Life is a Beach (And this one is for the dogs.)

Manasquan, New Jersey, has a beautiful beach on the Atlantic.

But from April 1 to October 31, it is strictly for humans.

However, it also has a beach on the Manasquan River, which feeds into the ocean.

And this beach is for dogs.

Penelope and I checked it out.

Although Penelope is a sporting dog, water sports aren’t a part of her deal.  Instead, her idea of a good time is rolling in the sand, seaweed and shells. But I voted nay and I’m bigger than she is. So we compromised and walked along the shore.

Penelope met a Yorkie named Lexi.

And a lab named Moose.

Moose seemed to say, “Come on, Penelope. Look at that yellow lab having fun.”

Put unlike the yellow lab, Penelope wouldn’t put a paw anywhere near the water.

Instead, her interest leaned toward a nearby café which sold happy meals for dogs.

So while the other dogs frolicked, Penelope snacked.

And everyone enjoyed the dog days of summer.

Lucky dogs!
