Another Amigo


Faithful followers of the blog will remember the many fun-filled days Dylan, Dee Dee, and their best buddy, Gracie, spent at the beach in the Bahamas. Mom loved those times so well, she chose the above picture for her iPad background. If you've missed them or just want to put a smile on your face, check out the entries from 2015 and 2016:

Red Head has been "stuck" in Southport while Dad works on some below deck issues. It hasn't been the best time for the crew. Mom rented a car a few times so Dylan, Dee Dee, and Dora could visit a mediocre dog park nearby. And the crew went on daily walks around Southport. Not bad but not great.

Then Dad heard from Gracie's people. They were nearby in Holden Beach visiting their beach house with Gracie. Plans were quickly made for a visit including a romp on the beach.


It was just like old times, with the addition of another amigo.


How did the newest addition do? Just fine.


This was Dora's first exposure to the ocean and to ocean waves. She handled it with the typical aplomb of a Red Head crew member.


It was certainly a day Dora will not soon forget.


The day was bittersweet, though. While the crew enjoyed yet another ocean romp with Gracie, they won't be seeing her in the Bahamas this winter. Gracie and her people sold their DeFever, Carolina, last year.


It was great to see you, Gracie!

What a great visit! Gracie was so tired she slept for days. Or maybe it was the dreams, the memories of chasing the bumper with her friends Dylan, Dee Dee and now Dora. It seemed like old times, not only the dogs, but their parents reminisced "beach days" in the Bahamas. A fun visit for sure.

Awesome! Definitely the things great dog dreams are made of.

Let me try again: Wonderful to see the three amigos/as together again...now +1.. Our Josie has fond memories of frolicking in the surf with this crew. Hard to keep up with them...but what fun trying!
