Everyone likes going to the beach on a hot, sunny summer day. Right? Well, I hope you do.
One of my favorite beach cities to go to is Santa Barbara, CA. If you’ve ever been to Santa Barbara, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The weather, beach, environment, vibes, atmosphere, food, and babes are to die for. I highly recommend heading to the Santa Barbara coast line when you have some free time or when you have a weekend to get away.
The only thing better than going to the Santa Barbara beach with friends and family is bringing along your precious Yorkshire dogs. My girlfriend has two, so it was even better. There is no better feeling than having your special Yorkshire dogs with you as you run along the beach. For some reason, seeing Yorkshire dogs is a rare sight in Santa Barbara; which means everyone wanted to come up and pet. I can understand why, many of the people in Santa Barbara either have smaller dogs or none.
It was quite a treat running along the beach with my girlfriends’ two Yorkshires, having the water splash us and sun beat down. From everything I saw and experienced, both the Yorkshires loved the beach. The warm, light brown sand felt amazing to run in. Santa Barbara beaches are also very large and wide- which means there is plenty of space to run and play with. Back home, there is never enough “comfy” room as the beach.
I know both my Yorkshires very well, and seeing them so excited when they saw the beach was quite an experience. It’s not every day I see my two dogs jumping up and down with excitement. Being on the beach with the Yorkshires was something I will never forget. The energy was addictive.
It was as obvious as it gets. When we took the Yorkshires back home, I noticed the drastic difference in behavior and energy they were excreting. If you’re like me, you know dog’s so well that small changes in location can change the way they act.
It’s almost like when you first bring a young child into a candy or toy store for the first time. You will notice the change in attitude and character they have. Every situation and scenario is different, but the common thread is observing the behavioral patterns.
Not only was taking a small, weekend getaway trip to the beach relaxing and refreshing; but the two Yorkshires benefited just as much from it. If you get tired of running in the daily rut of work, and need something or someway to take a step back and breath-take a trip down Santa Barbara for the weekend.
You won’t regret it, trust me. I would know.
