(Ellwood:) Holidays are such fun! 
Beach holidays are super fun!
I especially love Sand Frisbee!
(In case you don't know what 'Sand Frisbee' is, it's what I call it when I jump in the air and bite at globs of wet sand that are tossed at me.)

Of course, jumping is fun, but getting people to throw sand for me is a lot of work and no matter how cute I try to make myself look, no one will do it for me all day long and I can't throw the sand for myself, so....
..when there is no jumping to do, I dig!!
Dig, dig, DIG!!
Digging is also fun!!

 (Ginger:) Paff...jumping after icky wet sand then trying to spit it out from your mouth is not my idea of fun. Nope. I prefer to run all over the beach!!

And since there are other dogs, I naturally MUST police every one of them and make sure they know that I am the Beach Boss.

Sadly, for some reason Mom thinks that me running around bossing other dogs is NOT a good idea, so she attached me to a piece of driftwood that was stuck in the sand.
Hmpf!! Ah well, don't worry, it wasn't very hot out (hey! we were waaaay up north on the Baltic Sea in northern Poland) and there was a lovely breeze that sang sweet songs to me.

When we weren't on the beach, we were walking in the forest. Look! Our friends the Irish Terriers were there, too...
Remember Agent, Eureka and Berda (the grandma)?? 
Yep, that's them! We were on holidays TOGETHER!

 Holidays are terribly draining and after a day of digging, jumping, playing, and bossing (policing!!), our dawgs is tired!!

 But not so tired that I can't give a few kisses to Elioth!

 Admit it, he does make for a great pillow!! haha!

 And while we are out working hard as dawgs, would you believe 
those lazy, good-for-nothing cats were just lying around!?
(FYI: the kittens came on holiday, too! Since Tiny HATES to travel, she stayed home to hold down the fort - our neighbor came to feed and love her during our absence.)

HA!! So since they can do it, WE MUST ALSO!!

Good night...the sun is going to take a big nap so I think this would be the perfect time for us to wish you a good nights' sleep!!
Yawn.... Good night!!!

That 'enormous litterbox' gave so much happiness! LOL!

Au and Target said...

Welcome back! You are such a silly dog; we love it! But Au thinks cats should not be pillows. He's like that...

Karen Jo said...

I am really glad that you had such a great time on your vacation. I'm not so sure about the giant litter box, but I would have loved the forest part.

those sleeping shots are the best shots ever and loved the beach ones too - made us all feel so happy.! We haven't been visiting because we have been away and then encumbered with extra work that going on holiday entails. Lovely to be back. Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx
