We all have friends and we expect our dogs to have friends too. We organize play dates for them like children. I love to get together my "dog" friends so the pooches can run around and play and we can chat about our babies. Non dog owners tend to bored by these discussions rather quickly! That's why I like to get together at least once a week with my dog friends. Yesterday, Beatriz and Hermann came over, as well as Selena who's missing Huey bigtime! She needed a dog fix. Hermann is a Great Dane(of course) and a Certified Therapy Dog. He's the most mellow, cool, casual, hunk o' burnin' love you ever met. He's definitely a good influence on my dogs too! So without further ado, a few more pics of us hanging at my house after the beach.
and the livin' is easy! Roxy, as well as Lilly and Sophie are exhausted from a weekend at the beach. We live right near the beach and go fairly often but we just spent a long weekend on the west coast where the kids didn't have to be leashed at all...not even to get to the beach. So it play time all the time. YAY!
Of course we did have to do a few "work" sessions but working on "recall", for example, on the beach is much more fun than in our usual training sites. They get to chase sticks and coconuts into the water, have wild zoomies and jump up and down off the banks of sand formed by the waves. Every once in a while I call them back and make them sit, down or finish and that's a quick training session that's fun for everyone. We all had a blast!!
