The puppy rescue

Today was a perfect day to go to the beach with the dogs.
Saturday afternoon, blue skies, 25 degrees, light breeze. Doesn't get better than that.

The dogs love it there, Chomsky runs around and plays with the other dogs. August loves to fetch and swim in the ocean.

The waves were pretty big, and the water, super cold. It's still the end of winter here, so you try to keep away from it. Allen was throwing the ball mainly on the sand, and in the water close by so August could go get it running in the water, not swimming.

Only, we came up to a spot where there was a slope in the ground under the water. So when August ran to go get the ball, she sank to her neck and waves started crashing over her. She was trying to get the ball, and kept going, but after another big wave sunk her completely, Allen got into paramedic mode and ran in the water and jumped in the waves to get her out. She immerged in his arms, with the ball in her mouth. Allen carried her out of the water and I got the whole thing on camera!

The great thing is that August was completely unphased by it all. She kept going back in the waves after that. But Allen was freezing! So we cut our walk a bit short...
