My daughter stayed at a friends house last night, so i ahd to go pick her up after i finished work. They live near a place called Herne Bay which is on the coast. It was a hot day today, so i suggested to MIL that she come with me and we take the dogs to the beach afterwards.
Harvey has been to the beach before but Seth has never been. He LOVED it! Chasing sea gulls, swimming, laying in the cool water, meeting new friends, 'niffin new smells. They were such good boys and we had such a nice time that we decided to drive further along the coast and get some fish and chips for supper. Now, this was probably the biggest challenge. Seth is a pretty nervy dog, he doesn't like loud noises, crowds etc. He is a country boy at heart and only ever leaves our little village if he needs to go to the vets. He was a bit wary at first, but was coping well. We got our fish and chips and went to find somewhere to sit. It was busy, so the only place we could sit was near the clock tower, probably not the best place in the area. there were a gang of 'youths' messing about on bikes, the car park was behind us and the boy racers were racing around in their old bangers with dodgy exhaust pipes. Lots of noise and chaos. Seth was a bit wary but soon followed his brothers lead and lay at our feet. he didnt appear stressed,no panting etc. Afterwards, they got our fish tails as a treat and a little icecream.
I think this was a really good experience for Seth, at the end of the day he didnt want to get back in the car! We had to coax him in with some liver treats! We ended up being down there for 4 hrs. The boys are shattered!
Awww, I bet they will sleep good tonight!

Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.
Sounds like a good day for the boys. I bet they are two tired dogs.
What a nice day for everyone - what a great experience for Seth!
Sounds like a great day.
Never had the tail on my fish and chips.
What a fun day and I bet they are tired.
Mmmmm.... fish tails and ice cream!

Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
Sounds like a great day with the boys! What a good experience for Seth! Yes, where are the pics??
A fun day at the beach is worth putting up with some rowdy kids.
