Beach Bound Hounds
Our adoption group, Greyhound Crossroads, puts on a greyhound beach vacation called Beach Bound Hounds at the end of September every year. We have one entire hotel reserved in Myrtle Beach, SC and have overflowed from that into other hotels. We had around 500 greyhounds and their owners this year. We have seminars, demos, vendors, contests and even went to a dinner theater with our dogs this year for a show. It is a lot of work but we have a lot of fun too. BBH was Miles second trip to the beach. His first was to Sandy Paws in GA when he was 8 weeks old.
My friend Ann took some photos of us together on the beach
Yes he is nipping my butt!! Very gently though. He has very good bite inhibition from playing with this littermates his entire life.
Miles loves the water and the ocean was no exception. He kept trying to drink the water when he got hot like he does in our pool.
Miles attended his first wedding while we were there. Have no idea who they were.
Miles was safely on leash when all the pictures were taken. I removed his leash using Photoshop in a few of the better photos.
The sand was WAY too much fun! Running, digging and just being a crazy pup.
Miles did great at BBH. He was in a fabric crate in the hotel room when I wasn't there and was quiet and didn't try to get out. He never had one accident in the suite that I shared with a bunch of other people. Although it was part of the hotel it was so large it was very much like a house. Miles earned his Canine Good Citizen title while we were at the Beach. He also got a little trophy for winning the fastest speak contest in 9/100s of a second.
