Beach dog

Did I tell you our new home is next to the beach? We already went to the beach a lot, but now we go there all the time. I love it!

Me-time

Last weekend was a bit too much. I went running with P and walking with M and guardening at our new house. It is a lot, you know, having to guard two houses. Even for a dog with my stamina.

I need some time to rest, really. As in: snoozing for a couple of hours, being left alone. I need me-time. And that is precisely what I will indulge myself in. See you later!

Exciting encounter

We just returned from a long walk in the dunes and on the beach. It is cold outside, winter is here!

I don’t mind the cold. As long as I keep moving I am warm. So I was glad when we were on the beach, so I could run.

However, after a while I slowed my pace, because there was something very awkward moving on the beach:

It was slithering over the sand (one can hardly call that movement walking) and it was not amused to see us. It made noises and M said: “I don’t think it likes us being here.” Well, I am certain it did not like us, because I could understand what it said. I won’t repeat it here, but it was very clear. Sea creatures use some rough language!

We never met a sea creature like this before. I cautiously investigated it, from a distance – one never knows how wild creatures react and I like my dainty nose. Anyway: it smelled like salt. Fishy things. Exciting!

Beautiful day for a walk

We walk every day, of course we do! Humans have to get out at least twice a day, you know. Into the great outdoors. Or to the dog park. This week we made a lot of walks and this was the nicest one. The weather was splendid, autumn bliss.

We walked in the dunes. First we entered the dune-forest and then we went out into the open, climbing the little sandy hills:

And then, the best part of all: we were on the beach! I love the beach. There is no place more splendid.

 

A holiday!

What a surprise, we went on a holiday after all! M and P are very busy with our new home, so I thought we would not go on a holiday this summer. But we did! We went to the mountains! My favorite destination.

We made nice long walks along little paths. The smells and views were great. We walked up the mountains and sometimes we took an awkward machine going up – a bit like a bus or train, but these ones fly:

We encountered some pretty dangerous wildlife, too. I made sure M could pass them safely:

It was a really nice holiday! It felt like I was on the top of the world.

 

Changing paths

We just got back from a walk in the dunes. We go there a lot, almost every day, and I never tire of it. It is a wonderful place, with a myriad of smells: salty water, rabbits and foxes and birds.

There are a lot of paths, big broad ones and small ones that are more like trails. The little ones seem to change all the time and I really like that. Old ones are closing and new ones are opening. We discovered a new one, just now:

Nice!
