Rusty at the Beach

Like he does with everything else in life, Rusty turns going to the beach into his own game.  Hope you all enjoy watching Rusty at the beach as much as he enjoys being there (or, frankly, anywhere else).

Doing a little digging

Walking on the wet sand

Watching the wave come in

Don’t let the wave touch your feety-feet though

And chasing that mean wave back to where it belongs

And, of course, play bows while on the drop line at the campsite.

    Nothing Rusty does strikes me as unusual at all. I mean – really.
    Rusty, you and I would have SUCH a blast together!
    Play bows,

    Hi guys! It took me a while to find your blog cos it wasn’t under the “My blogs” section in your Blogger profile… silly me didn’t see the “My Web Page” link until now.

    Anyway, the beach looks really fun! I’ve never been to the beach myself, but my brother Knuckles has and he gloats about it all the time. I can’t wait to go to the beach and do some digging of my own.

    Merry Christmas!!!

    Yeah for the road-trip to the BEACH! We’re enjoying the snow, but a camping trip to the playful sand and waves sound fantastic too!
    Rusty…everything is a fun thing right pal??!! I think so too!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

    Aaa, the beach for some post-holiday recovery. So lovely. Rusty looks so happy! It’s way too cold for me, but when the weather is really really warm, I love the beach. My Momma’s from the Mediterranean and she’s promised to take me there, for a warm day at the beach.
    Twink!

    You are my kind of guy! Here’s a fun trick, though! Try digging in the water! Your humans will love that!

    Here’s a question for TTH, how do you guys clean up all that sand and muck after each beach, ocean walk?

    Our springer needs a bath each time we would come back from the lake, or else she would smell like dead fish and leave sand everywhere!

    Rusty is so cute!

  18. KB on December 28, 2009 at 9:24 am

    Rusty’s body language is priceless. Now that’s an ecstatic dog! My dogs are jealous – they’ve never been to the beach.

    We love the beach – that looked like great fun! We hope you had a good Xmas and wish you a very Happy New Year!
    Our humans have not been as available for blogging duty lately!
    We will be discussing priorities in the New Year.

    Don’t let the stars get in your eyes,
    Don’t let the moooon break your heart!

    You are a smart dog Rusty with knowledge of all the important rules of life and the no water on the feeties is important to me also.

    Please keep the rules coming, so we all eventually learn them from you.

    Kisses,
    Stella
