Our trip to Outer Banks Beaches!

We took a 2 hour nice drive down south to the beaches in NC called the Outer Banks and stayed a couple of days down there in a house in Southern Shores. We love to go there as they really like dogs there and allow them on most beaches. It is a great place to vacation with your dogs, Mom and Dad have been going there with their dogs for over 35 years. Sometimes we take our Motorhome down there out to the campground on Hatteras Island.

Below here we are with our little sunhats on sitting under the umbrella with our Daddy, grandniece Kendall and Mommy's sister on the beach in Kitty Hawk.
We saw a couple of other dogs there on the beach and greeted them with a big "woof woof"! Phooey after awhile Mom and Dad spoiled all our fun and and made us stop.

This is Mommy with Layla and Tizzy at the waters edge..... we ran in when those waves chased us but a couple of ones got our bellies all wet. weeeeeeeeeee that's cold!

Okay Mom that is enough fun, that is a big wave and we are out of here. Back to sitting in the shade and checking out all the other cool dogs on the beach. I saw a cute little chihuahua, You think it could be Chloe?

Okay this is better we like the shade much better even though we have new summer cuts that keep us cooler in the heat, it can get real hot here in the south with all that fur. Plus Mom said the sand falls out easier.

Mom has been trying out her new camera she got for her birthday before we left and trying to figure out how to use all the adjustments on it. She still hasn't figured out the video part yet.

Layla sticking close to her Daddy. She sure is a Daddy's girl.

Hey Kendall you going to keep all that watermelon for yourself? We love watermelon too ya know. hehe we love Kendall when she drops food and we clean up big time! I don't know what that is all about but sometimes she will feed us all her food. What a girl!

Well we did our best begging with sad puppy eyes and finally scored some watermelon. Boy we are good!

Hey they didn't tell us they went to eat at an all you can eat seafood buffet there!
Where was the doggy bag we didn't get a sniff!

Dad is eating snow crab legs and shrimp, hey we like that too. Boy even Kendall ate some crab legs and seafood.
Our sister Sassy who is at the rainbow bridge would not eat shrimp they gave her, instead she would drop it and roll in it, guess she liked the smell better than the taste. You can bet we don't turn down much. Mommy and Daddy usually save us a bite off their plates. Not this time!

Here we watched the boats coming back in from the back porch and saw this Jack Russell on the boat. He sure looks like he is having fun.
A couple of years ago Mommy's sister's golden retriever Tigger jumped off the boat right into the canal with his Mom still holding his leash. Good thing he did not weigh a 100 lbs like he does now or they would have had a hard time lifting him out of the water.

So after Mom unpacked, put away and washed everything, including a quick bath for us doggies and her she said she needed another vacation but this time at home! We were happy to be back home too.

Happy 5th Birthday Katy Rose!

Today is Katy Rose's 5th Birthday. We girls knew exactly what was going to happen when Mom started putting the party together so we ran and got in our seats. We have done this many times before, who says dogs don't remember!

This is Katy Rose, the Birthday girl waiting so patiently. Do I look pitiful enough?

Is that food I see Layla says?
Oh boy chicken nuggets, beef, and hard boiled eggs, and for dessert homemade apricot ice cream, that is our favorite treat, we love ice cream.

Hurry Mom we are hungry and can only wait so long! I am pretty sure this is torture but as long as we get food, I guess we will wear these silly hats for Mom!

Yeah!! Let the eating begin!!

Tizzy says yum this is some good stuff!

Layla says this is sooooo good!

Katy and Tizzy say Boy oh boy we sure love ice cream. Hey Katy want me to clean your face for you?

Okay time to clean those faces on the lounger, yep that feels just right!

We are going to the Beach!

Mom has been busy celebrating four family birthdays and trying to get us shaved down for our summer cuts and packing for a trip to the beaches in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. They are very dog friendly there and allow dogs on the beaches but it has been awhile since we have been there. We love walking on the beach where our noses go into high sniffing smelling all the neat smells. When Ginger their first dog would go there she loved to swim in the ocean with them and chase the hermit crabs and birds. We chase after the birds after all we are bird dogs but we run from the waves.

Mom's favortie place to shop is at The Outer Barks! They have lots of neat dog things.

Here are some older pictures of us on the beach. Mom got a new camera for her birthday as soon as she figures out how to use it she will be trying it out on our trip.

Below is Molly on the beach in Duck, NC

Layla and Tizzy on the beach with their cousins the Dachshunds Blackie and Mindy.

We love this billboard coming out to the Outer Banks showing cockers like us having fun on the beach.

Come on Mom open up those Sardines!

A couple of weeks ago our Mom bought us some sardines to try for a special treat. She read it would be very healthy for us but so far we have not even had a sniff of it.

See Mom doesn't like fish, doesn't eat fish and she doesn't like the smell of fish!!

However she does love us so today was a big step when she took the sardines out of the pantry and put it on the kitchen counter.

She has been looking at it and planning how she is going to feed these stinky fish to us!

Wohoo we can't wait!! We'll eat anything!
