Barking at the beach

This morning Mom, Dad and we boys headed to MY new Hanna Cowspotdog Park to pick up our yearly pass. Now we can access the park at the early bird time of 6.00 am which for us long hairs is the best time to go because that is when it is the coolest. Today we checked out the boardwalk at the farthest end of the park - it is the closest to the Mayport Naval Base so tends to be very quiet. We only saw one other person with his doggie - a big old Great Dane who was bouncing around having so much. We sniffed each other and made friends and I hope to see him again and I really liked him. Then I found the bestest and most smelliest thing ever - I even got to rub my face all over before Mom dragged me away. Mom said it was called a Horse Shoe Crab - I just called it wonderful! When we came home we had to wait at the entrance to our community for these guys to finish crossing the road. I told Mom to honk at them but she said that wouldn't be polite - so I woofed at them instead - (gotta love being able to drive around with the windows down :)

And Check out the video of me doing my happy woofin at the beach - yeah I think I am going to like this after all :)
