This afternoon we went to resident access 3 on West Gulf Drive. The sun was out and the temperature had warmed a little to 62, which was nice compared to the 41 degrees and cold wind last night. It actually felt pretty warm on the beach.
There were some shells in this area and several people were searching as they walked along. I'm sure there were a lot of nice small ones, but I only picked up 3 small ones, because I didn't walk very far or look too closely.
The reason I didn't spend too much time walking:
Today was the trial to see how Puffin would take to his new carrier pack. He actually seemed to like it, so I didn't want to keep him in it too long the first time. It was sure easier to take pictures with both hands, rather than holding him with one arm and the camera in the other hand. He was constantly wiggling when I was holding him, in the pack he didn't do that. I think maybe he felt a little more secure, plus it was probably more comfortable than when I had a death grip on him to keep from dropping him.
Several of you have asked what kind of dog my Puffin is. He is a Lhasa Apso, weighs 5 lbs and will be 4 months old on Friday. Potty training is going very well, handling his little spit fire temper and getting him to understand he isn't the boss, not so good. But, we're working on that. He lives for his treats, so that makes it all a little easier.
When we got back home, he was happy to run and play with his toys. After he wore out, he took a little break by laying on the bird's cage covers.
He and Lexus spent a little bonding time together. Lexus was quite happy to stay in his carrier and talk to Puffin. I don't think he understood why he got no answer when he kept saying, 'Hello'.
