This is the beach.
The beach is the place where the ocean (you know, the really wet and blue thing that’s like all over the Earth) meets the land stuff part (which is the rest of the Earth). There’s usually sand there. I like the beach a lot. I can smell it from a real long way away, even from the inside of the car. The other day I went to a beach in California, which is where I live. I met some other dog friends there and we had a really good time. There were some humans there too, and one of them had this green thing which—
At one point this other dog wanted it but I wouldn’t let him have it because I wanted it more and pretty soon we realized that we were never really being mean or arguing at all, we were just playing obviously and so now I have a cool new friend and woohoo yeah! Here we are:
Wait a minute… That might be a different green thing. Whatever, it doesn’t matter which green thing it was. What’s important is that it was green and it was a thing and, just like everything else in the entire world, it was fun to chew. Green things are the best, aren’t they? I mean, you’ve got that green thing, the other green thing, tennis balls… other stuff, probably… yeah. I like biting green things. And most other-colored things, too. Especially shoes.
The beach was a lot of fun. Look at this picture of me having fun:
Really great chewing toys were being thrown everywhere by everyone and all us dogs were just taking everything and running around and it was really fun. At least for the dogs, I think the humans were having fun too. Probably. I don’t really know how humans feel about dogs using dog toys that aren’t technically theirs. I mean, the humans own them, but they’re, like, dog toys. For dogs. So.
Yeah anyway the beach is fun but it’s also sandy. I mean, not like Sandy. Sandy is a person. Sand is, like, a bunch of little rocks all near the ocean, I think. It gets all over my hair, but whatever. It’s too fun for me to be bothered by it really.
I really like the ocean. Have I said that enough times? Is that clear? I don’t even know what’s on the other side. Does it go on forever? I don’t think so?? But I don’t know. I’ve never taken a geography class. I tried to find out, though.
The ocean is just a little bit too big for this pup. Plus, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t have green things.
So when I wasn’t trying to swim to wherever I could go I was just hanging out with these doggy buddies that I met and it was fun and I was chasing them around for a while.
And then we saw a chewable green thing in the distance, I think. Yeah we got distracted somehow and gave up, probably just to do something even funner!!
And then it was time to go! It was way too soon, I wish I could’ve stayed a lot longer, but oh well. The beach is really really great, and so is the ocean even though it’s really big and scary. But sometimes the biggest and scariest things are also the most beautiful. Because the ocean looked pretty beautiful to me. Anyway, catch up with you guys later!
