Beach Bums

Continuing our tale, we next stopped at a place called English Camp. You can read the history of English Camp on this website.

While at English Camp, Mom and Dad put our long leashes on us and let us go swimming in the ocean!



The beach wasn't very nice and was covered with barnacles. Our leashes kept getting stuck on the barnacles, but it was still fun to swim and get wet. Dad threw rocks in the water and we swam to chase them.

After we went swimming, we saw some Canadian geese. Kat tried to hunt them down, but I had other ideas. Do you know that wherever geese are, they leave little tasty nuggets behind? And I don't know exactly what Canadians feed their geese, but whatever it is, it makes the nuggets so delicious that I just couldn't stop eating them. Mom thought it was gross, but I don't know how she even knew since she didn't try any.



Mom took Kat away from the geese and decided to work on some recall. Kat is very well trained and demonstrated an excellent Siberian recall.


The white picket fence you see at the end of the video surrounds the formal garden. Here's a video of Dad and me joining back up with Mom and Kat just outside the formal garden.



We have two more installments in our series about our big adventure. The next one will be dedicated to The Thundering Herd and the final one to Stormy of the Army of Four. Those are your clues!

I'm always looking for snacks left by other critters even though Momma never lets me munch on them.


Cool videos - we really liked the swimming one.

Geese snacks are awesome!

But we are confused. We are convinced that a recall is when the human calls us, we ignore them, and then re-call again and again. But Kat is doing something weird. Going in the general direction of the human. Why would she do that?

And we can't wait to see the next section!

Goose droppings! I keep telling Mom to buy us some but she claims she doesn't know where to get them. I'm not sure I believe her.

How lucky are youse guys to go swimmin g in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Did y'all see any Orcas? Usually the water in the Strait is cold, specially this time of year. We hope that the barnacles didn't hurt your paw pads. It sure looks like you had a good time with free snacks and all.

The OP Pack said...

Great videos, we loved seeing you two. Mom says she thinks only TD would go in the water, the two old ones hate to get wet! Goose poop, hmmmm, now there is a treat we need to try.
