Baby Dog On The Beach

We parked the truck right on the beach on Mustang Island and let Savvy run around while Randy and I fished. Baby Dog loves playing in sand so the beach was like a big playground for him. This was the very first time he had seen the ocean, and he went wild splashing in the surf. Even the big waves coming in didn't scare him. We had to wade in up to our chests in order to cast our lines out far enough to catch fish, and Savage wasn't about to let us out of his reach. In the beginning, each time we casted out, he followed us right into the water. Randy and I caught some little fish called "whiting", and I filleted one so Savvy could eat it, which was when we discovered that he refuses to eat fresh saltwater fish. (He loves the stuff that comes in cans, though!)
We were on the coast of Texas during spring break, and the beaches were inundated with college kids, and of course everyone wanted to meet the big blue dog and take his picture. Our friends started calling him a babe magnet because he attracted so much attention everywhere we went. He got to meet a lot of other puppies (thank god for dog-friendly beaches) and even a couple danes! He behaved very well under the circumstances, even though I could tell he was a little stressed with so much going on. Even though he is a pretty sociable dog, and I should be used to answering "dane questions", at the end of the day we were both exhausted...
