Beach... again!

We went to the beach again on sunday.

*warning* peek-ture... arghhh, I mean PICTURES intensive post!

Here's Mr Otter-boy making a splash... literally. I don't know why he has to go and create such a spash, and blinding himself with the water droplets in the process.

Splash! again.... and again...

He was swimming so badly that on several occasions, he had to use my MM as a buoy. My MM was complaining of being scratched on his back. I bet he appreciates a non-swimming dog (read: me) now.

Helios: Help! I'm drowning!

After some practise, he finally improved. At least he doesn't spash as much.

But he will start splashing again once he gets excited about his toy.

He also had a little struggle with Tommy over who would be getting the toy.

But he won in the end. I think Tommy gave in to him.

And he tried to bury his 'bone' once he got to shore.

As for Scuba, he was being dragged into the water.... as usual...

Jack was still sitting on the sand looking grouchy... as usual...

Joey was still playing with his ball... as usual...

But at least he was doing something else as well... rolling in the sand

What about me then? I was in my zen mode... being one with the sea...

Yes, I even told my M to make the sea looks more blue and 'zen-ny'. In my meditative state, I can see the future in my mind... and strangely, it seems edible.


Until I was rudely awaken from my zen-like state... to find myself being dragged out to sea.... AGAIN!

You're not supposed to disturb a Master in meditation!
I don't wanna GooOOoooOoooo...

I was finally released after a few stuggles, and as I swam back, I said a prayer...

Please don't let her drag me back again!

Even Helios was not spared from such a fate.

So we made our way back together...

Remember where Scuba hid during our last beach outing? Well, I decided to join him there once I reach shore.

Me: Are you sure they can't get us from here?
Scuba: I'm pawsitive!

Luckily, the humans finally decided to call it a day, and we showered. Scuba, Jack and Joey went home but our humans and Tommy's humans decided to go for lunch, and on the way, they found this place which they call the huge hair-dryer. So we were made to stay around to blow dry.

(M: It's actually an air vent, where the air is sucked in from the car park and blown out in the open for ventilation. Because the car park is relatively empty and underground, there's no exhaust smell, and the air is actually quite cooling.

Look at all our flying fur...

And a close up just to show you how strong the wind is, note my butt...

We tried to run around a bit to air-dry as well.

And when the humans finally had lunch, I thought we'll get a share as well, but NoooOooo... we had to stay under the table with no food!

Even when we put on our most pathetic faces, the humans remained unmoved.

See, even Helios tried to tell them that he's fainting of hunger!

Mind power: Food!

But they say that the food is unhealthy for us. I wonder, if it's so unhealthy, why are THEY eating it?

Of course, after the meals, they made us walk a bit more and when they saw a nice patch of grass, they had to make us pose for pictures. And we had to pretend to be happy.

On a side note, when this picture was taken, there was a whole bunch of gawkers looking at us take photos. I wonder... have they never seen a doggie model shoot before? Hmm.. or maybe they wanted our pawtograph.

And finally, we were allowed to leave after a hard day's work! Can you see how happy we were to leave?

WooOoooOOOooOoo!!! Soooo much FUN! Look at Helios, why is he paddling like that? Hmmm, he sure needs some good swimming lessons from professional you Herbie since you have already been swimming for how many donkey years, lol! And look at poor suffering Scuba! Ahahaha! he sure hates the water huh... So I wonder how he has his bath? I bet he stands still like a rock, kekeke!? Right Scuba?

Love licks,

Herbie and I were happy behind the rocks - relaxing having a tan UNTIL
his mom spotted us. Can't hide anywhere these days without being spotted.

All the water doggies surely had fun that day (minus me and Jack and to some extent Herbie).

Great pictures Auntie S.
