LOOK! The sky is bluuuuuuuuue

I couldn't believe it when I saw this today!!!

It's been so wet and gloomy for the last week or so over here in Vancouver, I thought I'd never seen the sun again. So I hurried mum off work, and made her take me to the beach. Look at how happy I was to see mum with her dog walking clothes on and my harness in one hand!! Soo happy that I had trouble controlling myself....

So we went to Kits beach where I swam a little despite the freezing cold...

As usual, I had to do I few poses. But my eyes made sure they let mum know I wasn't pleased about posing!!

I pushed my ball/ring around with my nose,

but it got all sandy..... I hate to get sand in my mouth, and I was so frustrated because it didn't matter what angle I was trying to pick the ring up at, I always got mouths full of sand..... Can you see how p$ssed I was?

Then I met this dog named Kipp.

At first, I thought he was a Border Collie. You see, I have this thing about Border Collies, because I was attacked by one when I was about 2 years old. That meanie punctured my ear (I wanted to get an earing by the way, but mum said NOO.....), and really hurt me. So now every time I see a Border Collie, I try my best to really bug him. What I mean by "bug" is not attacking. What I do is I either try to break his "concentration" when he is staring intently at his owner (most of them do, which I can never understand why they would want to pay so much attention to their owners), or I try to cut him off while he runs after the thing he was staring at his owner to throw. I just do my very best at being "in his face" and being "a pain in the a$$" all the time if you know what I mean. Of course, if the Border Collie happens to have a short temper (which many of them do, and it's grrreat) and snaps at me, then VOILA, I get my excuse to get my revenge (on my earing-less ear)!!

So usually if we meet a Border Collie, depending on my body language, but most often, mum will distract me and we move on.

Fortunately, Kipp just had the colouring of a Border Collie, but he looked and acted nothing like one. I really liked him and wanted to play with him so bad, BUT....

He told me he was worried about MY #1 - #4....... He said somebody told him to never mess with terriers since they are ruthless creatures. MY #1 & #3 are terriers. Then he said he didn't want to lose his hocks to the Sheltie who is MY # 2. He also said the sheer size and substance of MY # 4 sent shivers down his spine.

So Kipp thought it was a better idea for him to flirt with some other GUY!!

At first, I thought the reason he was staying away from me was really because he was afraid of MY #1 - #4. However, after much observation,

I came to my conclusion.....

I respected Kipp's wishes, and moved on to my next target.

But this guy, look at what his first question to me was!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!

Anyway, we all had a great time playing together, and personally, I think if another Resident Evil movie were to be made, all four of us should be in it!!! I know we are no dobermans....but....

Now if my buddies don't make the cut, I think at least *I* should make it!! Not exactly the way I had imagined my break to stardom, but still, it's better than nothing.

sunshade, your neighbors must think you are murdering squeaky toys! That video is great!

When I was younger a greyhound bit my ear off! the hole tip is gone! So I know how you feel when you see a certain breed.

Sunshade, the sky in the first pic looks great. I can understand why you rushed your mum home to take you out to the beach. Hum.. What's up with Kipp. I hope there wasn't any brokeback going on there.
