The World According to Bella | "Beach Buzz"
My health has improved so I’ve been allowed to resume blogging. But my beach activities have been restricted which means I am not off leash as much. Perhaps I’ve indulged a bit too much in the glorious seafood buffet that seems to stretch for miles. Today Mr. C was quick to bury the crab before I spied it. I must have a short memory about crabs since that’s what made me sick in the first place and sent them into a tailspin. Or maybe it was the crab legs dangling out of both sides of my mouth that did it. But really Mr. C and Mrs. S should be happy. I used some self-control and passed up the jelly fish that had washed ashore.
I’ve made more friends on our trip than Mr. C and Mrs. S. I seem to have developed a beach fan base. Some even call me by name when they pass by. I’m friendly and a lot of the people I meet seem to need a ‘pet fix’. I hear stories about how they miss their pets left at home. Sometimes I get compliments on how pretty I am and sweet. But it’s my antics that really catch the beach walker’s attention. I can run at a breathtaking speed down the beach hoping to catch one of those darn birds soaring overhead. But they seem to be too fast for me. I like running in and out of the surf hoping to catch a wave to ride back in. Mrs. S makes sure I am always prepared for any water emergencies. My doggie harness vest inflates to a life jacket if I need to pull the cord.
My beach adventures have expanded to a new area, the dunes. And now I have bunnies on the brain night and day. I’ve seen many bunnies scurry under the boardwalk especially at dusk. Mrs. S freaked out when I discovered a bunny head in the sand dune. I was proud of my discovery showing it to her. But she kept screaming “Drop it, Drop it!” Lucky for Mrs. S I was willing to trade the head for some doggie snacks.
With bunnies always on my brain walking the high boardwalk over the dune can often get exciting, especially when a bunny runs underneath. Yesterday Mr. C almost lost his grip on my leash. At one point I was dangling over the boardwalk railing. But Mr. C won the battle and I lost the bunny.
As you can tell I am in dog heaven here. Several restaurants advertise being pet friendly. I have been allowed to dine al fresco. One place even had a doggie menu with several items that made me drool. When I asked Mrs. S what a charcuterie platter meant I knew that would be just the meal for me.
I ‘m working on trying to convince Mr. C and Mrs. S that we need to extend our stay. As you can see I’m in no hurry to leave. Besides there is still snow on the ground at home."
