Salisbury Beach - March 9th, 2012

Think he's a little excited?

After the sanctuary (and the in-car confinement) the dogs were clearly ready for some off-leash fun so we headed north to Salisbury Beach - open to dogs and humans on the off-season. It was low-tide - there were lots of seagulls here, some seals on the rocks off-shore (I had no idea there were seals in Massachussetts!) and an expansive beach for the dogs to run like maniacs. Now - my three critters have never seen the ocean. We don't have sandy beach opportunities here as most of the lakefront on Champlain is either too polluted for swimming or is privately owned - and by the time Kipling was a strong enough swimmer (and big enough) we were smack in the toxic algae season here so he hadn't swam in any water other than our pool!

To say that there was great joy on the part of the goldens would be a colossal understatement. Some pics of the day - there are more on facebook if you're so inlcined - see the captions for photo credits - I left my camera in the van so I only had to worry about my three beasties instead of three beasties and a big lense!

OMD - awesome photos! We keep trying to find a secure place for Monty to run like that - we haven't had any luck...
