When we have time, Millie Mae and I still like to go to the beach, but we've been jogging and walking in our neighborhood more again now that the yellow flies have calmed down as the weather cools off. Millie loves the beach so much. When we first get to the beach and I let her off the leash, she sprints directly to the water and splashes around until her tummy and legs are nice and wet. She likes to chase off any birds that are hunting in the surf and will chase them through the waves until her feet can't touch any more and then will swim back. Millie loves to explore and find stuff on the beach including bread that people have tossed for the birds, or disgusting smelly dead things that she can push her face against and roll in. She likes to get sandy and ends up a complete mess by the time we get back to the car. I snapped a pic of her on the way home the other day, looking quite the scraggly puppy.
