Jan has been drawing dogs for his Carmel-by-the-Sea Dogs Notebook and needed more photographs so we went to romp with the dogs for a day. It is always a good time. We parked on Junipero, right across from Bruno’s Market and saw this lovely dog, still wet and looking tired. We asked if he had just been to the beach, yes, he had.
Prissy little dogs are everywhere. They know they are cute.
These three little fellows were being walked together.
Then it was off to the beach. We circled around twice at the foot of Ocean Ave. and found a parking spot. One of the first dogs we saw was this proud standard black poodle.
This was the first time to the beach for this exotic dog with pointy ears.
These two little white dogs, one on a leash and the other free got to know each other with doggie introductions, you sniff me and then I’ll sniff you.
This guy was playing fetch and having a good time, he will probably be as worn out as the golden retriever soon.
After a long walk south on the beach we walked up one of the flights of stairs to the Scenic Road walkway and took it back to Ocean Avenue and our car. On the way, we met this cute little guy who had just had a haircut.
Back on Ocean Avenue and the shopping area, we saw lots more dogs.
The well-dressed dog wears a bow tie or a flower on their collar.
This white poodle wears dog shoes so his feet won’t get dirty. We wondered if he is allowed to sit on the sidewalk like dogs do.
It could be said this smooshed-in face is only a face a mother could love. She has a hot pink leash and flower to match. Don’t you think she should have matching polish on those big toenails?
That is just a few of the dogs we saw that day. It is always a fun dog day in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
