More Beach Playtime

What a beautiful day we had today - perfectly cool weather for the pack to hit the beach. 


The non-shibas were more than happy to dip their paws into the water; of course, the shibas stayed as far away as possible.


Shio and Nami are really getting along nicely. They are always chasing each other and playing tag. 


All in all a great day for everybody.

Shio and Friends

This morning, Shio met up with all his best friends at the beach. 

Too bad he was having a bit of a stomach issue, but otherwise it would have been a great time for him.

P.S. This lens is one of the best lenses I have used on any camera system, ever. Definitely worth buying if you have the m4/3 system. 

Dog-Friendly Beach

Post Sandy, we have not been able to find a dog-friendly beach for our pups to run around at. Luckily, Nami's pawrents knew of a place.

The beach was definitely dog-friendly, but it was a little dirty -- at least the part that was closest to the parking lot. 

Shio and Nami had a lot of fun sniffing and investigating the seaweed and the trash though. 


Luckily, as we walked further away, the beach got cleaner. Emi also relaxed and started running around.


Shio wanted to show Nami his affection for her by digging her a big hole. 


The heat got to be pretty unbearable though. After about an hour, we headed back to the car (and air conditioning!). 


All in all, a pretty good morning!
