Fred turned ten months old on Sunday.
I took him to the beach for a sunset walk to celebrate.
It’s been so hot lately.
Fred wanted to spend some of his beach time hanging out on the cool, wet, sand.
Fred – Now a 10 Month Old Newfoundland Puppy!
Fred now weighs approximately 130 pounds.
(He kept moving as I tried to weigh him which is why I say “approximately.”)
Every time we go to the beach, Fred gets a lot of attention and love from total strangers.
He doesn’t seem to mind.
(When Fred gets tired of it, he lays down and sighs. “Why must everyone want to LOVE me?”)
Fred likes to go to the beach.
He enjoys the sand, seeing lots of people, meeting other dogs, and helping me take photos.
He’s afraid of waves that might “get him” when they approach.
They’re fine from a short distance away, but they’re scary up close!
I think Fred will gradually get used to waves as he matures and spends more time around them.
Fred currently LOVES “still” water, sprinklers, and water coming out of a hose.
Sand is fun to run in, to dig in, and to make his belly feel nice and cool.
Fred gets very excited when he realizes he’s getting a trip to the beach.
I was so happy to get some good shots of him at sunset.
It isn’t easy during tourist season when the beaches are crowded.
For Sunday’s walk, we were lucky enough to find a fairly unoccupied little cove.
Fred is a Newfie adolescent now.
He’s morphing from puppy to adult …
And, such a handsome one at that!
