Walk on the beach

I don't plan on updating this blog daily but I'm just so excited because my mum decided to brave the horrible weather and take us to the beach! Luckily it stopped raining as we got there and the beach was empty so we had lots of space to run around!

My mum took this little black box thing she kept pointing at us where ever we went! She got a few good pictures though, we wouldn't stay still for long.

Weeeeee! :D
We love this beach because there is not only miles and miles of sand but there's a river and in the winter there is a big lake which freezes over, not to forget the sand dunes and the little woods right at the end. Its one of my favourite places.
On a clear day you can see across the bay to the mountains but because of the rain we only saw a little bit of them today.

But that didn't bother me I was far too busy showing my brother and sister how to run properly!

 Daisy Boo is still faster than me though, hmph! Hopefully not for long though! 

Almost got her!
Dante and Daisy Boo spent most of their time playing with this thing called a 'ball', mum or grandma throw it and they go silly chasing after it! I don't see what the fuss is about personally, I'd rather be exploring!

See how silly they look chasing that ball?
I did enjoy splashing in the tide, they say us Great Danes aren't supposed to like water but I can't get enough, I even went properly swimming last week. My mummy says its because my brother and sister are 'water dogs' so I want to copy them- I do not! Although they sure make the water look fun!

Mum was happy with all the pictures she took with the black box she brought with her and said we all looked very happy on all of them.  I don't see why we wouldn't be happy, what's better than a run on the beach with your best friends?

Release the hounds!!!!
Me and my 'zoomies'...what ever they are.
Daisy Boo doing what she does best!

Look at her! She is like a greyhound, i can't keep up :(

Oh! Now shes chasing me!!!
She does look cool though.

 I love to wrestle with Dante, but he seemed to bothered about that stupid ball!

Play with me!
Play with meeee!
No fair! :(
Then he goes and tells me off, so moody!

Mum was happy because she got some good shots of me, I normally bounce around like a loony and its hard to get a 'normal' photo of me, the cheek!
I do look a bit special here....

and here....
I do look extra dashing here though don't you think? 
After the beach mummy took us home and we had a tea of raw lamb and pasta! Yum yum! For an extra special treat she even gave us some bones to chew on. She then made us pose for one last photo.

Me now...compared to me in June....

Haven't I grown a lot in 3 months? Even mum was surprised.

Till next time


  1. Your photos just get better! They are SOSO good they capture all their movements and expressions! I want to do some drawings from them!! I really hope you plan to keep this up, its so entertaining to read! Like the diary of a dog! And yes Sampson, you do look "extra dashing" in that last photo! And those last two comparing pics are actually shocking!
