This weekend, I have a four-footed companion, Ginger. Her family is out of town for the weekend. A few months back, I told her family if they ever needed a dog-sitter, they should call on me. And so they did.

Ginger and I went out to the beach this morning.

She absolutely had to roll in the sand:

After a good walk and a shower in at the beach, she graciously posed for this shot even though the sun was in her eyes:

Back at my apartment, she kept watch from my balcony on the neighborhood.

Later, she contented herself with relaxing on my balcony bench.

She humored me again by posing for these pictures:

I hope my dear four-footed companion, Kitty, in Thailand, isn't too jealous. But after all, Ginger is here and Kitty is there. See how I am?

What is that old saying or song?

"If you are not with the one you love, love the one you're with.

I am sure Kitty will understand. lol

Ginger is absolutely beautiful. And, quite regal and majestic even after a good romp on the beach. I wonder if she is on to something, a roll in the sand before a bath/shower?

Great pics.

I'm horrified. You westerners always come to my country and invoke the 10,000 kilometer rule to be unfaithful.
But I didn't think you would replace me so fast and even be so public about it.
You never took suggestive pictures like that of ME! (Thank God, or you post those shameless pictures for all to see, as if I were just a piece of meat!)
Just wait until the next time you want me on your lap and see what I put there.

Pretty girl, with a pretty carer. What a picture you both must make walking on your beach in California. It is lovely to see the beach that starts (?) here and bumps into there (?). Both sides of the Pacific and we share the same water.
Nice thought.

She's a good dog. Good girl. Stay.

Alas, poor Kitty is an accomplished techno-dog.

Methinks, the next time you visit Kitty more photos will be taken.

My guess is that she will eagerly greet you and tell her staff to bug off if they try to interfere. lol

Maybe you should post some of the Kitty pics you were keeping to yourself.

A pink dog, indeed. Only in California. lol

True enough, K9. That there pooch surely looks to be the majestic of those who perch on the chair.

As for the statue....it's a tough call. I find that most people actually request what they have at hand, be it great or belittling. However, the openning was a "quickie" from the bible (hmm...never thought you'de get a quickie out'a the bible, didja?) about no more tears and pain.
Strangely, that phrase could mean that we all reincarnate into plants and bugs and reptiles later, eh?
Hope not, 'cause I don't wanna eat any more bugs!

But, the dog is cool!
