Virginia Beach Part 2

This was my first time playing in the ocean and it was AWESOME!  I made up a new game.  It’s called run away from the waves before they crash onto me.

The only downside to playing on the beach is the leash law…dogs must be leashed at all times.  I’m not a rule breaker so I made sure my leash was attached to mommy.  Several times, I ran so fast, I almost pulled out her arm socket. 😉

Apparently, people were watching us play on the beach (so it’s a good thing I followed the law).  When we got back to the boardwalk and washed off the sand, we were approached by people who thought I was too cute playing in the water.  They started laughing at me because I was petrified of the shower to rinse off the salt and sand.  I acted like I was deathly afraid of water.  I further got bamboozled when we went back into our hotel and aunt Kwyn gave me a bath.  I got my revenge though.  While mommy wasn’t paying attention, wet dog Luke hopped onto the bed for an afternoon siesta.  Haha. 😀

I hope everyone enjoyed my beach pics from last week’s adventures.  This weekend I’m going to a fruit farm to pick apples and maybe a pumpkin.  I’ll make sure tons of pictures are taken of me and I will share them in a future blog.

Have a great weekend.  Until next time!

Virginia Beach Part 1

Hiya peeps!

I went on my first vacation last weekend.  This was a trial run to see how I would handle a four hour car ride.  Guess what?  I passed with flying colors!

This was also the first time I stayed in a hotel and I was an absolute angel.  We stayed at the Residence Inn by Marriott in Virginia Beach.  They are extremely dog friendly and the view of the beach is awesome.

There were so many dogs staying in our hotel and it was a nice hotel too.  Everywhere I looked, there were dogs, dogs, dogs.  It’s off-season now so Virginia Beach is dog friendly, allowing dogs on the boardwalk and beach.

Mother Nature gave us a warm kiss.  The weather was gorgeous, 68-70 degrees and partly sunny.  Surprisingly, the Atlantic Ocean was warm.  We took tons of pics of yours truly playing on the beach so I think I will do a two part blog.

Enjoy the pics.  Until next time!

Our room is on the 6th floor. I watched dogs walking their people on the boardwalk.

I chose this bed because it was by the window.

There are people swimming in there. I hope the water is warm!!


Terrapin Nature Preserve

Back in May, my friends and I visited Terrapin Nature Preserve in Stevensville, Maryland.  It was our first stop before Matapeake Beach, so technically speaking, this was my first beach combing experience. This beach is on the north side of Kent Island while Matapeake Beach is on the west side, about 15 minutes away.

The tiny beach was crowded with people and dogs had to be leashed.  Our leashes  got really tangled so we couldn’t play like we wanted to.  It wasn’t a nice and peaceful environment so we stayed for 15 minutes before leaving.

Although our stay was short, we took some pics so I thought I’d share it with everyone.  Some fun in the water is better than no water at all, right?! 😀 ~ Luke


This is where I proved that I was really a labrador!


I’m giving Riley a stare down before we play.


Tug-a-war!  Tug-a-war!

I’m playing fetch with Riley one last time before we go.  (That’s the Chesapeake Bay Bridge in the background).


Let me shake off the sand then onward to our next destination!

Staycation Day 4

May 27, 2013, Memorial Day, was the most fun I’ve ever had in my young life…and I’ve had MANY adventures already.  I went to the beach for the first time!!!!!!!!

Mommy, Aunt Kwyn, Cousin Amy, Cousin Dave, Lita, Riley’s mommy Kellie, and Riley went too.  We went to Matapeake State Park, which has an off leash dog park at the end of the beach.  It’s on Kent Island by the Bay Bridge in Maryland, about 1.5 hours from my house.

We had so much fun playing in the Chesapeake Bay as well as running around the beach.  At first, Lita, Riley and I had the beach all to ourselves.  Later that afternoon, more dogs showed up and we had a blast playing with them.

Soooo many pics were taken, I decided to split them up into separate blogs.  Enjoy!  I know I did! 😀 ~ Luke


I LOVE fetching sticks!
