Beach! I'm taking my two to the desolate stormy beach on Tuesday! It's all dog all the time. We play stick and chase and go out on the long sandy shore, get wet and tired. Go back to the condo, they nap and we play Lego or do jigsaws. We eat and repeat.

Going on a long hike up in the mountains, there's a certain 15 mile loop that I really love within about a half hour of my house. It starts in this canyon area between some hills with a creek running through it, goes up into the timberline where you can see the ski hill about 16 miles out of town then back down to where you started. It's a full day excursion and it's so much fun to go with the dogs and just enjoy nature. :)

your titled read "the perfect day with your dog".
everyday i wake up is a perfect day with my dog.
I agree and was about to write the same thing. A day doesn't go by that I don't feel blessed to have all of them. They are in my thoughts all the time whether I'm with them or not.

Well my idea of a perfect day with my dogs would be in the summer time. It's 75 degrees out with a light breeze and we are at the beach. No one is around, only the boys and I. They are off leash, running on the sand, swimming in the bright blue water and chasing after the rocks I am throwing into the water (they never catch them and I purposely throw them far.) After we leave the beach we get some vanilla ice cream and they get some plain hamburgers, then we go home and cuddle while watching our favorite tv shows. We end up taking a nap. :)

Aww I love all of these! Mine would be a spring day out walking the power line. It's one of the few places we can walk off lead, and I love watching my girl exploring and checking in on me :wub:

It would be going to Carmel, CA. We'd go to the beach and it would be relatively empty except for a few nice other dogs to sniff and smell. Then we'd walk around the village, Molly would go in the pet store and they would have lamb bully sticks in stock. Then we'd drive to Monterey to Tarpy's Road house, Molly would order something nice from their doggie menu and my lunch would be perfectly cooked. Then we'd drive home, Molly would sleep in back and I'd have no traffic.

I would start by taking Titan to a place for breakfast, we have many that allow dogs. Then we'd head to a lake or river where I knew there were no gators and we'd play fetch and swim.. have a grill out with the BF and just hang out til sunset. Then we'd head to this really nice restaurant and eat yummy seafood. I'd end with a nice stroll on the beach before bedtime and maybe even star gazing on my patio.

Just had a perfect day with my dog this monday. My kids, my mom and I went to the dog beach 69 degrees. Not crowded about 50 or so other dogs to play with. Dexter looked so happy running around catching his ball and playing with the other dogs and running with kids. Went to lunch at a dog friendly restaurant. Sat on the patio in the shade. Dex had brown rice and plain chicken breast. Two other families out with their dogs at the restuarant all dogs were well behaved and didnt bother each other. One young family came and sat next to us with their 4 month old maltipoo. They were worried at first Dex might eat him, but we introduced them and Dex licked the maltipoo's face. The young family was so happy they could have their puppy on their lap next to us without our dog growling and trying to go for it. Dexter laid down and took a nap until we paid the bill. Went window shopping in Long Beach. Lots of people strolling the boardwalk. Dexter got treats at the dog shop. Then we took him home for a nap and heat pad on his hips just incase he had too much fun running around in the sand. it was so relaxing and fun.

I would also have to agree with the day hiking! The best times with my dogs are days spent on trails! Sometimes a friend and her dog also join us. We walk for hours. Stop by the farthest lake to rest and eat something while dogs splash and cool off. Late summer with the first hints of fall is the best time.

A day like the one from years ago with my four adult dogs at the beach: all of them off leash and we moved as one unit, never had to make a correction, lounging in the dunes with the dogs next to me, running and playing with them in the surf, endless fetching on a deserted beach. I never forget that day. Not every day is a perfect dog day but then the next day is.
Another one: the day when I am bringing the long anticipated new pup home and he falls asleep in his crate for the first time.

Mine would have to be at the beach in the summer. It would start off with a 2-3 mile morning jog together, followed by a lot of fetch and swimming in the lake to cool down. This won't be happening until the end of May/early June.

For now it would consist of a hike through the deserted snow covered trail a couple miles from my house, fetch through the thick snow piles to follow.

I love everybody's perfect day. Mine would be a walk in woods behind our house w/ Lucky or Thunder. Let the girls swim in our pond after walking our property w/ Chevy. After clean up take the girls and Lucky to DQ for vanilla soft serve (small). Chevy likes to visit so maybe going to my SIL w/ the girls.

My its possible perfect dog vacation fantasy is we buy an RV and drive Route 66 to the end w/ my three in the RV with us.Yeah Im crazy like that.
