At da Beach!

We went to the beach this morning!  We were the only ones there and I was King of the Beach ... not that it would be any different with other dogs.

The water was still a little chilly, but not cold enough to keep me out! Even Mum went in to her knees (mostly just to retrieve my ball - she's so well trained).

Running in the sand is always a good work out, and I always need a good nap when we get home.

The water was extra high today because of the spring run off. This lake is also fed by Coquitlam lake where our drinking water comes from. BC Hydro has a turbine connecting the two lakes that helps make our electricity. BC Hydro owns all the land around this lake, but they made a park that everyone can use. And they made this dog beach in the park!

This whole big area is fenced off so doggies and there people can enjoy the beach together with no complaints from the no-dog people. (Side note - never trust a person who doesn't like dogs! Especially at the beach!)

As pretty as these pictures are it is even nicer on a clear day when you can see the snow capped mountains. We are so lucky to be able to come here!


  1. I wish we had a beach near where I live. Or even just a dog park.

  2. Those are some great early morning pictures. Looks like fun was had by everyone!

  7. Oh man, oh man, oh man...that is beautiousness personified. I just love your lake and imagine all to yourself AND dogs only...woo hoo...I can hear myself echoing around the lake now....SO pls show us pics when you get a chance of the clear day with the mountain tops gleaming....Cheers from the foggy east coat!
