Landon has learned yet another valuable lesson living among The Thundering Herd. Sometimes, when you aren’t looking, waves happen.
Some of our walks are on the beach. The beach is cool with all of its smells to explore, people to meet, and sand to dig. However, none of us have any interest in getting our feety-feet wet. Natasha enjoyed splashing along the edge of the water, but Landon has only shown a little curiosity. He has carefully walked just to the dry side of all waves . . . except once.
It was our post breakfast walk. And, well, what goes in, must come out. So Landon decided that he needed to go right there on the beach (No worries, Hu-Dad always has bags).
You should know that Landon – like Typhoon – is a Feng Shui Dog. For those who have not experienced the pleasure, this is a dog that has to spin and spin until facing just right before business can be done. Both Landon and Typhoon need several spins before the everything is ready.
In this particular beach episode, that position was facing due west. With the ocean to his back. So he never saw the larger than normal wave that pushed surf further up the beach and right through his paws. On the bright side, per Hu-Dad, it did speed the entire process up considerably.
