You all know and love my silly, sweet doggie, Doozer. Well I thought I knew him. Specifically, I thought that he wasn’t a fan of water. That was until Doozer and I went for a walk to a creek not to far from home.
We went to the edge so I could let him get a drink and see the ducks and loons. Then he just got in!!! I was SO excited I had brought my camera with me so I could share the moment with Daniel when we got home! Added Bonus: Video Evidence!
Someone smelled a little too much like wet dog (and was a bit muddy) by the end of his adventure, so we headed to the pet store where they have a self serve dog wash. Some friends of ours decided to help! =)
It was SO much fun to discover this side of Doozer! I can’t wait to get him a LONG leash or find a off leash area where he can show me his stuff!
Since we got Doozer in February I’ve wanted to take him to a dog beach. We finally got the chance to take him on labor day weekend! =)
He LOVED all the new smells and after a few sniffs, he tore up and down the shore. It was so awesome to see him in such a natural environment enjoying the simple pleasures of life. Daniel and I played some frisbee and then we got a tennis ball and the ball launcher out for Doozer. Since we were the only ones on the beach, we launched the ball out super far and Doozer bolted!
Doozer isn’t too fond of water usually, so when a couple waves caught him by surprise, I was sure he would freak. To our surprise though, he ran out to greet the waves several times on his own. I think his favorite moment happened when a gull flew overhead. It was all we could do to get him to come back! It made me so happy to see him so excited and happy.
Just wanted to share some photos of our puppy after Daniel and I worked on images of me in my adoption t shirt. He’s got a birthday coming up next month. Two years old! =)
I can’t tell you how great it’s been to have Doozer in our family. He is the sweetest boy. Always happy to get rubs and quick to give kisses. His eyes are so soulful and so beautiful. Every morning I love walking him all drowsy out to the yard and every afternoon when I come home he’s so happy to see me. He melts my heart. =)
