Huntington Dog Beach

Yesterday, we decided to take Kelsey to a dog beach Brian had read about. It's in Huntington Beach, and is called, oddly enough, Huntington Dog Beach.

It was AMAZING. Off-leash dogs, running around like maniacs, taking flying leaps into the water... and our Kelsey was among them. She was BESIDE herself. This was a far cry from the Kelsey who was petrified of the ocean when she was a baby! This time she flung herself in and we all discovered that she can SWIM, just like the good Lab that she is.

In some of these pix, she's wearing her gentle leader nose harness, because Mommy has trouble controlling her while Dad is gone (which he was for a time, getting all our stuff from the van). She spent most of the time off-leash, in the water with her big brother.

A great time was had by all!

My Dog would be in HEAVEN! He LOOOOVES to swim and sadly, doesn't get the chance too often anymore - our off leash doggie park has a 'pond' and quite frankly - the water that sits there gets VERY nasty very quickly...there's no 'fresh water' flowing into it from any lake or river or anything - just a holding pond that gets 'refreshed' by rain from time to time-
Maybe Bosco can come and live with you all??

Baby dog is mega jealous. There's a creek here where we take her swimming (because he neurotic Mama won't let her swim in lakes or any other standing water - fear of blue green algae poisoning) but it's been so dry here there's almost no water in it.

She would be in heaven at a beach.
