|this was me a year ago.|
i was a lot smaller.
|i had never seen that much water before.|
the ocean is much bigger than my bathtub at home.
|when we first got to the beach i told Teddy that |
this water was for playing and not for drinking.
|the ocean was just as beautiful as i imagined it would be|
|Teddy was so happy to be off-leash. |
he was the fastest dog there.
|i have to admit i did not go in too deep |
but some dogs went out really far.
|we saw so many happy dogs on the beach |
but i think i was the only one having a birthday.
|Teddy said he liked the smell of the ocean air |
better than the smell of smoggy air.
|the best part was that there were SQUIRRELS living in |
the rocks at the back of the beach.
i climbed to the very top so i could make sure
no SQUIRRELS were terrorizing the ocean.
| i think my 1st birthday celebration was a success. it makes me happy |
that my family wanted to share the ocean with me.
