English Bay

It was such a gorgeous day, I had a hard time sitting at home doing nothing while waiting for my strained groin muscle to heal. So I sulked here, sulked there, sulked upstairs (mum: and got stuck), sulked in the garage beside Georgie, and FINALLY, mum gave in.... (mum: sigh.. bad mummy, she should've really been resting...)

Mum and Veronica talked, and they decided to take me and STINKY to English Bay - the beach across the water from MY beach (Kits Beach). Usually, there are not nearly as many dogs at English Bay as Kits beach, so mum thought it would be a good place for me since I wouldn't be running around with other dogs. (mum: she still has the strained Iliopsoas (groin) muscle)


I was being a good girl, trotting up and down the beach minding my own business with my RING in my mouth (of course) when somebody decided he was gonna take my RING!!!

Didn't he know the whole point of going to English Bay was because mum didn't want me to run or do all the twists and turns when other dogs try to steal MY RING?????

Not only was he being incosiderate (you know, not allowing my strained muscle to rest), he came from ALL directions.

He came from the FRONT (as a kangaroo - the animal he was named after),

He came from the RIGHT,

He came from the LEFT,

(just look at my squinting face, he missed my ring, almost gave me an ear piercing!)

He came from BEHIND,

Now really, I have blown him up from the above picture, doesn't he look like he's got rabies??

(mum: your own position isn't that much BETTER...hehehe)

Anyway, finally, I decided the only way to get rid of him was to do this

Here's a video that shows you they ALLL wanted MY RING you know....

(I wanted them to notice my RING so I barked, and when they came close, I scared them away!!!!!)

However, when STINKY stopped chasing me for my RING, I stopped feeling special. So I went and taunted him.....hehe..

I went up to him with my RING in my mouth and pushed into him while wagging my tail,

Or, I taunted him like this!!!

I loved it! You know, me taunting, him chasing, and yet never been able to get a hold of MY RING...


See here, I was zen-ing, yes, I do that sometimes.

I just sit quietly and look out to the ocean. People always stop to ask mum what I'm doing, because there could be lots of dogs playing behind me, and yet, I would just sit there and ZENNNNN. No wonder my Aire-Zens are always so powerful!

Mum, disrupted my zen-ing by throwing a rock.....

Not only did she disrupt my very important Aire-Zen recharging time, this ended up happening as a result!!!!


It didn't take long tho before he decided to put some disgusting seaweed in his mouth and let go of my RING.

MY Veronica found a nice stick, since MY Veronica found it, it was MINE!

I wanted the stick, but I also wanted my RING at the same time,

So this ended happening,

And yes, I was very satisfied!!

Some people call it being greedy, I call it........

Hehehe, love your ears in the last photo Sunshade.

Looks like a fun day even if it wasn't quite what the doctor ordered!

Yours & Jaffa's crazy poses are more odd than mine the other day!

I met another Airedale called Jack yesterday on my walkies, we are taking over!

It is exactly like rabies.
And, the ring is great, and all dogs are collected.
However, the captured thing was splendidly done with the stick as for
a great ring. :)

I love the Zen thing, Sunshade. I think that's soooo cool that you do that!

Being an Airedale sounds a lot like being a Pug. I think everything should be mine, too!

Puggy kisses

Toby said...

Sunshade, can you tell me what you think about when you're in the zen-like mode??

And yes, I agree. That one particular picture of Jaffa does look rabie-like. Hehehe...

Excellent pics Miss Sunshade!!

We have a beach here too - only it snowed yesterday so no beach trips for me yet!!

Oh and I think I would like one of those rings - I will have to let my humans know this is on my wishlist!!

Have a happy day - Dory

Liberty Doo Dah said...

Those are happy content ADT ears in that last picture! I love the insane Jaffe look! That's funny! snicker, snicker!

Rachel said...

Lovely pics and lovely beach Sunshade! Pity that Jaffa tried to steal your ring! I have one just like that that I take to the beach with me - I'll have to put some photos of me with it on my blog! If he tried to steal mine I'd probably just let him have it...I'm too soft!

Lots of licks,

Those were some GREAT pictures, Sunshade! I have never been to the beach. Or the ocean. We don't live near the ocean so I probably never will see one. You are so lucky!

That's IT! I'm moving to Canada. You have beaches and sun and nice weather. It's April and it's COLD here. Will you distract the mounties while I sneak across the border?


ps. I hope your Iliad muscle gets better soon. Those long journeys put a strain on ya. Haha! I made a punny.

Amber-Mae said...

Wow, your mommy always lets you play in the beach almost everyday. So kewl! I never get to do that becoz 1st of all in Malaysia, most of the people here who are generally malays, don't really like it becoz of the fact that we're dogs(no fair!) and 2ndly, the beach is like 4 hours drive from our home sweet home. So sad...

Love licks,

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Sunshade,
You always get to have fun at the beach! So lucky!! Mom says she'll faint if she needs to shower me every time I get back from the beach so no beach time for me. Bah, she's so LAZY!!

PerfectTosca said...

Wow you look like you had a blast! My Woman said to tell you that you are looking beautiful as usual. She always swooms when she sees Airedales. I'm biting my foot here!
