Default Animals - Wet

Pictures taken Sunday by my husband, who's knowledge of cameras consist of the following things: location of power switch and shutter and how to operate the zoom. He does a great job with a dSLR set to the "P" mode.

Very wet:

The interesting thing is that we had gone to Long Beach to see sand sculptures (there was a competition). I had no idea there was a dog beach there. I took a few pictures of the sculptures and a ton of pictures of the dogs - they were so well behaved and obviously having a great time.

He's actually got a great eye, and it's always fun to see how we look at things differently. He could care less about aperture and so on, he uses my dSLR more like a point and shoot and does very well.

I really wish I had known about this beach when our Golden was still alive, he would have loved it (he always loved going to dog parks and playing with all the other dogs). I'm going to keep this beach in mind for future visits, only this time. I'll go better prepared.

I can smell them from here! Great shots all round of water-loving dogs being "as happy as pigs in mud".

Beautiful expressions.

I agree, Walter, the timing on the last one is perfect. Did you know that Long Beach had a dog park? I wonder if there are any others that I don't know about.

I can't imagine all the work that these owners must have to do to brush the sand out of the Golden's coats. But then, I don't remember all that much trouble when our pup came home from hiking along some stream (he'd always choose the route through the water, often laying down to cool off). The bigger problem was cleaning the mud out of the carpet in the back of the Wrangler.

I didn't know about a dog beach, I have to ask a friend who lives in LB. Great shots, your hubby knows exactly what he's doing!
