Turn up your volume and listen to my tunes..wooooof!

I am dog. I believe in unconditional love. I do not settle for infatuation or puppy love. I believe in true love to the end. I am a life-long lover who will lie at your feet, on the bed, by your chair, at your side. I am dog. I insist on your love. I will stay on a grave of a lover until my end. I believe in commitment. When we have chosen each other, I will be there for you with plenty. Out of my heart flows life and love. You fill my life with abundance and I am fulfilled. Unconditional love is the highest gift. I am committed to love.

A day at the beach!

Kirby here!

Mom said that today we were going to go somewhere I haven't been before. So of course I'm like so excited! We took off in the car and drove for about 30 minutes. It was a beautiful sunny fall day in Michigan! We finally came to a park and we got out and started walking:But this wasn't any ordinary park...I haven't been to a park yet with sand on the walk ways! Then I looked up and saw this:
So, mom and I walked through this tunnel and then we came to this:Mom said this place is called Lake Michigan! WOW! Here are few more pretty pics my mom took: Mom and I walked ALL the way down the beach in the above picture! You see, most of the parks along Lake Michigan do not allow dogs in the parks or on the beaches in the summer. However, starting October 1, us four legged furriends get our days at the beach! It wasn't very crowded at all and mom and I walked for quite awile and saw no one. Mom wanted to see if I liked water or not:Guess what? That's a big NO! That cold water touched my paws and I had had enough of that! I stayed on higher ground after that. Besides there were way to many smells and try to figure out!Here is picture of me posing by the water.
So mom and I walked one way down the beach for quite a while, then we turned around and headed back. We walked and walked and walked till we came to this:
Yes, after all that walking through the sand, we were going to walk up all those steps!!! Actually I think I was doing way better than mom! When we got to the top this was our view:

Mom and I sat down at the top and enjoyed the BREEZE! check out my face:

Yeah, this was great up here! It was sunny and breezy and just so much to see:
Well, mom and I sat there for quite a while, just enjoying the day. Then we headed back to the car for a drink of cold water!
When we got home guess what else I got? A BATH!! Apparently mom doesn't want sand and stuff in her bed and I had sand on my nose and face and stuff. Okay, I stood there like a drowned rat and took it. I got mom back afterwards though by trying to eat the towels! So mom and I came to an understanding that you probably wouldn't want to see a picture of drowned rat so here is another handsome picture of me:That was a fun adventure that me and my mom went on. Stay tuned for next weekend when I may be visiting some place nicknamed, "the ledges!". Mom has to find out if they allow dogs there or not. Cross your paws that they do!
Kirby, aka beach dude!


  1. Wow looks like such a great adventure!!!! I hope that they allow dogs there so that you are able to go back! We don't have a lot of places with water around here for mommy to take us...

  2. Hey Kirby,
    Love those photos-looks like you had a great time, too! Lucky you to live so close to such a beautiful body of water:-)

  3. Looks like a great time!! We are on the other side of Lake Michigan (Chicago) and I love the beach, too!

    Your pal, Pip

  4. Looks like a great place to walk!
    I've been to the beach before... the best time of my life!

    Love Miley xxx

  5. That is a beautiful place! How nice that you get to play on the beach in the fall. Maybe you would like the water if it wasn't so cold?

  6. Great walk Kirby! The sand on your beach looks really soft :)

    I probably wouldn't like the cold water either. I'm pretty spoiled with the warm gulf waters :)

    Of all the fabulous photos, I think I like the one with the wind in your face the most BOL :)

    Waggin at ya,

  7. Woof! Dillon here...Lil' dude-how cool! But you have to jump in the water just once-us labs love it! Personally I'd love to see the cats thrown in there (but you did not hear that from moi!) I have never been to the beach and I dont know if my old heart could take going up and down those steps..but you young nippers can do that. My mom is still checking into the ledges...we will let you know lil'd dude!
    Dillon, your friend in the East.

  8. Hey Kirby, Mum loved the pictures! She is from St. Charles, IL and spent lots of time on Lake Michigan when she was growing up! Small world eh?

    You are tres photogenic - you should be modeling!

    Love, Dozer and Cooper

  9. I've tried to post on here twice from my phone and it wouldn't post! Love, love, love these pictures - especially Kirby's new profile picture!!! You are so lucky to have such a beautiful beach nearby.


  10. What a lovely day you had, Kirby! You're so lucky that the lake and beach was quite deserted. The ones here are ALWAYS full of other people and doggies, it's difficult to get some 'alone' time.
