Beach Time!

     Hi, y'all! The other day we went to the beach. That's where the new header and profile pictures were taken. I was wonderful, of course. But you already knew that. ;)

      I'm probably going to get a lot of questions on the harness I'm wearing, so here's the answer. It's a Ruffwear Webmaster harness, size XXS, in "Twilight Grey". It's a great harness for hiking, swimming, escape artists, assisting older dogs, ect. I highly recommend it! Mom loves the handle on it, and used it to grab me when a wave went over my head went I went swimming. Yes, I swim!

Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola

  1. Hey Nola!
    Wow, you are a super-swimmer fur sure! Oh how I wish I could be there with you. We'd do some surf zoomies together. I love to go swimmie too. Great action pix!

  2. Wow, Nola, you weren't just wading, you were actually doggy paddling in that one picture! We're impressed! Because Riley's taller than you, she has to go out deeper into the ocean to actually be able to swim...there's a strict leash law at our beach, so I take her on the Flexi leash (normally hate those, but this is different) so she can go further out in the water than she would be able to with just the 6 foot leash. Our beach is only open to dogs in the cold months (go figure), so I don't wade in with her. Wish we had a beach open to dogs in the summer months!

    Anyway, great looking harness! I like that it has a handle on it. Of course, I wouldn't actually be able to pick Riley up with the handle as she weighs 55 lbs, but at least I could hang onto her with it if I needed to!

  8. Nola, I always love your beach pictures! Especially because I can tell how much you love being there! It looks like you get it all to yourself, too! Bonus!
    We live nowhere near any beaches... boo :(
    Super Weenie is awesome - great capture! I also especially love the one where your ear is blowing in the breeze... the 18th one, I think.

  9. This is totally weird and random, but do you ever worry about sand getting in her eyes? I pick at my pups way too much and get freaked out if I see a hair or a piece of fuzz in their eye, so I don't know how I would handle sand. Just wondering if that's ever been an issue for y'all.

    I love when you post beach pictures. She seems so happy and content. I would love to take mine to the beach (if I didn't live in the middle of Georgia!)--I think Harley would love the water and Pebbles would love the sand. They're long-haired doxies, though, and I'm sure that sand+water+hair would not be a good combination.

  18. That harness looks like it was made for you. I love chunky doxie feet. They're kind of my weakness.

  19. Some dog had an awesome time at the beach...I am a bit jealous! Looks like so much fun and it makes me miss my beach days!

  20. Stunning pictures! Makes me wish we lived near a beach! I love the picture with you look off to the side and the wind blowing your ear back. Too cute! I love your adorable little doxie feet too!

    Your harness is awesome. I love the leash as well. I have a Ruffwear leash with the same clip. Love that clip! Much more secure than your average clip (which Petal has been known to occasionally shake off; I don't know how she does it).

  21. Love all of your pictures. Looks like you had a sunny day too. I finally used our Webmaster harness on a hike the other day. It didn't seem to irritate Gretel's throat when she pulled (sat lower on her chest than some harnesses). I plan to get one for Chester too.
