End of Summer Barbeque
Harlow and I were invited to an 'End of Summer Dog Friendly Barbeque on the Beach' last night. Boris was invited too, but because he gets so excited and out of control, I thought it would be better to just take Harlow. It would be too much excitement for Boris at his age. It was a small cookout, just 9 people and 4 dogs. I don't usually go to social gathers, but I couldn't resist doggies on the beach.
Harlow had so much fun playing with Maddie, Winston and Tallie. The Retrievers are used to swimming, but Harlow wasn't afraid, she jumped right in, knew she could only go out so far and kept within her safe limits. She had so much fun watching the other dogs get the floaties and balls out of the water and she tried to get them too.
At one point the flies were really bad and I thought I'd have to take her home. But then the breeze changed and the flies were gone. The food was very good and Harlow was surprisingly well behaved while we all ate outside. By the end of the night she was fall over from being so tired, and was asleep in the car on the way home.
