The splorin' schnauzies!!

JD - Well! We are quite beside ourselves!

Max - This morning the postman arrived with a parcel for us - how exciting!

JD - Who could it be from? What new and exciting surprise had been sent to us? We couldn't wait to find out....

Max - So we quickly ripped the parcel open (so quickly that FH couldn't get the camera out in time, he he he!) and were delighted to find some wonderful pressies from our good pals, the 'Splorin' Wolfies!

JD - They sent us a book - 'Dog Joy' - which features the handsome Guinness. In fact, Guinness is the cover model!

Max - "Look at the size of Guinness's smile JD!"
JD - "Yeah - he's making us look a bit grumpy Max, he he he!"

Max - "Guinness is a great cover model - shall we have a look a the rest of the book JD?"
JD - "Great thinking Max - could you turn the pages please.....?"

Max - "Sure bro'! Hey, look at this - Guinness has signed the book for us JD!"
JD - "Oh wow, how keewwll is that?!"

The cover model modestly signed the book AND sent us a lock of his hair - how wonderful!

Page 45 is pure Guinness - he likes to laugh at his own jokes! This is such a fantastic photo, Guinness, you are one handsome and happy dude!

Max - The wolfies also sent a really special keyring for female human. Here it is - she didn't manage to get a good photo of it, but she loves the keyring!

Cute keyring - it's really cool!

JD - It has 6 charms which are really cute and one of the charms is a schnauzer - it's amazing! You can just about make out the schnauzer in the photo below....

Bit blurred but you can just make out the schnauzer - FH LOVES it!!

Max - So, in honour of our great and generous wolfie pals we dedicate this 'splorin' post to them!

JD - Yup - we wanted to take you on one of our very own 'splorin' adventures! So, please join us for our morning walk, as we watch the sun-rise over the sea....

When we got to the beach the sun was just starting to rise over the sea this morning - isn't it pretty?

We were eager to get down on the beach!

The tide was out this morning so we got to investigate the big rocks that are usually under the sea!

JD "*Sniff! Sniff!* Hmm, the seaweed smells a bit fishy over here Max!"
Max - "Great, thanks JD - I'll be over for a taste right now!"

JD and Max strike a handsome silhouette against the horizon. If you biggify the picture you can see the wind-farm that is sited off our coast.

JD - "Female human was very pleased at this photo - the sunrise really was spectacular this morning...."

JD - "....but I knew that a puppy romping through would make the photo EVEN better!"

With the sun fully over the yard arm the boys turn their attentions to the very serious matter of a game of chase!

JD investigates some rocks.

FH found this bottle buried in the sand and took a snapshot. She was intrigued by the wording on it - "To buy or sell this bottle is illegal". How strange. Um, sort of leaves stealing it as the only legal option then, he he he! She wonders what it used to hold....

Max has a good sniff along the sea defenses....

....and JD perfects his 'kindly direct that flashy box in a different direction' glare at FH!

The boys run along the beach. You can see Clacton Pier on the left of this photo and at the top of the photo are the gardens that run along most of the sea-front. This is the beach that is a stone's throw from our front-door. Sadly, it's not open to dogs from May to September, but we still have 2 whole months to enjoy it!

JD poses next to the rocks with the pier as a rather nice backdrop!

The boys finish their morning 'splorin' session with a mad dash round the rocks - JD is having so much fun he has become a blur!!

Max - We hope you all enjoyed our little 'splorin' adventure today!

JD - Yup, it was great fun to post about it. Thank you SO much for your wonderful gifts Guinness and Saige and Groucho and your kind and generous humans. You're the best!!

What a cool book....I can't believe Guinness was the cover model!! How did he get into that cool book? That was very sweet of them to send you a copy. And your beach looked amazing...what a gorgeous day! I would have been sniffing the fishies too!

We loved going on your morning walk, look at that gorgeous sunrise - what time do you guys get up anyway 3am?
That looks like a lovely place where you live!

Wow ! way to go on being in the book Guinness ! You two sure have fun at the beach ! ;)

Clive said...

Hi JD and Max

What great presents from the splorin Wolfies. That book is wonderful and very special to have Guinness in it!

We absolutely love all the beach photos - the colours are magnificent in them - we had to look through them twice so we could appreciate them even more! Tell FH she took some great shots! One of those would be lovely on canvas! That's what we do sometimes with photos we love - the local photo shop is able to enlarge them on canvas and the result can be really effective!

Hope you get lots more runs on the beach before May!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Those are splendid pressies that you got from Guiness and his humans! And I think you are just super lucky to be able to roam freely on the beach! Mom is very envious that you are so well-behaved and get to walk leash free...she claims that I will run away as soon as she takes the leash off and refuses to do so! >.<"

Hope your FH's shoulder is feeling better!


The Bennett Blog said...

Aniemother said...

What a great pressie! We got a great pressie in the mail the other day, too, and posted today ;D

We also LOVE the beach photos, and Mom is utterly in love with the steal-only-bottle. That's just the thing that would have her showing pix of the thing to everyone. Humans are weird.
