Beach Dogs

I went back to the dog beach just south of Sharky's on the Pier to see if anything had changed from a year ago.
 It seemed a lot more quiet than my last visit. Dogs more demure, some on leashes.
 I wondered if new rules are in place.
Still, the dogs seemed thrilled with a watery spring break.

Last year, I picked up these two shots...dogs catching frisbees as well as waves.

So much more active and playful than the dark silhouettes I saw today.
Coulda' been the light? Wrong time of day? Economic times?

Or maybe it's just me?

A shot from Google...love the shadows here.

May you always have a shell in your pocket
and sand in your shoes.

I remember last year's post and the dogs still look as if they're having fun this year. I would love to be on that beach, too!

Dogs and the beach. Two of my favorite things! I love that quote, too... I think it's about time to start filling my pockets with shells, again...

Very lively photos - shows well how dogs love water. Now, if they had been cats ...

My son's dog would have chased boats if left to her own device. Some breeds truly love the water, and are extremely adept.

I love it that we have a beach dedicated to our furry friends. You gotta love a wet dawg to hang out there.

They look like they are having a great time. No sand here, just snow.

Hi hi hi my special friend. Ohhh I see you keep all the goodies to yourself...really do share that blissfull sun....I'm desparate.

I had the pleasure of finally seeing the ocean...although it was the Pacific and very cold, I loved the sand and shells! There were dogs everywhere on that beach too, but the water was a bit chilly for them to be taking a dip! Yours looks much more warming and sunny! Wish I was catching a frisbee with them!

There are so few FL beaches where dogs are allowed and I love seeing them enjoying it! They go together, don't they? Just like children and beaches. One of my most precious memories is of our dachshund Penelope deliriously happy her first time at the beach. We stayed a week at Cape San Blas and my little red darling stayed sand encrusted and would have floated out in the Gulf if we'd have let her. It's one of the memories that I pull out when sitting in the dentist chair to escape in my mind.

Now you've made me want to pack up and text our daughter that I'm on my way to FL!

I love those photos, especially with the frisbees :)

What a great post!
We don't have the sea for our wee pups, but our canal with our little beach suffices for Bosco, and Bella.
I fear the waves of the ocean would suck them away forever more.
thank you for such a treat this post has been, Becky.
