I'm still looking at my vacation photos, deleting the awful among them, and decided to share the happiness expressed by dogs on the beach. The beach, if you are wondering, was amazingly clean. Despite dogs being at the beach all the time, the only trace they left was their paw prints in the sand.
As you can see, all these dogs have collars. There were also a few "stray" dogs who live at the beach, but they were the most friendly and healthiest strays I've ever encountered. They are the ones that are called "beach dogs," and I'm told that when they have litters of pups, the pups are usually adopted by families living nearby.
