We love the beach!

It's a gorgeous day here today (which is nice after seemingly endless days of rain) so we went out to a beach on the North Shore, just a 15 minute drive from our house The beach is gorgeous and all off leash and also has a great man made walk thing that goes round the bottom of some cliffs to link up two beaches.

There was a bird (a shag I think) that was swimming around not far from shore and ducking under, popping up in random spots. Pepper spotted him before I did and was off swimming after him (I thought she would swim out to sea and never come back!)


  1. North Shore beaches are so lovely :) That one didn't look to busy as well, which is nice! They can sometimes get very busy! Was that Mairangi Bay or Rothesay Bay? You should let us know next time you go, we could come meet you, we live very close :)

    Laura's family pet dog when she was younger was a border collie/kelpie cross, and watching pepper at the beach with the ball and the birds reminded her of Bess(Family Dog) who's favourite thing is to also chase ball and chanse seagulls at the beach! Bess is now 14yrs old and not quite fast enough to get any where near them anymore :p

    Licks and lots of slobber,

  2. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog. It is nice to meet you and look forward to learning more about you.

    Those are some good questions about the AKC. I am not really sure why they waited so long to welcome mixed breeds into their agility program. I believe that mixed breeds can now do obedience as well, but we don't do that because Sagira gets bored with Obedience. :)

  3. What a beautiful beach!! Pepper is so brave to swim way out in the water after that bird! I would never try that!
