    A great tribute! ..and I wish I had a dog beach by me to take Pickles! The closest one is an hour away! But, I’d always have those memories to add so I might just take him!

    That sounds like the perfect afternoon to just get away and enjoy some time with Maddie! And good job to her for swimming! My brother’s dog Molly went to a dog beach last week and swam for her first time too! Haha she was so scared of the waves at first!

    Sounds like the perfect afternoon to get away for a little while.

    I love watching my parents jack Russell/Miniature Pinscher play in the water – it’s the cutest thing in existence.

    Beautiful note from your mom! It’s definitely a lonely feeling in the beginning. She has grandogs that will help with that though.

    Looks like a fab time at the beach. Way to go, Maddie!

    What a sweet comment from your Mom. I totally balled while reading your last two posts because i reminded me of losing my last dog, Max. Hang in there. Maddie loves you! :)

    Oh man! My dog is such an awesome swimmer, but she HATES it! When I lived in FL, I brought her to dog beach every weekend. And she had a great time running around and playing with the other dogs, but as soon as they went swimming, she ran away and found new, non-swimming friends! :)

    Aw, what a great way to honor Scooby! I didn’t comment yesterday because I was sitting in my cube with tears running down my face and couldn’t put any words together. But Scooby clearly had the best life possible and so does Maddie. That is so amazing that she SWAM! Go Maddie!! Okay, you have me crying again today so I think we need that vibrator give away soon to lighten the mood :)

    I am glad that you and Maddie had a wonderful day and Maddie had a new milestone. I am certain Scooby had a big doggie grin watching her.

    I always think i’s totally a blessing in disguise when your phone doesn’t have service on the beach/in the park/etc….makes you appreciate what’s right in front of you!

    Glad you had a good day with your puppy!

    So sorry about your pup! Losing a pet is really, really hard. We just lost one of our dogs a few weeks back. Stay strong!

    Can I just tell you that everytime I see a picture of Maddie, she makes me smile. She is so adorable and I love how she looks straight into the camera for pictures. So cute!! Sounds like you guys needed a day on the beach!

    You are so right that when you lose a dog, having another one around is such a gift. I was so happy to have Margot to comfort me when we lost our dog Ted last December.
    I’m so glad you and Maddie had such a blast at the beach!
