It was Mimzy’s first trip; actually, it was his first big outing, period. I thought I was going to have to carry him most of the time, but he surprised me by pulling on the leash in front of me like he was a Siberian Husky pulling a sled team. (We need to work on manners.)
Of course he was popular with the young and old alike, so I got stopped every few feet for a petting session. Mimzy was in 7th heaven. Everyone thought he was the most adorable puppy in the world, and I’m afraid I have to agree. 🙂
He wasn’t very patient when I wanted to stop for awhile and sit on the sand and just enjoy the sounds of the waves and the warm sun. He wanted to move. But I insisted, and, since I’m bigger than he is, I won.
It was a good afternoon. I needed that sunshine. I cranked up the tunes in my car – my favorite beach-day music (see the Shifty video below) – and smiled my way there and all the way back home again. Every time I go to the beach, I promise I’m going to go more often. It’s a little luxury this Indiana girl never had growing up.
I think Mimzy enjoyed himself, too.
