Beach Bound Hounds 2010

Kristen and I just returned from another great year at Beach Bound Hounds in Myrtle Beach, SC. We had great weather! But let the photos speak for themselves!!!
Before we leave, Jason has a snuggle fest with Dana.the first morningStanley, Jaime, Dana and Cali enjoy the hotel room.We head out to the beach to enjoy some cooler morning temps. Stanley surveys the landDana watches the waves roll inAnd Cali lays down as any Diva would.Kristen and I do not attend this event for the seminars or educational material. We attend to lay on the beach with our dogs. BUT this year..we were able to attend a seminar ON the beach and it was awesome!
He looks pretty cute..huh?Brace for impact.



The face off begins a second time



Cali wonders why he is so angry (yes..we were this close and this all happened with about 30 greyhounds and people standing around..they were crazy trained)
And they made sure the dogs weren't just attacked the suit.
Then let him at it again.
he almost went down on this attack, which I don't think would have been a good move.
then this guy drew the short stick and had to wear the 'normal clothes' bite suit so that the dogs wouldn't only want to attack guys in down jackets.then we hung on the beach with the dogs for a whileDana slept on her nose and Jaime slept on Cali for a whileThen we went to dinner at Barefoot Landing. we caused quite a stir.The next morning was just as beautifulMore beach timeWe also saw quite a few (at least 5) weddings in front of our hotel. It was odd for a few reasons..one it was easily 90 degrees and BAKING hot on the sand. Two..that path through the sea grass was the exact path 300 greyhounds took every morning/night when they HAD to go..so most made it to that point. Since liquid doesn't 'pick up well'..it just accumulated. And stunk. That ONE place..every other path you see was fine. A day to remember...
That night we had a gorgeous harvest moonand had pizza delivered to the hotel deck by the ocean. We moved the deck chairs to form a 'corral' and had 13 greyhounds and a whippet (Cali, Dana, Stanley, Jaime, Tempest, Sidney, Dolly, Diego, Ally, Sandy, Maggie, Booyah, Cueball and Pippi)The final morning everyone gathers for a morning blessing. We watched from the balcony. It was a great trip.
