Sand? Oh, no thank you!

So it was another dog beach day today at Foster beach.  The weather was perfect and there were almost zero dogs on the beach.  Last time we were at the dog beach we noticed Link running onto other people’s blankets and actually sitting down and taking a break.  We originally thought he might not like the sand and today we solidified our hypothesis.  Its clear, Link does not like sand.  Eve eats sand.  We will play fetch with Link in the water and he runs right after it and brings it happily back.  However, when we throw the ball in the sand, he won’t pick it up.  Link actually digs at it and paws it either to the blanket or the water before picking it up gingerly on the very corner of the ball.  Eve at the same moment is ecstatic to find that if she digs deep enough water will pool at the bottom of her hole.  As she discovers this in one hole she leaps up wiggling and goes to dig another hole looking for that same surprise.  At least they are starting to get used to the dog beach and venturing out to meet new dogs.

    • Brooke & Darwin:
      The very first day we went to the beach Eve would chase after us into the water, but I think she didn’t realize it was water until she got out there! Once we were out there she would circle our feet whimpering and yelping! She plays defenseless little dane way too well. She is very people motivated so if you entice her enough she will reluctantly venture out. However if the waves our high, she wants nothing to do with it! The beach is great!

      How about Darwin? Have you gotten the chance to try water?

  2. We love sand! If you dig in it, it flies everywhere! 😀

    Good to see that Link loves the water! Laura has a Mobility Dog puppy (Golden Retriever), who at 9wks old loved the water some much she would climb into the shower when someone was using it!!

    Licks and lots of slobber,
