Another snapshot from a long-ago visit to Henri’s favorite dog beach at Coronado.  On this particular day, he enjoyed running along the beach, chasing seagulls, a little dip in the ocean, sunning on a lounge chair with nose in the air, catching various scents that drifted by on the breeze, and this…

He liked it tolerated it, promise!  What a patient family dog he has been throughout the years!  We <3 you, Henri!

Going way back to 2000…vacationing on the beach at Coronado.

Another Day at Coronado

After Liz finished getting her hair cut last week, we went over to Parker’s house and then to get some lunch:

Well, I should say Liz and Frank got lunch; me and Parker got to sit under the table and wait for scraps. Luckily, a bag of SunChips flew off the table, so I got to have a few extras.

Also, the lady at the deli gave Parker and me a Milk Bone. We had to share it, so Liz & Frank had to separate us while we ate. We have been known to have a few incidents over food, which Liz says are my fault. Once we got into a fight over a wind-up piece of sushi because I mistakenly thought it was edible…:(

You could see how that could happen, right?

After lunch, we got back in the car and drove down to Coronado. It was a lovely day. Parker immediately went crazy and started running around, and I did my usual routine of strolling down the beach on my own, peeing on every visible piece of seaweed. But then we all went for a little walk:

Frank gave me tummy rubs in the sand:

Parker met some poodles who were very unfortunately dressed (well, one of them was!)

Liz says that is “wrong”. I say, what is wrong about it? She is already a poodle. It is to be expected.

Frank told Parker he was running too wild, and made him be carried for a while:

Parker did not like this very much. He does not really like to have his picture taken. I told him, you have to just roll with it because our humans are crazy for pictures!

I am used to it and I happily pose (as long as I am not dressed in some outfit, then I do not like it!)

(See, Parker still looks sad)! We were visited by some new friends:

Unfortunately, I stepped on something I shouldn’t have and my paw started hurting a lot. Usually I’m very brave and Liz has a hard time telling if something is wrong with me. But I was limping and then I just laid down in the sand:

Frank tried to make me feel better by brushing me and giving me cuddles:

But it was still hurting a lot! So we decided to go home. Liz washed my paw at the doggie faucet and then we were ready to get in the car. I just had to sit by Parker– I was already starting to forget about my paw! Don’t we look cute sitting together in the back seat?

I can’t wait to go to the beach again!


A Day at Coronado

Yesterday Liz decided we should go to the beach. It is finally starting to be sunny and with daylight savings time, it feels very summery.

Of course I am always ready for a trip to the beach. It’s pretty much my favorite place, although the park is a close second.  Or any walk, really.

Here I am with the famous Hotel Del waaay in the background:

It was pretty hot but we decided to walk to the end of the beach because I like to do that. I met a few dogs along the way:

But I wasn’t feeling too playful. I’m a bit discriminating when it comes to other dogs. Usually I like other smushy faced dogs, and I tend to like girls better than boys. There are exceptions of course, and Liz has never been able to figure me out completely.  I’m just more of a people dog.

So we kept walking, towards Point Loma:

That is it in the distance. This is one of Liz’s favorite beaches in all of San Diego. Maybe you can see why.

I like to walk to the end, where the beach becomes a military-only beach, to sniff around the rocks down there.

I have sneaked across a few times, but the guard finds me so charming I don’t get into trouble. Only with Liz!

And then we headed back! It was a lovely and relaxing time.

Of course, when we got back I had to face a bath. But now I’m nice and clean, and snuggling in my bed:

And quite frankly I’m ready for Liz to stop taking pictures of me!
