Fun at the Beach

We've been taking Maya to the beach more often lately. Mostly because she gets less allergic reactions comparing to regular dog parks, but also because she would spend more time running and use up more energy. The weather has been really nice in the past few weeks, and we enjoyed walking up and down the coast as well.

On 5/5, we went to a Shiba Inu meetup at Fort Funston. Too bad my camera's battery died before other shibas showed up, so I only got pictures of Maya. Many of the other shibas haven't been there before, so were a bit cautious and stayed out of the water. A few owners were also kind of nervous and didn't let their dogs off leash. Maya used up her energy before meeting the shibas and found the meetup a bit boring, so we left a bit early. On our way back we ran into M.C. and the two Bows. It was great to finally meet them!

Last weekend, we took a road trip to San Diego for a friend's wedding. We found a nice dog beach at Del Mar and Maya had a great time. We were glad we went there, since the first night at the hotel Maya was barking at every sound she heard, but slept through the night like a baby after the beach workout on the second day.


  1. Love the pictures! I can understand why other shiba owner's are weary with letting their dog off leash some shiba just don't do good on recall..

    Saya does well, but some I know would run off and not come back ever.

    Hope they were on longer leashes so they could run some. hehe

    Saya never been to a beach not many here in Indiana she been on a lake that had a island and it was bit sandy Saya mainly dug in the sand and then came to swim once she got hot.

    I'm glad Maya does well off leash. :)

  2. That's a hilarious expression on Maya's face, next to the pile of seaweed. It was lovely meeting Maya, too. Adorable, the way she rubs against people's legs.

    I only managed to get a couple good pictures of Bowdu and Maya. I'll post one shortly. ;)
