Beach bum. Beach bum, she’s a beach bum

Daisy’s house arrest is finally over. So it was SuperTreat Saturday at Daisy Cottage. An unsuspecting Daisy was bundled into the car, paranoid that it might mean another trip to the dreaded vets, but no we turned to go to Ilkley not to Skipton. Once in Ilkley the back seat of the car was filled with an overexcited Daisy, who was growing more and more inpatient at the slow moving traffic in the centre of Ilkley.

But we finally made it to the beach, well maybe beach in pushing it a little but near to Ilkley Lido is a stone beach on the River Wharfe popular with paddling children, stone throwing teenagers and water loving dogs alike. Poor James was being dragged by an exuberant Daisy who just wanted to jump into the river and get her paws wet.

Ans so it was for the next 30 minutes that James threw stones into the water and Daisy went charging across the beach and into the water, had a bit of a swim and then the whole process was repeated over and over and over and over again. Until when she was totally tired a very wet Daisy got back  into the car for the short ride home. And is now snuggled up in a happy but sleepy little  ball on the spare bed watching me type about her latest adventure. A good day for Daisy? I think it just might have been.

Love Maddie and Daisy x

    She had a great time, it was so good to see her out and enjoying herself. Don’t tell her but she is going up to the North East for a frolic on the real beach in two weeks, then the week after that we are taking her up the Yorkshire Dales to find some nice streams and wiers to play in.
