A salty dog

Shelby had her first visit to the beach today. We went with her friend Mocha. She loved it. There were other dogs, and some horses to meet on the beach. Shelby's first act was to taste a big lump of horse poop. Gross!

It was the most exercise she's had in a while. We played fetch-the-ball. Mocha's a faster bigger dog, so mostly Shelby chased Mocha, who chased the ball. A couple times Shelby got brave and decided to take on a wave. Luckily, she wasn't "stupid brave." She was soaked, but we never had to rescue her from the water.

Coming back, we realized she had enough sand under the eyelids, to fill a contact lens. If there's any question of how this happened, check out the pictures of her digging in the sand. She didn't rub her eyes; in fact it didn't seemed to bother her at all. So no harm done. We used a baby's ear syringe and flushed all the sand of her eyes.

She smelled like a sea puppy after the trip, which smells like a combination of salt water and puppy food. See the photo album for more pictures of her first day at the beach.
