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.
