BTs on the Beach

Miley and Howie had a great 4th of July celebration at the beach this weekend. There was barbecue, swimming, fireworks, and best of all…

The beach!

Miley has boundless energy. She could run up and down the beach for hours.

While Howie prefers to crash into the waves.

Time for a game of beach fetch!

It looks easy enough but…

Diving for the ball in all that sand is tricky! (Hint: She’s not even close. See the ball behind Howie’s feet??)

Beach Fetch: Who can bring it back first? Howie tries to steal…

*SLAM!* Howie executes a surprise body-check sneak attack!

Miley somehow manages to hang on to the ball!

He gives chase…

*SMACK!* I’ve seen UFC fighters take more pleasant hits than this! (And when I say UFC fighters, I mean Jon Favreau on Friends. *blush* “I know I’m no John Bon Jovi!” Nevermind.)

It’s just loose enough for Howie to get a grip…

He almost has it…!

Not so fast, little bro.

Then I take it and throw it again. Hehe. Beach fun!

    Love reading your blog Amanda and I’m always happy to see what your babies are up to. I used to have a silky/poodle, Tom, who looked like a silky. He never used to bark much. He would try and talk to me. This happens I think when you love them as much as I can see you love yours. I would love a camera like yours too. Your pictures are always so clear. Glad you had a great 4th of July.
    Cheers from Australia.

  11. Amanda Sevall

    Love it!!! I always enjoy your doggie pics!!! My Scarlet would fight to the bitter end to (a) keep the ball and (b) stay at the beach!! :)

  12. Sherry

    I love how they run together – and great photos by the way! The last one is classic – kinda how I feel at the end of a great beach day.

    My favorite photo is the last one. . . exhausted after a long day of play! I have two Irish Water Spaniels who play the same way. Aren’t dogs great?

    Your pups are the CUTEST! And your pictures are AWESOME! Love the one where they both have the ball in their mouths and the last photo! They must be a hoot to live with! :)

  21. ♥ Ellen ♥

    OMG, what unfettered JOY with those two dogs! I felt like I was there, without the sunburn of course! I could feel the sand kicking up and the slobber on the ball. I loved the pic of Miley at the end — looking like a tantrum and a pout at the end of a very fun day. Thank you so much for sharing!

  22. HeatherB

    Love your photos – your dogs have such expressive personalities and you capture them so well with the camera! :)

  23. Cre8tive Cre8tions

    I just love the pictures! I can never get action shots like that so clear!! And your commentary is awesome!!! Have you ever thought of doing a picture DVD to music with all of these great pictures? I make them for my kids and they love watching themselves, it’s like a scrapbook but you can watch it on your tv!! My family loves them too, and I enjoy making them.

  24. Jenni Roseland

    OMG-your dogs are SO CUTE! I love how you described their playtime! Had me giggling!

    And time to go home face was priceless!

    1. Lili Albright
