He Came and the Beach

Well we have a confession to make....You are not going to believe this......after all of our signs,disguises and conferences to get rid of the trainer kid he finally came back...and we REALLY like him!! Well, we also did like everyone said which was to do everything he said so he would leave...but he had LOTS OF GOOD TREATS!!! so it was really easy to do what he wanted.We had another conference and decided we could do this as long as we get those yummy treats.....We will keep you posted...... Today was a cold,windy almost winter New England day and PL1+2 said Hey! Why don't we go to the beach??Well you don't have to twist our paws!! So off we went...........to...Revere Beach which was the first public beach in the country!!!!and not very far from us at all.....





You can see the clouds...........


And the surf was getting strong.........and the wind started to blow........Here is a little movie for those of you who don't live near the ocean.......




video

I was a little embarrassed by PL2's outfit..I mean what is on her ears??Oh...ear muffs.....




I have to tell you..there is SERIOUS stuff to smell here............


Look at what they have here?????!!!!!!!!


I told PL1 to lift me up so I could get a closer look..IT IS!!! Tin Tin,Milou.....US!!!!!We love this beach.....








Not only are there serious smells here but you can get in some SERIOUS digging as well and you can dig for HOURS!!!!!!!!!





video


Archie was trying really really hard to look across the water to see if he could see Jackson,Eric,Molly and Taffy or Blue...........




He thought he heard Jax destuffing a toy but he couldn't really be too sure.......


Then we had to get back and investigate........






Can you see the razor clam??The long SHARP shell??There were alot of them today...




And PL1 found this teeny weeny snail shell........





Checking out more stuff.............







Archie is OBSESSED WITH THESE........His arch enemy #2(next to geese)........


and chased quite a few of them.........


But that wasn't it!!!! WE WENT HERE!! THE BEST PIZZA EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!










AND WE GOT THIS!!! well we all got this not just us........





Archie made sure that he watched them while they ate so they wouldn't forget us.......








AND WE GOT SOME!!(we were thinkg of Maggie and Mitch)What a great day.....HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!!!!!
LOVE A+A

Hey A+A. Good that you decided to like the dude. Hey, it makes the PL's happy, trainer dude happy and y'all get treats. Win,win we say!!
That sky sure looked like a cold sky. Mom remembers the Massachusetts sky from when she lived there as a puppy. We love the beach, but being cold at the beach just seems wrong!! Bet those were GREAT smells cold or not.
Happy Thanksgiving.
Hugs
Sunny&Scooter

Eric said...

That looks the bestest day twinny and Step. Only betterer if Archie had dug his way to us :( If we dug too at the same time we could meet half way under the pond?

Mmm treats from the trainer, remember them well, chunks of hot dog,liver sausage,cheese,black pudding...waaaaaaaa !!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and the Pl's have a pawfect day! Wiry wags, Eric x x x

Niamh said...

I'm glad you two had a better time training this week. Treats are always good!

What a day at the beach - all those amazing smells and holes to dig. Sure looks like fun to me.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving,

Your friend,
Niamh

Hero said...

What an exciting day the two of you had! I haven't been to the beacn in a while even though I live on an island. I love to dig in the sand and chase the waves. I hope you and your family have a happy thanksgiving!

Ok, I guess we were wrong about being stubborn. It's those treats that get us every time. But it's probably for the best.

Mom wants to know if the trainer kid is teaching you how not to bark if you could give her a quick lesson because she is very concerned that we will get thrown out of any moptel we stay in when we start barking in the middle of the night at the elevator or the AC or a slamming door...


Happy Thanksgiving!!! That day at the beach was something to be really thankful for!!!

Lacy said...

Joe Stains said...

That is like a PERFECT day, wow. I am glad you didn't go in that water becaues water is very scary. Still not sure about taking treats from that trainer dude...

Dewey Dewster said...

Koobuss said...

What a great day! I think going to the beach is a wonderful idea on a cold day. You have the whole place to yourself!

I loved the videos. The waves and the digging. Such fun!! I love the beach...

And that pizza looks absolutely scrumptious! I love pizza.

Pizza and the beach together!! It doesn't get any better than this, guys!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Petey said...

Oh boy, you got to my favoritest place ever - the beach! Even though we live on an island, it would take us awhile to get to a real beach. You two looked like you had an absolute blast.

Happy Turkey Day! Hope you get lots of goodies to eat (without having to do any training tricks!)

Your pal,

Petey

Rudy said...

Hey you guys,

I never get a break from any trainer dude -- Mom is our trainer and she never lets up! She gives yummy treats and just calls it fun.. why even when she was a teenager she taught her first dog to go get the newspaper for some real bacon in the morning. Guess what -- the dog stole all the neighbors' papers one day, piled them up by the back door, and Mom's Mom had to call everyone and return their newspapers! What a laugh...

I could do a LOT for some pizza though!

Love
Rudy

Scottie the 'cutie' said...

That's so cool that you liked the trainer! I'm sure he has loads of treats in store for you next time he comes around...hehe!

The beach and pizza sounds like the best combination! THe pizza looks YUMMY and the beach SUPER awesome! And there's also the degradable poop baggie thing too....how cool was that? We don't get those things here...=(

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Hope you have a great day!

Scottie

Poopsie Blue said...

Glad all was well with the trainer after all.

Going to the beach is always great fun even in the Winter.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Stanley said...

Hey, kids!

I have been reading your more recent posts to catch up on all of your exploits, and I was APPALLED to see that you have some Cesar Milan wannabe visiting your house...

Then I read this post, and I'm going to back down from what I was going to say to PL1+2. If YOU guys are saying it's okay, then I'm okay with it. I always thought of training as barking and treat-getting class, so maybe that will be your experience too.

Stella & I want you to know that we have missed your fuzz faces SO STINKIN' MUCH, and that our girl is to blame for our lack of visits to your very eventful blog! We finally kicked our girl in the booty and got her jump-started this week, so maybe we'll be more regular in our visits.

We have decided that we're going to have to come visit you in Boston whenever we get around to making our cross country drive to NYC. You have beaches, arboretums, and famous pizza?! We're in.

Thanks for all of the photos of you guys worn out after your trainer's visit. They were hil-Aire-ious!

Goober love & smooches,
Stanley

Maggie and Mitch said...

OMG, you guys got PIZZA!!!!!!! We are so happy for you and you got to go to the beach too! What a fabulous day you had! We wish we could have joined you!
Have a happy Thanksgiving. We hope you get a spoonful of pumpkin pie!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Caz and Ludo the cool dude said...

Looks a little cold but i bet you had fun on the beach finding all those shells. Then to round it off with pizza sounds like heaven.
glad you had a great day.

ludo the cool dude.

Sophie Brador said...

oh man, A & A, I would have given anything to be there. I would have run into that water full speed ahead and had myself a nice cold swim. Then I would have gotten out of the water and rolled on that beach. Then I would have jumped in the car and put sand all over the place. Yup. It would have been great.

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Happy Thanksgiving to my adorable friends.
I'm blessed to have friends like you and I'm so thankful for that.
Cheers!

Mango said...

A&A -
Your PL looks kind of goofy, but at least she is warm! That mud looks good. Did you try out the theraputic mud bath?

Listen, I know its late notice, but can you two come over this weekend? Lacie is coming and I really don't want to be alone with her. We have a whole day planned in Boston.

Slobbers,
Mango

Patience-please said...

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

It looks like you had a great day! Smelling all those heavenly smells on the beach and then topping it off with PIZZA! What pup could ask for more? Our mom has some of those weird ear things too! Fortunately, she only wears them when it's REALLY cold and windy! We hope you had a pawsome Thanksgiving!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches

BrandytheGreat said...

Wow, that place sure looks VERy interesting, we could spend a week there!
PS/Sorry for the sudden disappearance!

Molly and Taffy said...

We were very pleased you had an OK time with the trainer chappie.

Just inspect his pockets every time he enters your house....no treats = no cooperation.

We wished we had known you were listening out for us we would have barked even louder. Perhaps next time????

the 4 Bs said...

hi A&A, that is a pawsome beach that you got to visit. is that where Paul Revere got to ride on his horse? we would love to sniff around that beach.

it sounds like things are okay with that trainer dude kid. as long as he is giving you treats, that's the most important thing. you're not going to let him brain wash you though, are you?

woofs.!

Amber-Mae said...

Wow! Nice beach! Oh my, just look at that mouth-watering pizza!!! Did you get a slice each or something??? Happy Thanksgiving!

Mango said...

Oh A&A! I hope I didn't do a bloggy faux pas. Lacie said you guys were coming to the estate for the slumber party so I sent Dexter to pick you up.

Slobbers,
Mango

Faya said...

Oh you are so lucky to be near the ocean. Is the water realy salty ? I cannot imagine this....
And Pizza.....if this trainer wasn't here maybe I could come and stay with you.
Kisses, Faya

Bae Bae said...

That sure looks like a pawsome trip. Digging in the beach is fun...

Stanislaw said...

That day sounds awesome! And feasting is the perfect way to end a fun afternoon. I've never dug in anything before but I'm thinking about taking a page from your book and giving it a shot. These webbed paws are good for more than just swimming!

Kess And Her Mama said...

Superb beach outing followed by pizza. What more could 2 dogs ask for?

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Agatha...come to our bloggie and see pix I snapped of ya from my so called date with Mango...

I never KNEW you had such a coffee addiction!

Love and kissies...Laciegirl

Toffee said...

What a great day at the beach? Did you make some sand castles too? Glad that you didn't cut yourself with the razor clams.

ARe you asking Hanukkah Harry for anything this year??

How is your mom's ankle?

Lenny said...

It's hard to recognize PL2 all bundled up like that!
I heard there is a Tin Tin movie coming out next year. Have you heard anything about that?

Your friend, Lenny
