Beach Visitors And Lots Of Furry Friends

Get a nice place at the beach and the next thing that happens – beach visitors! And one of them was a dead ringer for one of us!

Out for a walk . . . with three additional furry friends!

Our good friends from Charleston joined us today for a little walk and social time – David, Linda, Nia, Kody, and Cotton. Landon was so excited he squeaked and squawked through the entire walk. And we do mean every single step of the way. Just ask our visitors, who were asking for ear plugs by the end!

Wait! Who is on my picnic table.

When we got back to our campsite, Landon was a little quieter, mainly because he stood on his picnic table in the campsite and was happy. Except, he had to share his picnic table with someone.

Cotton approves of picnic tables!

Cotton thought the idea of picnic tables was superb. So much that he was asking his humans for his own picnic table at home. Maybe we have started a trend.

    Landon has the prettiest tail ever! But we love them all Don’t know how you walk them all! What happens when they see a challenge (squirrel,etc)

    What does Q-tip think of Cotton?

    Mom ‘n Ebby say: Landon certainly stands out amongst the Herd, with his beautiful bushy tail, and now, you say, with “sound effects” as well. Just wondering, is this vocal display because of the extra company, or is this going to be part of his routine on walks? And their friend, Cotton certainly looks at home on top of the picnic table. Going to have to build larger picnic tables, I guess. Hope you’re all having a wonderful outing!

      Landon squawks and squeaks when he gets excited. Normally, on a walk, he is quiet and walking within a few minutes. Yesterday, the excitement of new pals took a long time to wear off.
