Gotta be honest – when I was putting together this 52 week photo challenge, I knew that my family would be on vacation this week and that’s exactly why I chose TRAVEL as this week’s theme.
We’ve had pets the entire time we’ve been married, a little more than 24 years. But believe it or not, in all that time, we’ve never traveled with a pet… until this trip. We boarded Nike and Snickers, but I just didn’t feel good about leaving Miss Sadie behind. After all, she just turned 16 and she’s not in the best of health, and she’s become very attached to me over the last few months. I couldn’t bear the thought of leaving her behind and having her wonder where I’d gone and when I’d be back.
So, we brought our little wiener dog to the beach with us and I gotta tell you, she’s had a blast. She’s loved the warmer temperatures, the breeze off the ocean, and most of all, being an “only child”. It’s the first time in her life that she’s had us all to herself and didn’t have to “compete” for attention.
These are two of my favorite moments from this week:
Sadie and Daddy enjoying the beautiful view of the beach from the balcony of our condo at Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Sadie taking her first walk on the beach.
In fact, our little Doxie has become such an expert traveler, we plan to take her along with us when we venture to the BlogPaws conference in Nashville this May.
52 Snapshots is a weekly themed photo challenge, but it’s not just for pet bloggers. It’s for anyone who loves to take photos, and everyone is invited to participate!
