Sunday we went to New Brighton beach with friends. At Fort Perch Rock there was an event, so we weren't able to visit it.
We walked on Marine Promenade for a short while and after that we played with Festus in the water.
Festus plays very nice in the water. He jumps on the ball to sink it and goes in to retrieve it. It's a pleasure to stay on the sand and just watch him play.
Other dogs enter smoothly in the water, but Festus is not like other dogs. He jumps with a big splash and swims as fast as he can (with his tail up) to get the ball. I saw two persons recording him.
Festus watches carefully the guys that were in the water. They had no ball, so he was afraid they would go after his. It was so funny. He was trying to race them to the ball because he imagined people would go into the water to get his amazing toy.
As usual, he swims with his tail up. He thinks it's better to be proud, even if only the crabs see his tail up.
A short stroll after play, to dry Festus before getting in the car. It was very hot outside and his fur was dry in 15-20 minutes.
I was cleaning his nose, because it was full of sand. I like the look on the woman's face. I see it often when I'm holding Festus
