Greyhound Heaven + Saturday Blog Hop

Yes, it's winter here:-)
It was way too gorgeous a day here to just go to the park with the kids so Fatima and I decided to take them all down to the forest/sand dunes/beach where I took my two last Tuesday.  And didn't they all LOVE it:-)  I took 145 photos but don't worry, I'm not going to show you them all, lol.
Greyhounds racing!

Bart having a rest in the shade!
He nearly exhausted himself before we even got to the beach.  Common sense prevailed and he decided to pace himself and managed to make it there and back without us having to carry him, thank goodness!

Beryl the Dingo:-)
Frankie's Dingo impersonation:-)
Look at all that sand!
The beautiful Beryl
Is it Bart or Lucy ..... it's Bart!
Beryl's got her eye on Bart:-)
Bart's got his eye on Frankie!
Which way?
Ok, this way.

Hmm, Louie thinks there must be a rabbit somewhere?

What's over this sand dune?

And last but certainly not least,
Louie, looking his regal best.
I'm sure the kids all agree that it was a fabulous afternoon.  I know Fatima and I had a ball seeing them enjoy themselves so much.

It may look deserted but we spent quite a bit of time dodging cars driving too fast on the beach and more cars, motorbikes and dogs in the sand dunes but the kids all behaved impeccably.

And now, if you're still here, it's time for the Saturday Blog Hop again.  You know the drill, go to Life With Dogs and follow the instructions.  Enjoy ....

Ah cars speeding on the beach! We went on a holiday to Esperance and walked the beach with Bender every day, all day, and the people in their 4x4s gave us disdainful looks! what's wrong with walking?

WHAT FUN! That silhouette of Bart is awesome. Reminds me of the dunes we run up in Michigan. Beautiful dogs!

I just drool with envy when I see all the pictures of the beautiful places you get to go with the dogs! Those shots are all gorgeous! You could make your own calendar with all the great pictures you get.

I thought about you when we heard about the earthquake. I'm glad you all seem to be alright!

Greyhounds CAN Sit said...

Thanks Houndstooth. The earthquake was in the South Island, we're in the North Island. We had a little one a couple of weeks ago. All the greyhound people and their dogs down there seem to have come through unscathed:-)

Your greyhound heaven looks far more appealing than mine :). Kassa says to heck with the deer, He wants to run in New Zealand!
