Watching my dog pals romp at Coronado Dog Beach

Watching my dog pals romp at Coronado Dog Beach.

I woke up this morning to a great surprise. They gave me breakfast. Again! That was just the best. But, get this, there was another surprise in store for this lucky dog. They took me to the best place in the entire world. They took me to Coronado Dog Beach!

 

If you have never been to a dog beach, jump in the back seat and get there as soon as you can. Imagine hundreds of dogs jumping and playing on the beach with each other and their owners. Even better than that: there are no leashes to be found. The dog laughter fills the salty air; but you can’t hear if for the crashing of the waves or the occasional roar of the Navy jets as they land nearby. Everyone seems to get along really well. Be aware, they don’t allow excessive barking by dogs or their owners.

 

My owners had yet another surprise for me: they brought my favorite ball! This was just too much, even for me. I enjoyed sharing my ball with other dogs. I enjoyed borrowing balls from other dogs. I got to play fetch in the waves and even tried body surfing. The water was the best. The beach was the best. My owners are simply the best!

 

But, afterward we went for a bath.

On the Road

On the Road

I’m a dog on the go. I just love going places, especially in The Tall One’s truck. My favorite place to be is in the back seat with my nose near his lap. You never know when he might need some help driving.

 

I don’t mind where we go. I do love going to the dog parks or, of course, the dog beach. But, it’s also fun to go on errands with my owners. My favorite errand is going to the pet food store. I get to go inside and sniff all the toys and snacks. I love that place.

 

Of course, my second favorite place to be while driving is with my nose out the window as my ears flap in the wind. It’s a great life! And, it’s great to spend part of your life going someplace in the truck.

I love a good vacation. Sometimes, when the daily grind gets to me (or they go away themselves), my owners will take me to Alpine Dog Ranch for a little rest and relaxation.

I live a pretty active life; so getting away and taking care of myself is extremely important. Of course, being such a popular model, the camera is never too far away (jeez!). It seems, these shots of me were taken during my last stay at The Ranch. Dang the paparazzi.

They just installed a 30 foot waterfall into a natural swimming pool. It will be just the diversion I need until my R & R is complete. Ahh, it’s a rough life . . . but this is the best place for a much deserved vacation.

 

The Best Place for a Nap? July 27, 2008

The Cat finds the best places to nap.

This is my brother, The Cat. His name is Rajah. We have a lot of fun together . . . when he is awake! He finds the strangest places to sleep. And, he sleeps all the time. This is him on the jacuzzi cover in a bed full of bouganvilla leaves. Does this look comfortable to you? I much prefer napping in my owners’ bed. But that only happens when I’m clean. Usually.

I have the two best cousins in the world. Willy and Pauly are also my best friends. We are so lucky. We get to go to the park and play ball with each other. Sometimes, on an extremely lucky day, we will go to the beach together. We have a lot of fun whenever we meet.

Willy will always run all the way across the park to meet me whenever I come to play with them. He gives me lots of wet dog kisses, which, between you and me, is pretty cool, although, I usually pretend not to care.

Willy used to think my brother, The Cat, was a fun play toy. I taught him how much I love my brother. Now, Willy and The Cat get along just fine.

Willy is a Chinese Crested with lots of moppy white hair. Sometimes, he gets a really funny haircut; but I pretend not to notice.

My cousin Pauly

My cousin Pauly

Pauly is my newest cousin. Pauly loves to play and likes to run with me whenever I fetch the ball.

Pauly never played with other dogs before he joined our family. He has learned to socialize and has quite a few friends at the park, now. Between you and me, I think he has a girl friend, too, although he is too macho to admit it.

Pauly is not too macho to wear a rhinestone-studded collar, though. He is such a trendsetter.

 

The Best Time of the Day: Breakfast July 23, 2008

What a great day! They gave me breakfast this morning! Can you believe it? I get so excited in the mornings that I have to start dancing. I think how great it would be to have a big bowl full of “Tino Poofs” just for me. They must really love me. They even give me a few treats with breakfast just because they feel like it.

Ahh, this is definitely the best time of the day.

Hello everybody. My name is Tino; and I’m told I’m the best dog in the world.

Tino at Dog Beach.

I don’t know about that. But I do know that everyday seems to be the best day of my life. I also know that my family loves me very much and takes very good care of me. They feed me and give me treats. They walk me and let me run in the park with my friends. They pet me and brush me and tell me I’m the best dog in the world. They rescued me and gave me a loving home with a new brother, The Cat. I’m so happy. I think I must be the luckiest dog in the world.
