Hi all! Here are the pictures from Tuesday's beach adventure! We went to St. George Island, one of the most beautiful "forgotten coast' beaches in Florida that's also dog friendly!
I got to go off leash, I've been working hard on my recall and Mom let me off to run and play as much as I wanted! But as soon as she called me I dashed back and sat in front of her for my neck sratchies!
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
Note from Dachshund Nola's mommy: I was very proud of how far Nola has come in her training! She did a great job, I'm so happy with her. Beach= best place to work on off leash training
I met a new friend! And I sat politely and quietly by Mom's side while the peeps talked to his person.

Never a bad time for a photo shoot!

So beautiful

I'm in Doxie heaven!

Jelly fish

Look no leash!

Where are my sunglasses? It's bright!

Off leash at the bay side

There were hundreds of these Jellyfish washed up. So sad



  1. It looks like you sure had a fun time. You look so cute in your pink outfit. That looks like Mollie Jo's brother Bobo you met. I know it can't really be them because they live in Kentucky, but he is a sharp dressing poodle just like the one you met.


  2. Oh Nola, I loves da 9th photo down and then da 16th one down...and of course da diggin' foto! I has nevers dug in sand, is it fun? I likes to dig.


  3. All of these pics are great Nola, but the 3rd to last one of you looking up at the camera is just fantastic!! Such a pretty girl:)

  4. That's so good of you to come back when called! Indiana definitely needs to work on that a lot!

  5. Thank you for taking me to the beach with you! I have never seen a sorry some of them washed up on shore. You certainly look good on the beach, my friend!

  6. I want that pink dress! Where did you buy it! Ginger, Tasha and Anna Rose NEED it!

    We Dachsies With Moxie LOVE the beach- are looking forward to going to South Carolina again!

  7. wow you are so lucky not only do you have a beautiful place to visit that's dog friendly-but you are trained enough to go off leash! you look very pretty in pink too!

  8. What a wonderful beach adventure you had! It looks like it was a great day for the beach and some training!

  9. Oh what fun Nola, Good job on the coming back I cant say that I would do the same!! bol


  10. Oh Nola, nice work there, and what a pretty place to train!

  11. Grrrrreat that you trusted your peep to behave while she was off your walkin string. You have trained her very well.

    Did you have peanut butter with the jelly fish?

    You certainly look CUTE in your pink hoodie dress.

  12. I am so proud of your off leash skills!! Way to go! Your pictures are so beautiful!! I want to go to the beach so badly!


  13. Woohoo, Nola! What a good girl! Your momma got some great pictures.

  14. Hey Nola - that looks like a wonderful beach adventure! What a great place. Mum thinks that washed up jellyfish is a "blue bottle" or "stinger" as we call them here. If she is right they are common in warmer waters and deliver a terrible sting to peeps with those really long tentacles....very painful. Be careful because they can still give you a sting if you put your nose on them when they are freshly washed up!

  15. Wow, the beach looks beautiful and I love your pink dress! Why are the jellyfish washing up on the shore?

    Your pal, Pip

  16. It looks like you had a great time Nola! Mom is hoping to take us to the beach this summer. I love your dress!

  17. this looks like the best day! sand looks like it is great for digging and you look so pretty at your beach photo shoot!

  18. Oooooh! Great pictures. Looks like you had a fun filled day.

  19. Nola, you are the most beautiful bathing beauty. Good job on the recall...that's very important. Glad you got to dig too...also, very important.

  20. The beach is the only place I let Gretel off too. Her recall is pretty good but it does allow we to work on it there without as much risk as other places. I figure on the beach there are only two places she can go...and one way is to me. Luckily she hasn't taken off running the other direction yet because I have doubts I could catch this fast little rabbit :)

  21. you look so darn cute! You did dig and look for gold, BOL

  22. What a whole lot of FUN! We love especially the picture of you with your tail straight up!

  23. I can tell you had an awesome time at the beach Nola. You ARE doing great on your training. Mommy is doing a fantastic job with you. Wish that we had a beach near us. I would love to go swimming. Mommy said I can't swim in the ponds here 'cuz of the snakes and alligators. Dang it all!!

  24. Hey Nola!
    Wow, what a pawesome beach adventure! Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Digging for dead fish is a great way to spend the day. Your pink dress is so pretty and you look amazing. Love your header pix!!

  25. Could your jacket be cuter?! (correct answer: nope!)

  26. Hey Nola,

    You're such a good girl to do that recall thing, my Mum won't let me of cos she says I 'can't be trusted' - doh!! It's not my fault I'm a herding Dog and what to chase everything that moves! :)

    Have fun and by the way, you look super pretty :)

    Your pal Snoopy :)
