Last Tuesday we hooked up with some fairly new friends for a trip to the beach. We didn’t go to ‘our’ beach but another one we like about 45 minutes away. It was a perfect Winter’s day for a beach walk and our dogs all had a blast. You may be wondering how new friends can also be old friends? Well, our 3 friends would all be considered senior or old dogs! Bridgette and Lilly came into GAP about a year ago when their elderly trainer died. Bridgette is nearly 11 and Lilly is nearly 10 and nobody wanted to give these senior girls a home especially as they had to stay together. Then Stu came along and opened his heart and home to the girls and they joined him and his 12 year old Akita (Kuma) on New Year’s Day. And 2 months ago Go Go came to live with them all too. Go Go will be 8 in August and nobody wanted him either! It makes me laugh to remember when I first got Beryl. She was 3 1/2 and hmm, I thought that was a bit old, lol. Now she will be 7 in October and nobody better tell her she’s almost a senior dog!!
Anyway, here are some photos of our time at Scotts Ferry showing how there’s plenty of life in the old dogs yet!!
