More beachcombing adventures

Back on Independence Day weekend, I went to Matapeake Beach in Stevensville, Maryland with Lita and Riley.  I’m glad I had a chance to re-visit these pictures because it prepares me for next month’s beach trip to Virginia Beach during Columbus Day weekend.  Not only will I get to touch the Atlantic Ocean with my own four paws for the first time, I will have a chance to play in salt water, AND stay in a dog friendly hotel by the ocean!!!!!!!  How cool is that?!?!?!?!  😀

I will make sure tons of pictures are taken during the trip and share them with everyone.   Have a great weekend!

With my trusty PFD, I can play in the water twice as long as other dogs.

Lita is suspicious of this interloper. She’s a brave puppy!

July 4th weekend

I celebrated Independence Day at Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg last Friday.  I went with Aunt Kwyn and we met up with Aunt Kim and her mom.  The weather was gorgeous in the high 70s after a week of oppressive heat and humidity.  The winery allows friendly dogs inside the tasting room so yours truly was hamming it up.  Just about everybody pet me then came around and pet me again.  I was too cute in my Under Armour shirt.  What can I say?  I’m a fashion victim. 😉

I’m keeping my eyes on her in case she falls into the pond. Where’s Waldo?  Er, Aunt Kim?

Okay ADD kicking in. Let’s head back to our table so we can eat more treats.

On Saturday, I went to the dog beach with my dog peeps (Lita and Riley) and human peeps (mommy, Aunt Kwyn, Cousin Dave, Cousin Amy and Keli).  We had a blast and played for a few hours.  Again, the weather was gorgeous.  The Chesapeake Bay was a little choppy because Hurricane Arthur passed by a day earlier, but I had on my trusty PFD (personal flotation device) so I was able to play in the water without getting tired (or inadvertently drinking bay water) like the other dogs.  One dog accidentally drank the bay water while playing fetch and threw up his food all over the sand.  EEEEWWWWW!!!!

We took tons of pics at the beach so I’ll share more in the days (or weeks) to come.

Until next time! ~Luke

This chihuahua was a good swimmer.  The water was too choppy for him so he tired out really quick.

I wanted to play fetch with this golden lab but he was in his own world.
