Sun, Sand and Happy Scotties

IMG_4169

A few weeks ago we ventured away from the cold and foggy valley and drove over to the coast. These sorts of trips are few and far between, but always good for the soul when we do.

Human souls and scottie souls.

Before heading to the white sands of the beach, we strolled through town to pick up a few treats for the dogs and a little birthday gift to a very special little Wheaten Scottie who recently turned one.

Once we hit the beach, the leads come off of Duhgall and Fiona and away they went! They just ran and ran and ran and ran and had THE best time meeting other dogs at the beach.

A good rest is needed for them so they can go for round two, three and four. This is after round four of playing. I do believe they are tuckered out!

But not this guy! Just look at how happy he is!

Hi Becky! Oh, it looks and sounds like a wonderful day! Now I have to say every time I see the back and part side view of Douhgall's little head - I see Chloe Dawn. Again, Schnauzers and Scotties just must be cousins! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hey!
Do you sew?
I am going to learn to sew!
And make bags...maybe to sell!
Is it hard to learn to sew?
What kind of machine do you have...if you don't mind me asking?
I LOVE that ruffled bag!
SOOOO CUTE!
Just like YOU!
Hugs my friend!
Happy Day to you!
