The Beach

We took the girls to the beach this weekend to beat some of the heat. This crazy heat has made exercise difficult and the quantities of water consumed in the last couple of days has been absurd. Right now we are all basking in that glorious invention...Air Conditioning!

The water was very cold and Makin wasn't interested in a long swim. Tessa loved chasing the ball though. She has a lot of enthusiasm for retrieving and is quite good at leaving the ball for me when she brings it back.

On another note, Makin has been having a bit of the reverse sneezes. Not sure if its allergies or if she caught a bug. She has improved over the last couple of days. We may have to take another trip to the vet though. We can be nervous nellies when it comes to the ladies.

Not sure if anyone will notice but Tessa has put on some weight and muscle. We have her on a higher protein diet and she looks great. I wish we had switched over a little sooner. The weight is making her look less like a puppy.

Below are some beach pictures and hopefully a video. The whining is Kiley the aussie who can't figure out why she isn't allowed to play.

Tessa has a lovely gait -- and looks really nice and lean. Momo was also very pleased to see his mother enjoying the view from the beachtowel.

Hopefully, our glamor trip this weekend will be to visit with HRH Brisztow Jones.

all the best

Oh that looks like you had a lovely day. I went to day care today. I'm exhausted.

Looks like you'all had a lovely and refreshing day! Glad the new kibble is working out well.

May I ask what beach you went to? I want to get the Bug to the beach....

The beach is in Ipswich. Unfortunateley it is a resident beach and there is often someone there keeping tabs on people. It is also a beach that requires dogs to be leashed. Woops! It is defineteley hard to find a beach that the dogs can go to during the summer months.

Drat!! Mr. Bug might have to wait to frolick on the beach...

Tessa looks great. We found that Dennis put on more muscle when we switched to a higher protein food too. What brand are you feeding?
