There is no happy like dog happy. Give the dude off leash time on the beach and life is good. Throw a ball into the mix, or a stick or a piece of kelp and sheesh, he has it made. We love him so much. This little guy is all grown up now. 10 months old and his puppy days behind him. He's just the best thing. Kinda like having a kid, except it goes much faster and you can chuck them out on the deck if they go all crazy. Best thing!
