My boy sniffed anything on the beach that appeared to bear any possibility of sustenance. It was apparent that out of all the dogs on the beach, mine was the dog from the city! It was his efforts to paw and get to move, a jelly-fish that had me most afraid! I also wondered what the side effects of lapping salt water. It was a dream to see his streamlined form zipping full throttle the length of the beach and then back again. Unfortunately, his object obsession continues to hold and he hoped that I might play the throw-the-stick game and I refused.
