The Beach and the Monster

Hi Everyone, first off an apology for not visiting anyone for a while.  We had a few days away and now I've come down with some type of coldy/flu type thing.  Sheesh! 

Howdy Everybuddy, now that mum has stopped whining talking, we want to tell you about our beach holiday!

We have NEVER been to the beach before!  Can you believe it?  Nearly two years old and mum and dad have been too lazy too busy to take us.  Anyhoo that has been changed now cause we stayed at a beach house and dogs were allowed!!  Yes, that meant we stayed and played at the beach.  

Our cousin Jinx was there too and after we came home Tyler and our other sissy went as well!  

There was only one problem at the beach house.  Rory thought there was a monster on the ceiling.  He was really really scared of itMum took a photo cause she knew you would never believe we had a monster in the house.

 Yes, that's right mates.  A ceiling fan!  Didn't matter what we did or where we put Rory's bed, he would not walk under this terrible monster.


I couldn't help it furriends, I was really really scared.  I don't know why but it made me very nervous.  We don't have those monsters in our house.  Even my sister was scared.  See.


 Anyhoo, it was only a short walk to the beach and we had a blast.  Here are a few of the 8700 photos that mum took.  We were allowed off lead too, yaahooo! 

 Awww, mum, do you have to show this photo!  Yes sweetheart I do.  Between the four dogs they managed to poo every single time we took them to the beach!!  And yes, we picked up every one. The beach has bins and supplies poo bags at all entrances.  

 No, i'm not pooing here.  For some reason I was going to sit but then changed my mind cause the water tickled my bottom hehe.

Hey, Rory, have you tried drinking the water yet?

 Awww, Jinx, you trickster, it's salty!!

One of mum's favourite photos.  It's our new header photo.  Can you see that none of us has our feet on the ground!!! 

 Can you see me running towards a lady in a blue jacket in this photo.  I thought it was mum and ran up to her.  The lady gave me a pat and then when I turned around and saw my mum I legged it as fast as I could back to her.  I didn't want to get lost, no way!

 Here is me, chasing some seagulls.  Sadly I didn't catch any, they were fast little rascals.

For an old girl, Jinx sure can run!

 Mum said it was OK to wee in the water.  Yes, I know, I know, I wee like a girlie.

Time to go home and have a rest.  Dad as usual, has to make Rory jump over the fence.  Our Dad is a cracker at times hehe.

Here is a jet ski the Surf Lifesavers use if anybuddy gets in trouble in the water.  Mum nearly drowned us during this photo!!  A big wave came and nearly washed the jet ski into us!   I am wondering what the heck has happened to mum's hair ahahahaha.

We think because Jinx was a farm girl, she hasn't had much time on a lead.  She's a puller and likes to be first, hehe.

Well, that's all for now mates. 
We loved the beach.  It was heaps good.
 See ya soon.  
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory


  1. OMD!! We noticed that fantastic header straight away. We are so jealous, you got to go to that terrific beach....and you nearly had it all to yourselves. What a fantastic time. We have ceiling fans, so we're used to them.

    What a fabulous time you had. Bet you were tired when you got back to your beach house.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  2. Oh man.... It really looks like you guys had the BEST time EVER!! Our peeps went on a beach holiday and left Floyd and I BEHIND...

    We are SO JEALOUS!!

  3. Glad you had a fabulous holiday by the sea. It's just great having a beach to run around on/poo on, seagulls to chase and the sea to play in.
    It's a shame Rory was scared of the monster, we have one in our conservatory so it doesn't bother Annie...and we live by the sea so we know what fun you have had :-)
    Fabulous photos!

  4. Pawsome beach action guys. That looked like a brilliant holiday. We love the header pic as well. I hate anything to do with propellers so I would probably bark and run away from the ceiling fan too. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. That is a pawsome header - really beautiful! And what a great beach - we've never been to a beach either. Maybe one day...I don't think my Trilby would like the monster ceiling fan either - she's a bit of a softie that way :-). Thanks for sharing your great day out - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  6. Wow - what an awesome place for a good long run, playing chase and just chillin and relaxing. Those ceiling monsters can be scary....they make funny noises too.

  7. What a great vacation you had! It looked like you had the beach all to yourselves most of the time. How fun.


  8. OMD.... a BEACH MONSTER... That is scary fur sure Rory.
    Love your header pic.
    Jinx had a super time with you two... well, EVERYBUDDY did actually.
    Your pictures are all WONDERFUL. THANK fur SHARING the entire time with us.

  9. Oh my isn't the beach the best! My Lily loves the water and digging holes. After a fun day, you even get to lounge on the deck! What an awesome day.
    Benny & Lily

  10. Hi Stella and Rory!
    Wesa don't live near a beach, but it sure looks like fun.
    Our ceiling fans in our home look just like the one at the beachhouse. Kinda cool since we are all the way around the world.
    Much Luvums,

  12. Well first of all where were your water wings? We would have to wear those things to even go near any guys are soooo lucky...and second what beautiful pictures...we loved says we are living vicariously through you guys whatever that means!! That was a super duper vacation! In Iowa we do not have a ocean, heck cos of the drought we barely have a river.

  14. Oh my goodness. What a great time!! Hey Rory buddy just between you and me, I sometimes wee like a girl too. Sometimes it's not worth the effort to lift a leg. I have not been to a beach, well not one with salty water. I think I just might like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.

  15. It looks like a great holiday! Very beautiful! And the beach is such a fun place to run and play! My dogs love it, well, except for the water being salty :-)

  16. I am SOOO jealous of you guys, i wish i went on such an awesome holiday!!! It looks like so much fun! So glad Jinx tagged along too, she has fitted into your amazing family so well!!! BOL Rory you do pee like a girl!!! Buts don't worry, i only learned to cock my leg up this year!! BOL

    Pees- Love ALL the photies!!

  17. Wow? That has been fun! Thanks for sharing it.

  18. WOW!!!!! What great fun and what an amazing adventure!!! Your pictures make me jealous--I'd love to be able to take our pups to the warm beach right now and soak up some warm sun!! I'm glad you all had a great time!!

  19. Splendid vacation! Very beautiful and looks pretty private. I do love the header picture too. Looks like you pups were all on your best behavior too!

    Hope the next time is soon!

  20. That beach is gorgeous guys! We sure wish we could play with you- don't worry Rory we never catch the seagulls either :(


  21. Wow, what a beautiful beach! I bet the sand felt great under your paws and the smells were probably amazing. I don't blame Rory, you never know if those crazy fans have been attached properly. Could be dangerous. BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  22. Wonderful pics and a wonderful time at the beach. Good job on the poo too!

  23. Wow what a great time at the beach. But who was responsible for the BBQ????

  24. Hi Stella & Rory
    What a fantastic holiday that your humans took you on and how pawesome that you got to go to the beach every day. It looks like a lovely beach to with lovely sand to run in and nice where those sea gulls to be there just so you could chase them

  25. What an absolutely stunning beach! Where is it? Rory, you'll get used to the ceiling monster if you're around them a little. Abby was scared of ours when she first came to live here, because she'd never seen one. But now she doesn't even notice them - except when it's hot and she enjoys the breeze they make. Jed says not to worry about peeing like a girl, Rory; most guys do, when they're really relaxed and not trying to show off or leave pee-mail to impress the next dude. Hope your mum is feeling better now, and that no one else got ill.

  26. Stunning stunning beach photos Carol, these with the fam and the dogs are going to be something to really treasure. This is a truly beautiful selection of photos. Well done!!
    PS: Alpha male 'Fred' was also terrified of ceiling fans, really terrifed, we could not use them - ever!

  27. What a great time you must have had! I really enjoyed your photos (except for the scary monster on the ceiling). All those beach pictures were just I needed today as we are having a severe winter storm with lots of snow and high winds. Oh I long for the beach!

    Was the beach as vacant as it looked in the photos?

  28. What beautiful pictures. So glad you made it there. We hope your Mum feels better in no time!

    Oink oink,
    Katie and Coccolino the mini pig

  29. What gorgeous beach shots! You must have had a hard time choosing just one for your header. All of your pictures are beautiful!
    Molly used to be scared of our paddle fan too, Rory, but she got over it quickly.

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  30. I can see how a dog not raised with ceiling fans would find them to be monsters

    Stop on by for a visit

  31. What a great adventure and such pretty photos. Love the shots with the rippled sand, water and dogs.
    Hey Rory, I'm afraid of our chandelier and it doesn't even move! No worries Mate!


  32. Hi, you have a wonderful beach. And I'll bet you are a very good surfer too - maybe on the counter top too - like me?

  33. Even tho you got sick and we are so sorry for that, we are so glad you had such a wonderful time at the beach!!!!!! It looked like so much fun!!! just so GLAD that you had a GREAT time!!!
    Beautiful photos too!!! Beautiful beach!!

  34. Wow great pics, it looks like a great adventure.


  35. OK, our mom is a bit jelly dat you gots to go on a beach holiday. Her luvs da ocean and really wants to live closer to it. We has never been to one but I am sure we would likes it too! Great fotos!

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae and Max

  36. Oh doggie, wot fun times you had. And could it be any more bootiful there? I did try to drink that salt water once BLECH BLECH BLECH!

  37. What a lovely vacation! It's terrific that Mum found a place which is Dog Friendly. Those can be tricky sometimes. We always had to sneak Thor and his predecessor, Sarge, in through the back door, but they were so well behaved that no one ever knew they were there - probably just like you guys! Glad you're enjoying your summer!

    xoxo Marjie
