Fetch

I didn’t get a chance to take Lilly for a trail run yesterday due to our marathon spring cleaning efforts.  The resulting guilt left Kelly and me with a sense of obligation to ensure we took Lilly out for some fun first thing this morning.  The sun was shining and the temperatures were balmy so  we decided to take her to the beach for a round of fetch.

Lilly loves the beach and is instantly excited once she sees the fetch-stick and ball combo and it’s all that we can do to contain her enthusiasm during the quick five-minute walk from our Airstream to the waterfront.

Per usual, Lilly had only one speed today – sprint.  Her inability to pace often leaves her huffing-and-puffing something serious.  As a result, every so often Lilly likes to stall by playing it coy.

But inevitably, her desire to chase the ball returns and she’s once again off and running.

Lilly had a blast which always places a smile on my face.
