All the best laid plans usually don't work out. On vacation, I had happily envisioned romping with the two beagles on the beach and dashing between the small waves at the water's edge. However, we were unable to get poor Freckles on to the beach due to the amount of steps he would have had to climb and descend to actually set paw on the beach. His back legs are unfortunately not in very good condition.
Therefore, my husband had to turn around and take him back home. I continued on to the beach with Ruby, only discover that she is petrified of the ocean.
Can you see "terrified" written all over her face?
I have never before been able to see such changes in a dog's face take place but plainly you can see Ruby is not at all enamored with the ocean like we are. She definitely has a "white knuckled" grip going on in this photo.....
