The World According to Bella | "Beach Buzz"

"This is no April Fool’s Day joke. I’m still in the south enjoying sunshine, life at the beach with no snow or ice in sight. I’ve heard that the polar vortex has yet to cease its icy grip. The forecast is for more snow Up North.

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."

Love, Bella
