As of Tuesday (after Labor day), I got my beach back! So Mom said we can go back to our old routine. I take a long walk (3 t0 6 miles) on leash with Mom and I can have off leash swim time before and after. But the other day I started walking real slow and looked at Mom with sad eyes and reminded her that I was soon going to be nine years old. So she felt bad and said from now on I didn't have to do the walks, and I can just do all swimming and playing off leash! I can't believe life got even better in San Diego! Please pinch me so I know I'm not dreaming. Ouch!
