This weekend we took Mocha down to Miami Beach ... it was her first encounter with the beach & ocean. Now, my little lady loves the water ... she has had the pleasure of swimming in the river, a lake, and even her own swimming pool. The ocean, therefor, was an easy sell. We just had to say "water" and she wanted to jump in. The sand on the other hand, was a little bit of a nuisance at first; it felt funny between her paws, I imagine. After a few minutes though, she decided the sand between her toes wasn't so much to care about and we all enjoyed a nice stroll long the beach as the sun set into night.
