Bleach Schwimming again!

We went schimming last sunday at the beach, I was so happy to be back there that I jumped into the water.

My M says I look like Super-Dog! Do I?

Tommy also likes jumping into the water, but he doesn't look as Super as me, coz he's not flying.

They throw frisbee into the water, but strangely when I try to flip over the frisbee to pick it up, it sinks, and then I sink too. (M: On land, Helios will flip the frisbee over so that it's easier for him to pick it up. He tried to do this in water as well but his nose ended up poking the frisbee and they both sank)





Tommy is so clever, he can take TWO toys without sinking. See, his head is still dry.

But I got a very wet head.

I don't know why Scuba doesn't like swimming when it's so fun. Aunty S had to drag him into the water.

Look at the tails he made. (M: Trails!!!!)

See, he looks relieved once he's back on land.

Aunty S only made him swim twice, then she gave up and took him for a walk instead. I think he's happier with the walk.

After we showered, the humans went to have lunch. They had Sushi, I had nothing. :(

So I went to look at the sea again, and I ask if I can go play play. They said no, coz I've just showered.

Tommy wanted to jump over but his dad stopped him.

Then the humans had I-Scream for dessert. I had nothing again. :(

I wanna scream too!

But they said I can have cookie if I do funny things on head and nose. So I said, ok for cookie!

I lurve going to the bleah. I hope we can still go in future, because my M said recently there's been people complaining to the papers about dogs at bleaches and eating places.

It didn't help that a few months ago, a husky bit a little girl's ear at the bleach. My M says just because 1 owner can't control her dog, it makes the rest of us looks bad. Apparently the husky was only adopted 2 months ago, and the new owner off leashed it at the beach. My M felt that 2 months is not enough to understand a rehomed dog, or for the dog to accept a new person as an owner. She said she took many, many months with my big brother Herbie before he responded to her commands.

Now we just hope that they don't decide to ban dogs from the bleach, or I'll have no place to schwim.

Oh you really look like super dog in the water. :) HOw come you didn't get any yummy food or screams that the hoomans had. I hope pet owners will be more responsible so that the action of 1 dont reflect badly on the other good pet owners

That first photo of you is absolutely awesome Helios - definitely needs a big frame somewhere!!

The rest of the photos were great too - looks like a beautiful beach and I hope they still allow dogs on it - HM always says it only takes 1 irresponsible human to ruin it for the rest of us dogs.

I bet scuba wouldn't mind the bleach ban, but we would certainly miss all of your photos, they are great!

I hope you get to still go to the bleach even though we are with your bull terriorist friend. Water = yuck, unless there's a squirrellie to catch and eat in it.
Those are GRRRREAT photos! Thanks for the smiles!
