Not all dogs are created equal, and that’s a great thing. Especially for a pup like Penny who has a lot of different interests. With summer in full swing, the beach is packed with dogs of every stripe. Penny, my social butterfly, makes sure to spend time with each and every one.
While relaxing in the shallows, Penny prefers to chat up the small pups
But small dogs aren’t made for wild water romps
So Penny moves on to play with the lab-mixes and other water lovers
Back on land, the big bruisers are the most fun to wrestle with. But the big guys often lack speed, so when Penny wants to zoom…
She chases after the best in the business – the greyhounds!
In a sprint, Penny has no hope of catching her pal, but eventually her persistence helps her tire out the speedster
Of all these great friends, there’s one pup who holds the title of “best friend.” Tripp, a Rhodesian Ridgeback a few months older than Penny, is a sweet and playful pup who matches up with her perfectly.
Tripp bounding full speed might scare off some other pups, but it’s Penny’s favorite sight
In fact, you can see in Tripp’s eyes that he knows Penny’s a nut!
The two love to bounce off each other up and down the sand
Even Eko gets in on the romp. It’s only anecdotal evidence, but it really seems like both Eko and Penny gravitate towards playing with other Ridgebacks
All smiles from the best pals
After a long winter when the beach was often empty, it’s great to have so many friends to hang/swim/wrestle/chase/romp with. It’s going to be an awesome, friend-filled summer!
