A little Roy.

We did manage to get away for a few days,  and for anyone who has shared a residence with an aging
parent, well, you know how precious that time can be.

Roy went, too.   I couldn't even contemplate leaving him in a kennel.
Not. Ever. Happening.

He loved the beach, and for once I didn't have to grumble about how many times he stopped to pee or sniff.
There was no place really to do either.
So instead, we walked.  And when Roy walks with a mission to get somewhere, you better fire up your engines, cause you're going to be moving right along.

There is no kid ANYWHERE that is as easy a travel companion as Roy.
He is quiet, and agreeable, and very low maintenance.

Whatever he is doing, he does 100%.  And whatever the circumstance, he does his best to go with it.
Anyone could learn a lot from Roy.

He was not distracted by these birds.  In fact, he is not distracted by much.

He did, however, make certain not to get his feet wet.  
He doesn't like 'wet'.

Right, Roy?

And when he's done, he's done.
For real.

Good night Roy.
Sleep tight.

Aw..he's just precious. What a sweet little soul. He looks plum tuckered out on his bed. That's a happy dog. Hugs,

Oh my! What a lovely beach. Where did you go if I may ask?

Roy looks delighted to be on the beach with you. What a lucky dog he is to have found you. :-)))

Oh Roy...love his focus, too!! And that beach! Where ever it is I want to go! Haven't breathed salt air in way too long.

Dogs and the beach - like peas & carrots! (have really never understood that peas & carrots thing though)

Second to last photo "Thanks Mom, that was just what I needed".
He's a pit, right? Is he anything else?
He certainly found a great home with you.

Welcome to my world.
