Cobalt: Visiting Photon at Cherry Beach -- With Pictures!

As I mentioned before, we arranged to visit with Photon at Cherry Beach last Saturday so that we could bring out the big cameras. Up to now, we'd only met up with Photon's folks by chance, so we'd only had the small point-and-shoot with us.

We ended up shooting 655 photos (the DSLR does 9 shots a second in burst mode). We usually expect to post about 10% of our shots to Flickr, but this time, I ended up going with twice that. The set below is just a small selection of what's up on the Flickr pages!

L & I arrived a little early, so Cobalt got a head start on the zooming.

After we'd been there about 15 minutes, Peter, Laura, and Jon arrived with Photon, who made a bee-line for Cobalt.

Target Acquisition

Cobalt's the bigger and stronger sister, but Photon's the one that usually starts all the trouble.


You Are Falling Under My Spell!
(Bela Lugosi voice) "You are falling under my spell! Wooooo!"

Then, the zooming starts.

Dead Heat


Full Speed

On The Beach

Watch Out, Lady!

Though they have to stop to catch their breath from time to time.


Stop Hogging The Water
"Stop hogging the water!"

Yeah, Right There, That's the Spot
"Yeah, right there, that's the spot!"

Exploring the Beach

And what's a trip to the beach without beach-balls?

Got Get 'Em!


Got The Balls

Bringing 'Em Back

Then the wrestling starts...

I Vant To Suck Your Blood!
(Bela Lugosi voice) "I vant to suck your blood!"


Temporary Truce

Mutual Support

"What? Us? Rough-housing? We're good girls."

Of, course, not all the photos I got were of the two pups together. Here are some of Cobalt by herself.





Sandy Muzzle
She got covered in sand. You can't see it here, but she got sand all over her tongue as well.

I ended up taking a lot of solo photos of Photon as well. She got herself very wet, and really seemed to like the driftwood sticks.
