Corgi puppy Friday! (Hey, Caleb’s under a year here! It counts!) 

Dusty went and tucked himself into bed  while I was in the middle of washing sheets. 
… I left the sheets off until he got up. ;) Awwww.

Corgis, double coat, beach, hotspots! How do you keep your crew from getting them? Every time Kipper went into the ocean I'd rinse him with fresh water and dry him off. But sand would stay inside his undercoat no matter what I did. How do you do it?

Oh man… surprisingly, I’ve not really had a problem with hotspots and beaches. The Cardis seem to not get wet to the skin and most of the mud and the dirt just knocks off the moment we walk back up the beach with the way they’re coated up. 

I can say that yep - you’ve done exactly what I would do - use fresh water, and if you have a dog that’s super sensitive to staying wet on the undercoat, perhaps a forced-air drier, even a handheld one to just blow open that coat and keep the air circulating to the skin until totally dry. 

Poor Kipper! :( Those hurt, owch. I will say Vet’s Best Hot Spot spray can also be used as an after beach rinse maybe? That might help. Owch! :( 

Simon!!! *1000 skritches*

Simon> Yessss, now do 1000 more. <3  Thank you! 

What beach did you go to on your last picture?

That would be at Point no Point! :D Tide was really out that day. I go to Eglon beach as well too - that’s a GREAT dog beach. <3 

I love all your dogs so much and get such joy from your beautiful pictures. I have to say though that I think Caleb might have the sweetest face I have ever seen!!

Ssshhhh… but, I think so too. He’s pretty much like his pictures say he is, a snuggly cuddler without a mean bone in his body. <3 Sweetest softest eyes, awwww. 

Where in the world did you get that Transformers Collar!? It's amazing!

*laughs* Thank you!!! I love that one. <3  Those are custom collars from  Ella’s Lead and the tags are custom tags from Aggies Anvil. Simon wears the Autobot one and Caleb the Decepticon. ;) (I’m a ‘Con girl at heart, I admit it. XD) I have a matching set of leather bracelets/cuffs for me from them, so I switch out depending on the dog I’m with. Yep, I’m a Transformers geek. <3 

I also have a Green Lantern Collar for Simon from them and a custom Quicksilver/ Avengers Collar for Caleb.

Tess, Ginger, and Caleb’s trip to the beach yesterday. We try to rotate out who gets to go in by how hard they tussle and the styles they like to play in… these three all are very mellow and love the chase game.

Beach run today before it got too hot.
