Most dogs, big or small, pedigree or mongrel, love the beach. It’s a place of freedom where they can run wild together or alone. Some bark at the waves as though they were strangers intruding in their territory, others jump and dive in the surf while their more serious minded companions stroll purposefully along the sand. My current companion, part beagle and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, starts out with a stroll but once she is off her leash breaks into a mad dash of the length of the beach. She always looks back to see that I am still there.
I am very grateful that the local councils have dedicated part of the beautiful coastline of Northern NSW to the exclusive enjoyment and pleasure of our canine friends. After all a happy dog brings happiness to both their owner and the local community.
