Watery Wednesday

Not taken recently but on a trip to the beach a while back we watched as this dog was getting his exercise by collecting driftwood and bringing it back to shore. By the time we decided to move on he had collected quite a pile of wood for his owners who were stacking it up on the shore.

Thank you 2sweetnsaxy for hosting Watery Wednesday, a great meme for our mid week fun. You can visit by clicking right here.


  1. That's a golden retriever. Awesome shot.

  2. What a coincidence! I took a shot of a dog fetching his ball from the ocean! Aren't they so cute?

  3. I love the way the water looks in that photo.

  4. aww, that's a gorgeous shot! i wish my dog could swim like that.:P

  5. Dogs know how to have a good time.

  6. Lovely picture and you helped to build the whole scene. Can just imagine it - and how happy both dog and owner must have been! A x

  7. How fun that the dog was collecting wood. Lovely pic.

  8. Denise, what a fun post! I love golden retrievers...our pup is just a little over a year old now. I can see him totally getting into doing something like this guy! Just adorable! :)

  9. Haha I was planning to post a photo of a dog that I met in the beach but I changed my mind perhaps I shall post it next week!


  10. You were in the right place at the right time. Great photograph! It was good to know the story behind the picture too.

  11. How lovely! I think he is in the process of building his own kennel ;)

    I also loved the God/Dog video on the previous post, I adore dogs!

  12. That's a great shot, but why were they sending the dog out to collect the wood? I could understand collecting trash to get it out of the water, but why the wood... I wonder! hehehe

  13. Grandpa, they certainly are :)

    Janie, he certainly is :)

    Regina, thank you :)

    J Bar, isn't he though? :)

    Sunny, thank you :)

    Ebie, Tabib also has a dog in the water. I shall be over shortly to look at yours :)

    Tricia, me too :)

    Tabib, he certainly was :)

    Luna Miranda, thank you. Maybe your dog will surprise you :)

    Martha Z, they certainly do :)

    Strawberry Jam Anne, pure joy from what I saw :)

    Tammie Lee, he was focused on getting that wood :)

    Marju, yes indeed :)

    Elaine, how wonderful that you have a golden. This swimming and retrieving seems to be in their blood :)

    Al, I hope you will :)

    Vita Stunda, thank you :)

    Linda, so true! That's why I like to take my camera everywhere I go. You just never know :)

    Kazu, thank you :)

    Sandy, I am glad and thank you :)

    ShySongbird, it certainly looked like it :)

    Tricia, I asked the owners about that. They lived close by and they said ever since they started walking him on the beach, he would run into the water, start swimming and at the same time bring driftwood back from day one :)

    Thank you all very much for dropping by and leaving a comment. I always enjoy reading them.

  14. Kewl watery photo! My lab Molly loves to fetch and swim too ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  15. What a great shot! He looks so determined, doesn't he? Wish we could train Kate to be useful like that!

  16. What a great story, geesh, I can't even get our dog to FETCH one stick and bring it to me on land!

    Great post Denise!

  18. they just love the water, don't they.

  20. Excellent photo Denise, the dog looks like its having a blast.

    Have a great day
