The way it SHOULD be...




I took Catherine to the beach for a walk this morning after dropping Meg at school. It was perfect. What a difference a month makes! Labor Day Weekend is such a zoo. Today it was unbelievably quiet. All we could hear was the sound of surf and seagulls. The only people there were the fisherman and a few runners.

The kids love the beach club and they have a ball. My husband and I joined for them. Everyone who goes there is very nice, but it's constant chit-chat. It's really relaxing to just walk and not say a word.

When my chocolate lab, Abby was younger I used to take her to the beach for runs all the time. There's nothing better than watching a lab in her element swimming in the ocean or sprinting full speed along the shore. There's nothing worse, however, than the ensuing sandy mess in the mini-van! Sand and stink be damned. I owe that dog a beach run and she's goint to get it!

I took my dog to the beach yesterday and he ran like a maniac. He had a fab time too.

Ironically soaking one's own self in the ocean is totally okay but when your owner soaks you and gives you a bath? That right there is grounds to look pitiful and bust out the "why you no love me, mama?" face.

Abby looks just like my Biscuit. Labs are just the best! If only they could sweep the hair off the hardwood....
