sand in my toes

hello every bloggie!

I received many comments about my visit to the cape.. thank goodness I took more pictures.  I guess Clive the Autistic Assistant Dog's humans will be heading to Boston and the Cape this weekend.   And Phantom and Thunder's mom is from this area.. reliving some fond memories from the photos.  Well, here you go! My blog photographer took many more to share.

First off ! The most important thing to do is make paw stamps.  Look at mine!  I'm not allowed on the beach but across from it was sand dunes!  I LOVE IT! I stamped all over and wrote my name!  Yeah you know it! I was here!

Everywhere I looked ! Sand crab holes!  I pounced around, hopping in the air like a gazelle! Trying to catch one. Look at my focus- determination ! I know I can catch one.  Anyone out there ever catch a sand crab? Do tell. 
I never hunted one before so not sure if my gazelle leap is the appropriate technique.  My blog photographer doesn't seem to think so.... 
In the words of Mango.. or is it Kool Aid Man-  anyways.. Ohhh Yeahhh! 
I'm loving this ocean life! I wish I could go on the beach! Listen to the ocean  Click the mic to hear it! Wind in my long fur... ahem.. time for a haircut.  I'm I'm .. king .. I'm not gonna say that corny line.  
I started singing " Catch a wave and you're sitting on top of the world!"  
And then we drove along part of the race course which is beautiful.   In the distance and up close the Nobska lighthouse and beach!

I'm still looking to jump in.... someday.. after summer beach rules end,  I will. 
A dog has got to have dreams!


  1. Love it. This is the second blog I come across that is written from a dog's point of view. Mr. Puppydog is beautiful as are your pictures.

    Please drop by and read my latest post (I never ask to do this but you'll soon see why) which deals with the barbaric practice of using dogs as shark bait. I have a link to a petition which you can sign.


  2. Hi Norwood! What a great time at the beach! Those pictures are beautiful! Beach is my dream!

  3. More pawesome pictures! Thanks for sharing them!
    Kisses and hugs

  4. My humans used to live on the Cape. They said the doggies can go swimming late-- after the life guards leave. The beach looks great.


  5. I love your paw stamps, you are an artist! I never caught one of those things in the hole, but I don't think I want to either.

    licks and sniffs, SAsha

  6. That looks like a fun place to play. Our mum says she recognizes the lighthouse from a packet of chips...whatever that means...

  7. Your mom should join the coast guard and then you could live in a light house and protect the ocean and eat sand crabs all day. That would be great.

    I don't know about swimming in the ocean. That is one big pool.


  8. Your Mom is going to have such a beautiful run there Norwood. I LOVE these photos & love the sound of the waves! Too bad you couldn't go on the's not fair when they put up signs like that. The beach & the ocean should belong to everybody, not just the home owners.
    Have a GREAT day!
    your pal,

  9. Hi sure have a nice Mom to take you to such cool places. Hope you can catch one of those sand crabs next time, but don't let him bite you on the nose!
    your pal,

  10. Such a relaxing sound, the sound of the ocean!!! Thanks for sharing that. We have not only never caught a sand crab, we have never even been to a beach. Mom has cousins that live in West Dennis and one of these summmers we will have a big family reunion. Not sure us pups will get to go unless somehow we move closer to the coast:(

    Beautiful pics to share. Thanks.

  14. Looks like a great beach the sound brings it to life.

    This will wipe THAT polka out of your head:


  17. "The scientific institutions"? Any ones in particular? Trouble is a mad scientist, does that count?
