Just like last year, Jack and I took off for the Oregon coast to get away and celebrate my birthday. This year it was Seaside, Oregon. This time it wasn’t just the two of us. We brought one the four-legged babies; Mia.
The weather couldn’t have been better. It was warm and near 60 degrees during the day and each night we were treated to beautiful sunsets.
As always when the weather is nice on the Oregon Coast, the scenery was breathtaking.
What was different was having a puppy tagging along. She required a bit of work, but she was mostly a ton of fun to have with us.
We spent our first night relaxing in the hotel and getting rested up because the next day was spent walking around and shopping. Mia was with us the whole time and attracted a LOT of attention from the many people enjoying the coastal shopping opportunities that day. Seaside is pretty dog-friendly. Many shops allow the dogs inside and even put out bowls of water for the pups outside their doors. Many people stopped to pet her and she enjoyed every second of it.
For Mia’s first time out on the beach we kept her leashed and close to us. The second day we got brave and let her go off-leash to see what she’d do. To our delight she stayed close to us most of the time and came running every time we called her if she wandered too far.
She discovered the joys of digging.
Jack did too. 🙂 We’ll probably pay for that this summer when we have no yard left.
We were thoroughly impressed with how well-behaved she was the entire weekend, especially being only 5.5 months old! She sure is a smart one!
