Huntington Dog Beach

Stay With Me Now

I found myself at Huntington beach on a cold Saturday afternoon. With Sergio and his dog, Carmello, i wandered the beach with my camera. Every now and again, i'd catch a glimpse of Sergio running along the ocean screaming Carmello's name. I'd look to find the disobedient dog, only to see his small brown body far in the distance. Sergio's exhausting attempts to catch his dog were useless.

Carmello is the perfect definition of "bad dog". His loving disposition is unfailing, but his ability to obey is somewhat off. On energy overload, he ran and jumped in every direction. Sergio even caught him peeing on a couple of people. Sergio would sadly reply with, "I'm sorry, it's his first time." As Carmello continued to confidently display his bad behavior, i snapped pictures of some of the other dogs.

A small poodle playful pranced along the beach happily. Two labs fought over a toy, both holding either end of it as they waded through the water. Lost and scared, a small white dog searched helplessly for it's family. From loyal friends, to trouble makers, dogs of all kinds trotted happily through the sandy water. All dog's go to heaven, and the big dog beach in the sky, awaits their arrival.

    I love dog beach! We moved inland three years ago but still drive down to HB on weekends so our Gilligan can commune with his friends :-)
