I got MY beach back!!

I'm a happy happy girl because once again, I'm allowed to play on the entire stretch of beach at Kitsilano Beach!!!

The main beach is closed to doggies every year from April to October due to the fact that st*pid hoomans like to lie on the beach and be burnt by the sun. Seriously, what's wrong with them??

I was so happy today that for the first time since a loooong time ago, I was allowed back on MY beach!!

I was also very happy because even though my mum did get into her "trigger happy" mode, I didn't seem to be her focus today (yes that's a good thing, trust me!). She took lots of pictures of views from Kits Beach.

The following pictures were taken from relatively the same spot with a bit of a time lapse in between each picture.

Ok, so I did have to pose once...... Is it me, or are my nostrils the same size as my eyes?? Maybe I need a nose reduction surgery?

This is view from Vanier Park (part of Kits Beach) looking over False Creek to downtown Vancouver and English Bay.

View of Burrard Bridge, a six lane bridge spanning across False Creek connecting Kitsilano to downtown Vancouver.

Pretty sunset from the Maritime Museum

Me having a couple of ZEN moments.

Finally, ACTIONS from the dog beach!!

I received an anonymous tip (I did not know his name) from someone regarding my friend T-man

I couldn't believe my ears, so I HAD to go make sure myself.

I thought maybe the media or his agents had gotten to him you know, kinda like the Michael Jackson thing, because the T-man I know would never do such a thing, especially behind his supermodel girlfriend, Chelsea's back.

However, this blond T-man acted very suspicious, and he kinda had that guilty look on his face too. He kept moving away from me and not wanting me to get a good sniff of him because he knew I would recognize him!! It all made sense, since Chelsea and I are good friends, he didn't' want me to find out and tell Chelsea about it.

Of course I didn't think what he did was right or necessary to becoming a star, but being the good friend that I am, I wasn't gonna tell on him. Instead, I decided to warn him since I know how Chelsea likes her man black!!

But then this blond guy got all rude to me, told me to GO AWAY, and he actually sounded a little sissy. Right there and then, I knew I had the wrong guy all along. My friend T-man has manners. He would never have told me to GO AWAY even if he was blond, and he, would NEVER sound like a sissy!! NEVER!

So I ignored him and played with my ball-ball!!

BUT...... for some reason, everybody wanted my ball...... I mean, just look at them, don't you think they're all trying to get my ball??

Mum thinks I was being paranoid, but I know I was RIGHT!!! I don't go after other dogs' toys, so I expect the same from other dogs.

See....HE GOT MY BALL (while I was chasing off some other dogs who *I* thought wanted my ball too!!). So who is being paranoid??

Toby said...

You must not let your ball out of sight!!! I usually sneeze on mine. That seems to keep the others away from my toys!!

Great pics Miss Sunshade - that looks like a really nice beach. I am glad you can go there again.

Miss Sunshade,
You're right! My supermodel girlfriend would probably disown me if I went blonde, even though I might have more fun :) Plus, since I'm a natural black, maintaining a blonde bod would be both costly and a nuisance. My mom has enough trouble keeping my ears tangle-free without worrying about dark roots.

And who's that doggie spreading rumors of me on the beach? At least that blonde poodle got to play on a beach, while I was shivering from cold here! And, yes, I would NEVER tell you to go away. I would be thrilled to finally meet my blogging friend!!

By the way, I love your banner with your baby pictures!!

Nice to meet you.
A beautiful beach, the sky, an evening sun, and a dog and it that is important and wise are all included. Scenery in the central area of Burrard Bridge and the appearance to watch it are good and indescribable is good. The ball removing that two dogs unfold is indescribably pleased. And, the image that has been defeated is good for the end ..this...

Isn't that "ball" a "ring?" Cool beach. Wish I had a beach.

Deb said...

You are sooooo lucky to have your very own beach, but maybe your mom needs to post signs saying that to keep the other doggies away from your ball. I love the T-Man story line. That was soooo funny, hee,hee!!! You keep close watch on your ball from now on, O.K.?

Glad you like the BubbleShare. Your mommy did a great job with it and I'm so happy you have a link to me on your site. That's what we're all here help each other!

Your pal,

sunshade, i like the rolling pictures thingy you put up at the top of your blog! maybe i will get HM to check if she can put it up on multiply too :)

no, don't put yourself through a nose job, those are for insecure little vainpots! :p hee hee... you are a beautiful girl, and your mom knows it, or she wouldn't love taking pictures of you so much! :)

glad you got your beach back.

Nice beach Sunny, and beautiful baby pictures. Is it my imagination or were your spots darker as a baby?

Don't worry about your nose. You have beautiful eyes and velvety soft nose. Your mom just took a wierd-assed picture of you. As Mom would say "user error!" snicker.

I'm anxious for you to see my first lesson. I'm sure with my tutelage you will be come even more scary to strangers.

Hi Sunshade,
One of my humans is applying for a position at UBC! I think it's a long shot, but maybe someday we can frolic in the surf together.
Your friend, Lenny

Hi Sunshade,
Your beach is so beautiful! We sure wish we had a beach here to run along. Don't you dare get a nose job! It will make your face look all stretched out funny like those hooman movie stars. T-man would never be rude to you girl, that blonde was an imposter for sure! and keep those doggies away from your ball!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
Butchy & Snickers

Omigosh! My mom says that she remembers when False Creek real estate was held up by empty beer bottles. She rode the bus over the Burrard Bridge from Kitsilano to downtown all the time, so I guess she knows1

Personally, I would love to join you for romp on the beach & I would happy to share my ball with you!

PS - your link is up on the clubhouse wall

Sunshade said...

Booboo: mum actually thought that evil, annoying dog was funny! She said he was pesking everyone and the owner couldn't do anythign about it. I on the other hand didnt' think he was funny at all especially it took his owner forever to get my ball back!! Aren't those bubble share the coolest? I stole the idea from Roo. Can't wait to see yours up!!

Hey you Trio: Thanks for the compliment, I'm just happy that it was me mum was snapping away at. Funny, I am listed with Cinemazoo too.

Fufu: you are so RIGHT. It should be named the Sunshade Beach since I'm there everyday!!

Toby: hey little dude, I've never heard of sneezing on toys. I aught to try that out. Is it because of boogers....

Opy Opy: long time no see!! Yeah I'm so glad I got the whole beach back!

T-man: I'm so sorry about mistaking you for that blondy. I know you would never tell me to go away, you are a REAL gentleman, that's why a REAL lady like Chelsea has her eyes on you. So happy you like my baby pics!

Ume tyan: hello there, thanks so much for dropping by. I'm glad you liked the pictures, but don't tell mum or she won't snap out of her trigger happy mode ever...

Copper: is indeed a ring made out of tennis ball material...hehe!

Chiyo: Really, no nose job?? The rolling picture slide thingy is really cool, I can't wait to see yours up!!

Roo my idol: yeah I'm gonna try my best to keep my ball-ball close to me..... Thanks for the inspiration on the BubbleShare. Mum absolutely LOVES your blog!!

Yo Maxey: YUP, I think you'e right, it was "user error"!! Bad mommy!! are so observant, yes I was born almost completely black, and as I got older, the black started to fade. Of course, my sheep coats makes my colour lighter than usual as well.

Hey Lenny: REALLY?? Your hooman might be coming to UBC?? Oh you are gonna love it here, and we can go "squirrel patrolling" the campus together!! I"m sure between the two of us, we will catch evil squirrels!!

Dear Butchy & Snickers: ewww...stretched out nose on my bootiful face. Ok, I think the general consent is to NOT get a nose job. I would so love it if you guys could come here and run along the beach with me...

Joey: you read my mind!! Ball stealing dogs have no manners!!

Hey Dean-O: mum and I only moved to Vancouver about 6 years ago, so we dont' really know about the real estate part. But we are really enjoying being in the Westend! Is your mama originally from Vancouver?? Thanks so much for adding me to your link!!


Love nibbles to all,
Miss Sunshade

Mama is laughing so hard I am afraid she may stop breathing. I nearly panicked when I thought my T-Man had disguised himself to run off and meet with you.But, was just an imposter! WHEW....
I like T-Man dark.
You know what they say....once you go never go back
