Carmel beach

Carmel beach is just beautiful. Everytime we visit, we wish we were rich, so we could live in one of the houses overlooking the ocean. When we visit, we keep Shelby on lead for about half the time. Sometimes because we're not sure if the other dogs are nice. But we were really impressed with all the dogs there. Shelby had a great time running around with them, and digging in the sand. It was Shelby's own misbehavior that caused us to put her on lead. We had to keep her from raiding people's beach encampments like some kind of small foraging bear. The pup has no sense of personal space.

And the really wonderful part is that despite the many dogs on Carmel beach, it was clean! We had all but given up on going to Half Moon Bay, where the only beach that allows dogs is littered with horse manure. Back then, Shelby's first act there was to pick up a big wad of it in her mouth. Much yelling ensued. As you can see from this photo, we didn't have any of those problems in Carmel.

UH-oh! Reader request! Steven really should make that picture into a background - it looks like one of those beach scenes people use as backgrounds - plus pug!

I was just going to request the same thing as miss ellen Sapp! It would make a lovely background. :)

Actually I wouldn't mind this as my wallpaper too! I was searching for other pug wallpaper since I only have some moody rocks on mine and they are either;

A: The pugs are too fat
B: a photo taken by Stevie Wonder...

Shelby is positioned really well in that photo, and the composition is great... She has that 'where did they go?' look similar when I used to play hide and seek with my pug and he started to wimper when he couldn't find me. My room is still looking dull since I have the preset wallpaper on my new iMac. If you find time from meaning all those deadlines for fussy clients, could you make a 1680 x 1050 version pretty please?
