While the east coast is getting inundated with miles of snow, out here in Oregon we are having unseasonably wonderful weather.
Goldee had never been to the beach and Holly and Joe thought it was time.
This girl was dancing the minute her tootsies hit the sand. She loved it immediately.
Her sister Autzen is a seasoned beach attendee. She knows the minute they get there, that the tennis ball comes out and the miles of sand and surf are hers for the taking.
Goldee isn’t quite so savvy off-leash yet and she quickly let Autzen know her feelings on the subject.
Never fear however, the 30 ft lead that Holly was attached to on the other end still allowed plenty of running and play time.
I’m pretty sure by the end of the day, Holly had her work-out in for a week.
Autzen only had eyes for the tennis ball the entire time we were there. She would wait all day for Joe to pitch the tennis ball with the chuck-it.
Goldee has to be one of the happiest dogs I have ever met. When Holly and Joe picked her up in Eastern Oregon, she was a tad bit shy. Five and half months later, this girl is happy and confident and knows that Joe, Holly and Autzen are her moon and stars.
Autzen knew it the minute we hit the parking lot. She could hardly wait to run and play in the surf.
At the end of the day, these two were exhausted but extremely happy dogs.
