It’s a beautiful day in Pensacola, Florida so we decided to take the dogs to a dog beach. Or at least a section of the beach that was designated for dogs.
We found what we were looking for, but it wasn’t the optimal place for dogs. It was a very small section of the beach that was for dogs. There were several people and dogs in the small space. Unfortunately, the meaning of dog beach was different for several of the visitors. About half of the people were there playing with their dogs. Letting them run in the sand and water, etc. Cool.
But, there were an equal number of people that took ‘dog beach’ to mean that it was for people, but you could bring a dog along and make them lay by you in the sand on a leash. I don’t know about you, but I haven’t found many younger dogs that are into getting a tan. Most want to run. As they should.
So, the dynamic at the dog beach seemed to be playing dogs that were driving the tied up dogs nuts and annoying the owners of said tied up dogs. Oh well, we’ll try again on another day. A sunny Sunday afternoon was probably not the best time to try out the dog beach. It may be a better option during the week.
