Beach Babies

Last week we took the dogs with us to Wilmington.  It was a week of firsts for the girls.  Their first overnight stay in a hotel and their first visit to the beach.  

They LOVED the beach.  Here's some photos documenting this monumental occasion:

For those of you who know Lavender, then you will understand the significance of this 'action shot'.  Lavender only gallops if a squirrel is nearby.  There were no squirrels, or birds, just open sand dunes that she zipped through.

More galloping, followed by playing 'tag' with the waves.  This is the same dog that would sit by my feet at the dog park instead of playing with other dogs.  Stare blandly at the lake when taken to the local greenway.  Trot, but never gallop, along a trail in the mountains.

Dave with the girls.  No treats needed to get every one's attention (truly a first).

Bailey chillin' right before a wave comes and freaks her out.  Lavender, aka Energizer Bunny, kept going and going and going . . .

love those pics!! My dogs have only been to lakes - not the beach and Nikki doesn't like getting wet - silly lab. Liam will only walk out in the water until he thinks his feet won't touch anymore and he stops - silly golden...
