Doggie Play Date

Met up with my friend Lynn and we took the dogs to the beach. They had a ball swimming and running around playing with each other. We own true water loving German Shepherds. The first thing they do as soon as we let them out of the car is run straight into the water. Of course being dogs they love to share the joy with their owners so they run out of the water and get as close to you as they can before they shake the excess water off. Soon we are almost as wet as they are. They also start chase and wrestle games that kick up wet sand all over us. Lynn and I truly get to enjoy the beach experience with our dogs. We had called another friend with a German Shepherd dog about meeting at her house so after the beach we drove over there.

Debbie has a huge fenced back yard and her female German Shepherd Cheyenne is a great hostess when her dog buddies come to play. After greeting everyone at the fence to let them know it is her yard she very graciously lets the boys come in and play.

Hostess Cheyenne

Three males can be a little annoying but Cheyenne takes it all in stride. Soon they are chasing each other around the yard playing catch me if you can.

Hey we are going this way?
While the dogs are having fun Debbie, Lynn and I take the time to catch up on anything and everything. It is great to have the time to just sit and relax with good friends, often that is overlooked as our days get busy.

All too soon the dogs were tired and the day was getting late so we reluctantly said our good byes. With promises of doing it again soon Lynn and I climbed into the car with our dogs, waved bye to Cheyenne and Debbie and took our happy, exhausted dogs home.

It was a great day!!
