Going to the beach with Australian Labradoodles is one of the most fun things a person can do. I can’t get enough of it. From what I can tell, the dogs don’t mind it, either. So, I imagine you are ahead of me on this one and have already guessed where we were this weekend. I took a new friend and her beautiful pup for their first trip to Huntington Dog Beach.
Last November, I got to meet Susan and her pup Chloe (that’s Susan with Sam) at the Doodle Lunch in Pasadena that Curtiss (Beaumonde Labradoodles) hosted for us. It was interesting to see the great dogs from different litters. Elton, Chloe and Luke are littermates and they were all there at the lunch. I remembered Chloe being a really pretty pup in November, but seeing her again this weekend, I realized just how much she looks like her older sister Penny (in Sam’s litter). It’s so striking how much they look alike.
It’s been months since Luke has seen Chloe, but it did seem like he remembered her. He seemed excited to see her in the way that he’s excited to see Elton (his other littermate that we get to see a lot). Maybe I’m making things up. I know that Sam and Penny are bonded in a way that seems different from how they are connected to other dogs. I see it with Luke and Elton, too. Seemed like that’s what I saw with how happy Luke was to be with Chloe.
I really enjoyed the morning (as I do any morning I get to go to the beach with 2 or more dogs!). Susan and I walked up and down the beach and then popped over to Rivers End for breakfast and mimosas (sound familiar, Dan?). I took a lot of pictures, and haven’t edited all of them. Here are some of the pictures of our morning.
