I don't know where we are going to come up with the ten-million dollar down payment. But clearly, we have no choice in the matter. We can't deprive our dog of the pure joy that sand and sea bring her.
We bought that ball at Trancas Market because we got all the way to Malibu and realized that we failed to bring any dog toys. But, as it turns out, we didn't need to bring any dog toys because the beach comes fully equipped with dog toys and they are called: sea gulls. Also, she loves to chase sand pipers. And bits of sea weed. And dig for sand crabs. In fact, no aspect of the shore is lost on Ole Sid.
But, seriously, could you look at this fuzzy face and say no? (Click on image to experience maximum cuteness).
