Taking the pups to the ocean has been high on my list for a long time, and we were able to do just that. Saying that they loved the beach would be an understatement.
Once Oakley figured out that the ocean isn’t good for drinking and that the waves weren’t going to crush her she loved the water! She loves any kind of body of water so this was no surprise. Sometimes I think she thought that the sand was snow because she would try to stick her head in it and eat it.
We all know Ella loves a good game of fetch (it’s what she lives for) but she LOVED playing fetch on the beach. The sand was soft so she could slide head first after the tennis ball no problem. When she got hot she would wallow in the mud just far enough from the water that the bigger waves couldn’t hit her. When we threw the ball into the ocean she would dive in, no hesitations, but she would hop back out as fast as she could. She’s not a very graceful swimmer.
We had a blast driving up and down the beach in the evenings and enjoying the gorgeous sunsets.
