On holiday...


Last weekend I was away at the bach ("bach" is the Kiwi term for a small holiday house) sleeping under the stars (on the deck on soft outdoor furniture - normally I'm an inside dog), enjoying BBQ food, going for long walks with Enzo and my humans, meeting other dogs on the beach, going for swims and even chasing Enzo and seagulls up the estuary (which is on the other side of the peninsula).













  





(Enzo proving that he can run twice as fast as I can,  and four times as fast as the male human!  Of course Enzo forgets his name as soon as he sees a seagull, and I only remember to stop running and turn around when they call out my second name which is "Food")



I ask you, what more could this Golden Retriever want than to spend summer by the sea? I'm counting down the days until we  escape Auckland and go there again.

Enjoy your weekend wherever you are,

Woofs,
Riley

Wonderful pictures of your seaside holiday. What is not to enjoy? Running, chasing, eating, paddling and swimming and even sleeping outdoors on the soft furniture.
Big envy, I shall have to have words with my Humans.

We are always afraid Monty would swim out and not come back. He tends to forget us even when he is attached to us by a leash!

I love your name, Riley, and the reason for it! It looks like you are living the "life", enjoying the gorgeous sea and your family. You are very lucky dog!

Thank you for that beautiful definition for "Shyla" that you left over at my blog. It is truly wonderful. I initially named her "Shyla" because one meaning is "daughter of the mountains" but I like your meaning even better!

Such a lovely post! Happy holidays!!! We just came home from the beach too .. Polly loved it!

Dexter said...

Sure looks like a good time. I've never even seen the ocean. You were so far away on the beach. My momma would freak out if I ran off that far. It's a trust thing.

Kisses,
Dexter

You always have the funnest (if that's a word)of holidays. I have yet to take a holiday at the sea with my dogs. I'm sure they'd love it!
It's been a dream of mine for a long time now....
The anti is that it's a long journey for the pooches (usually about 6 hours from home - and that's without dogs - so you can imagine).
I love the close-up photo of your two...beautiful dogs.
sending lots of love to you all.
