Sweetie Pie

Adventures of an Ocean Newbie

We recently took a trip to California's North Coast. We've been before... Our cockapoo, Sweetie Pie, has not.

...in fact Sweetie Pie has never experienced the ocean.


She wanted to explore, but wouldn't venture too far without me.

She quickly realized the ocean isn't that good for drinking.

She spotted something interesting in the sand. Turned out to be a shell.

Sweetie Pie showing that mussel shell who's boss. (This is an empty shell)

Sweetie Pie spotted low flying Pelicans. She chased them...

...well, until the waves breaking on the shore chased her back.

...lucky for the Pelicans they got away.

...until next time Ocean (Where's my mom)

(There's Mom, watching the whole adventure.)

From a land locked guy, to all you Ocean people out there... I'm jealous, and so is Sweetie Pie. The Ocean is gift. (An iPhone story)

    @tbyrnes haha, Tricia, yes. She owned that shell. She couldn't quite figure out the waves crashing on the shore. And she drank too much salt water. So funny to watch.

    @karen Karen! We were near the Redwood National Park, near Klamath. We have relatives in Redding, so we visited them and drove to the coast. I must go back.

    @misseswray Mary, thank you so much. She's a sweet dog who on this very trip thought she was a bird dog. She loved the ocean, just so different than Utah. Loved this experience. We laughed

    Adorable! Yes, you are right about lucky beach folk.

  • willow3550

    My four-legged babies HATE the beach! Too many sounds and smells. I guess they are country folk at heart...

    @ninagraceless hi Nina, thank you! It was a blast on the beach. Watching our cute little sweetie pie turn into a high adventure hunting dog. Then quickly back into little lap dog sweetie pie
