A bit of this and a bit of that
Question 1 - do we ever dig in the sand or roll on the seaweed at MY beach. The answer is no - we have never shown any interest in digging (have never done it at home either although the Dweeb will occasionally "dig" at the rug to make it more comfortable to lay on) and sadly there has only ever been ONE time at my beach when some seaweed washed up and YES - I did enjoy a good roll on it. For some reason my beach is "too" perfect. Lots of flat white sand and nothing else. Hardly anything ever washes up apart from the occasional jelly fish and it is VERY rare to even find any shells. Mom says it is sunbathers delight beach but not much fun at for us beachcomber types looking for treasures :)
Question 2 - how does Mom get us to pose so well for our photos. Sigh ! - trust me this is not something we enjoy but we have been doing it for so many years now that the moment Mom says "wait" we know just to sit/lay still and get the photo's over quickly so we can go back to sniffing. Well at least I do....Dweeb just plods along next to Mom's feet and NEVER sniffs anything - there is something seriously wrong with that boy - he won't even pee when we go out on walkies! One other thing - can you believe Mom doesn't even carry treats on our walk so we do all that posing for FREE - isn't this against some doggie modeling rules?
An update - You may also remember we have had two snake in MY backyard - a brown garter snake and then a few weeks later a turquoise garter snake - both of which are quite harmless. What is odd is we saw both of them in exactly the same spot by the fence. Well look what I found on Tuesday - the snake skin and you guessed it - it was in exactly the same spot where we saw the two snakes previously. Mom says she has now seen MORE snakes while living here in the USA then she ever did in all her 40 years back in Australia.
We are hoping all this stormy weather will churn up the sea a little and there might be some treasures to find in the next few days - providing we can convince Mom to go out in the cold - yesterday it was 80 degrees and tomorrow they are only forecasting 50 and that is FREEZING to Mom :)
