Classes and Easter at the Beach

First off, I am sick. It started last Wednesday with a sore throat and has been slowly building speed. So - even though both boys had awesome classes this week I am not going to post about them! Just not enough energy.

Yesterday John, the boyz, and I went up to my mum's for Easter. We then headed up to Plum Island for a wonderful beach jaunt followed by fried seafood at Woodman's (well known regional place to get classic NE fried seafood!). We did this one other Easter and it is by far my favorite way to spend the holiday. I think weather permitting this is how we should always spend Easter!

Our timing was impeccable. When we got to the beach the sun was shining, no jackets needed, and there were VERY few people about. The pups got to run around willy-nilly. I have barely any photos of Bug because he did not stop moving!! His favorite part was having the opportunity to run with 3 Border Collies. He is such a silly boy! We walked for about an hour and a half before we called it quits. The sun was starting to go behind some clouds and there were more people and dogs about.

I was really, really pleased with how good the dogs were.

I cannot believe the difference in Ike. I am 100% convinced it is because Wrentham is less stressful/stimulating than Canton. In Canton Ike left the house and was immediately assaulted by people, noises, dogs, children (Yes, I know children are people, too), etc. In Wrentham when we walk the majority of the time we see NO ONE!! As a result his threshold for creepy people has improved dramatically!

Thanks, Kathy!

Nancy, I think it would be the public beach on Plum Island? Dogs are allowed until May 15th. We go every year at last once before it's available only to the humans.

Great photos! They look like they're having a lot of fun! That is so cool that Ike is doing that much better around people.

I hope you feel better soon.
