Beach Day in Carmel

7/23/12

Did you know there's an off-leash dog beach in Carmel? I only learned of it recently and knew I had to take the dogs there. My friend Laura came with me and brought her dogs Bella and Dylann too. 

The smooth, white sand at the beach was surprisingly clean for a beach with lots of dogs running around. Our dog pack ran around greeting other dogs and humans. Stanley is a social butterfly, while Little Joe prefers to stay right behind me like a shadow. 

After a long walk on the beach with our pups, Laura and I took them to Diggity Dog, a dog boutique in Carmel with lots of great stuff. As you walk in, there are large buckets full of dog treats sold by the scoop. I let Stan and Joe pick out which kind of treats they wanted. I think they thought I was fooling them at first, but then they got excited when the treats went into my bag. They earned it for being such good dogs.

Carmel is such a dog-friendly town. Dogs are welcome in so many businesses there. If you go to Diggity Dog's website, they have a list of all the dog-friendly establishments in town. As a dog person, I really love that and it makes me want to visit Carmel again soon.

  2. Oh, how I miss Carmel and the beaches there! Looks like we did the reverse move. You just moved to California from Singapore. And I just moved to Singapore from California. (We lived in Monterey, which is near Carmel.)

    Cheers,
    Kristina

  6. That is some WHITE sand to make Stan look so dark. They look like they had a blast! I wish I could hear the script in their heads- "hey Joe is this for real? Weren't we just in Singapore getting attacked by mosquitoes?" Joe- "mrrrrrr, I never know if I'm dreamin dude!" Stan-"you think I can get away with chewing on that old french fry in the sand right there? Cover for me!(dig, dig, dig)" Joe- "duuuude, she's watchin, hurry up! Ayayay, I'm always having to cover for your a--wow what a beautiful day! Wonder where I can nap"
