We had such a nice day at the beach yesterday…
An informal Shiba Inu Forum get together turned into a Bay Area Shiba meetup.
Ran into Maya again! She was too busy playing to say hi though.
Lots of frisky Shibas and young pups! Bowdu was definitely on the large side, compared to most of the crowd.
Bowdu kept his grumpiness to himself, for the most part. He didn’t really care to play with any of the other Shibas, but he did let a total stranger scratch his belly, which impressed me! Bowpi stayed on the periphery much of the time, perhaps because she didn’t want to walk anywhere near wetness.
Basenji’s worst nightmare!
At one point, Bowpi started to help herself to a baby cup full of apples and raisins that she found on the beach. I was so angry at the inconsiderate asswipe who left that behind, and sincerely hope that it was a simple case of airheadedness and not a deliberate attempt to poison any dogs. Luckily, Bowpi isn’t much of a glutton, so even if she did eat some, she didn’t have many before she surrendered her prize to me. I took the cup and hung it up in a bush, out of reach, since there weren’t any trash cans on the beach.
Maybe the raisins accounted for a sudden burst of psychosis, when Bowpi decided to scale the steep seaside cliff…
… and perch herself on a ledge overlooking the whole beach.
Bowpi doesn’t always know how to choose the easiest route down, so I was honestly a little concerned. But frankly, I was underestimating her agility. She knew how to handle herself just fine. She was just looking for the driest possible spot for one final poop…
This might not be her favorite park, but it’s definitely one of mine. So like it or not, we’ll be back.
I know, the horror.
