsome dogs. Our neighbors have one and she's a sweetie.

    We just got a puppy a couple of days ago, Sandy. When he's full grown, he will probably be as big as one of the dobies' heads. What a change in our household.

  8. The dobermans are beautiful dogs. Love the shot of them looking over or out the rail. They are keeping an eye on someone. I'll bet Clyde loved the doggie company too. Great photos, have a happy 4th of July!

    Dogs are said to have a sixth sense.

    The last picture is amazing. Energy felt must have been high.

    Please have you all a kind Tuesday.

  22. A lot of joy in those beach pictures!

    Yeah, I'm glad you didn't walk out in that storm -- wouldn't have been good role model material at all ;>) (wait until the kids are gone?)

  23. Those dogs are magnificent. I've seen dogs teach each other things (by example) like playing in the water.

    Glad you didn't take that walk. I love running in the rain along the river trails, but not if their is lightning!

  24. The dogs are gorgeous and I'm glad they were safely at home when that storm hit. I'm also glad you decided to play it smart - though I'd have been tempted too. That's an incredible photo of the incoming storm.
