Beach Baby Bash

Let me start out by saying I am not the most experienced traveler. After all, I am a pandemic pup. My worldview was limited to the confines of BD&E, my house and my backyard. This October we decided to venture out to the seashore of Virginia Beach. It was a long car ride to an unfamiliar place. Being a retriever, I am super alerted by the smells, sounds and sometimes frightening movement of the ocean and its surroundings. Luckily, my buddy Mister has an inspiring way of calming me. You see, Mister is blind. He places a lot of trust in the world—and in his human, Nicole. He encourages me to be brave and take in new experiences. Maybe next time I will go in the water!
