Rough Seas

The water was pretty rough at the beach this morning.Dad kept the bumper tosses close. The crew still had a good time.Even Dora, who continued her quest to dig to China…

Just Walking

Dylan is getting some dry patches from the saltwater, despite a good fresh water rinse and weekly bath with medicated shampoo. Today, we took a break from the beach and just had a long walk. Bad news, no beach time. Good news, no rinse off or ear drops…

Beach Fun

Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora love the beach – each in their own way.

Dee Dee only wants to swim to retrieve the bumper.
Dora loves to dig in the sand, don’t know why…
Just give Dylan a good stick or a coconut and he’s happy. Not a bad life for the Red Head crew.

Beach Treasure

Trips to the beach always include several toys for retrieving. But nothing beats found treasure. Dee Dee and Dora found a hunk of plastic floating in the water. Dora even swam out to retrieve it – alas, Mom had her camera in her pocket. A hunk of found…

Lucky Dogs

The Red Head crew woke to rain but no wind. By 9:00 am the rain had stopped and Mom and Dad decided to take the crew to the beach.Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora sure are lucky dogs!


A few days ago, the Red Head crew started watching an approaching storm. It was looking like lots of rain and some high winds. Yesterday boats started pouring into the marina as every bit of dock space was filled with people looking for safe harbor.

By late morning the storm clouds gathered off the marina. By lunch the wind and rains had come. Alas, it was not to be a beach day today. Probably not tomorrow either… ☹️

Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora are hunkered down until the storm passes.

Beach Queen

While the entire Red Head crew loves the beach, Dee Dee is the beach queen.

No one plays as hard or takes the job of swimming for the bumper as seriously as her.

No one has as much fun.

Dora would like to follow in Dee Dee’s footsteps, if only it weren’t for that swimming part…

Getting Braver?

Dora still isn’t convinced about this swimming stuff. She really prefers to have her paws firmly on the terra firma.

But Dora also likes fighting with Dee Dee for the bumper.

How far will she go?

She still doesn’t want four paws off the ground.

However, Dora is getting braver, pushing a bit further into the surf. She may end up a swimmer after all.

The Ultimate Prize

Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora vie for the bumper.

What a Brat

Dee Dee swims the distance to retrieve the bumper.Dora waits to waylay Dee Dee.Then Dora makes the steal.What a little brat…
