Maisies weekend

Maisie spent the weekend with her daddy Geoff at the Oregon coast, daddy Lars wanted a quiet weekend at home. She is always nervous about the waves at first but then finds them very interesting.
This was also her first "off leash" experience, hiding in the beach grass is apparently quite fun, and then pouncing on your daddy.

Digging is also a favorite Maisie thing, and what's more fun than digging in sand.


The weather wasn't exactly great, but there were sun breaks.


I told you she likes to dig.



and she did make peace with the waves.





but still really likes hanging out in the beach grass.

Die arme Ollie hat natürlich zu Hause bleiben müssen. Das hat man nun davon ein Schwein zu sein.

Lars said...

@ Günter, die arme Ollie hat aber ihre daddy Lars noch bei sie.

@ Basti, weil die Hunde sind und es macht sie Spass.

Jetzt weiß ich auch warum mich manche Leute Blöder Hund nennen....ich buddel auch gern im Sand;-)

Lars said...

Also Totti, komm zu Oregon, Du und Maisie können zusammen so viel in die Sand buddeln wie ihr möchtet, Mädels finden auch ein Mann mit Hund sehr attraktiv ;)

Lars,
mal so unter uns..
Hier in Köln gibt es nicht nur tolle Männer, sondern auch die schönsten Frauen der Welt. Es soll welche geben die mich auch ohne Hund mögen.
Aber sag es nicht weiter;-)

My lips are sealed Totti.

it always gets me when i see how easy other people can drive to the seaside i wish i´d live somewhat closer to any ocean ... and what about guys with cats? Not attractive?

Lars said...

@ Zing, It is nice to have the coast only an hour and a quarter away. Portland is great that way, the same distance in the opposite direction takes you to the ski resort on Mount Hood, or if you go north to the vocano mount St. Helens.

Guys with cats are also attractive, cats just aren't as much fun at the beach ;P

Who do I envy more? You two for living in such a nice place or Maisie for having been taken to the beach? I just can't make up my mind. :-)

Lars said...

Definitely Maisie! She's one lucky pup.

That dog really is a cutie pie :) !

Lars said...

Thanks Judy, she's also a real character.

Pathologe said...

That's a really nice sheperd mix. What else was involved? Or is it one of the brand new "globalised" dogs?

Nice pictures anyway. At least there's a sandy beach to walk on. Nothing like that over here, but I am in the capital anyway.

(Maybe you should enter your website next time you're commenting at Jekylla. This blog is worth it.)

Lars said...

Pathaloge, as near as I can guess she has Australian cattle dog and red heeler in her. There are probably more breeds involved though. She was a puppy rescued from the warm springs reservation and could be just about anything.

I'll stop bt Jekys and see what's up. Thanks.
