West Wittering

To celebrate my recent blogoversary, Molly the Irish Terrier and I went for an exciting day trip to West Wittering in West Sussex. The beach is HUGE and there is also a nature reserve nearby. It was a lovely sunny day but it was really cold. Far too cold to go anywhere NEAR the sea, let alone in it. There were lots of other dogs there but they were all nice and friendly, not like me.

I found a green ball that someone had left behind and set to work destroying it while J1 had a freezing cold coca cola and J2 and T had a nice cup of tea and a sit down. Estimated time for me to puncture and rip holes out of it and then cry* like a baby? A mere 3 minutes.

[*I would like to point out that I wasn't crying girly tears; Oh no, they were manly tears of frustration!]

Happy Blogaversary Pal. Hope you and Molly had a nice romp on the beach.


Agatha and Archie said...

Well of course we know why you were crying.....3 minutes?? Come on man get to it!!!! Entirely too long( and ESPECIALLY for you)although perhaps the cold had something to do with it......We think everyone should have had hot tea too....Love and kisses A+A

Ferndoggle said...

I've never been to the beach...but Mom keeps promising me I'll get to make a trip one of these days.

Looks like you had fun Jax. I'm jealous of your ball!


Katherine and Pippa said...

Er, so was that a good day or not?


William Tell said...

Maybe the J's can get you another green ball with a little more endurance?

Looks like a fabulous way to celebrate!

Happy blogoversary, Jackson! We're glad you could spend the day with Molly! Your beach looks cold and deserted!
Will you be taking the deflated green ball home with you?

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Happy Blogoversary, Jackson.

I was guessing that you have puncture the ball within 10 seconds. I can't believe that you actually took 3 long minutes to achieve it! I think you should work toward hitting the Guinness World Records as the most destructive dog.


Joe Stains said...

I sometimes have manly tears also, especially when Tanner farts.

Lorenza said...

Happy Anniversary!
I have been trying to kill a ball that I've had for almost a year. Would you please give me some lessons??
Kisses and hugs

Simba said...

Miles and miles of beach to run on there. Looks like great fun.

Hi Jackson

We have never been to West Wittering, it looks the sort of place we need to put on our "Must go to" list.

Great to see you had a lovely day out with your friend Molly.

Huskee Boy said...

Oh wow... there's miles and miles of sand for you to roll in and leave your paw-prints on!

Cassidy said...

Amber-Mae said...

You are not a friendly dog? I don't believe you...I'm sure you are. Wow, you sure took some time to burst that ball. Chloe takes about 30 sec to a minute to burst one.

Love licks,

Sophie Brador said...

Well, of course they were manly tears. I would expect nothing less from a manly man dog like you.


Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Hey J! We wanted to thank you for the suggestion to bake some of the special dog food. Mom sliced up a whole can and baked it and Roxie LOVES her new treats! And Mom doesn't worry about undermining the expensive diet. You are right though, they give the whole house a special aroma ... Mom says stink, we say smell yummy! We were actually hanging around in the kitchen sniffing the air and we never do that!

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Katie said...

Hi Jackson,

Good show on destroying the toy. Sam and I destroyed 2 tennis balls today in record time, as well.

Karen Jo said...

Happy Blogoversary, Jackson. It looks like you had a wonderful outing. You did a good job on destroying that ball.

Noah the Airedale said...

Great pics J, we especially like the first one, lone dog on a beach.
It sure is a huge beach.
Have a great weekend.

Hugs and tail wags

Lenny said...

Hi Jackson,
I'm sure your manly tears were very dignified. I'm glad you got to celebrate your blogaversary! Congrats!

Your friend, Lenny

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Hey Jackson! What a lovely picture of you rambling along that beach...and your grass is still green!! We don't have grass right now...we're pretty buried in snow and it's comin down hard right now! We've been out playin' and now we're soak and wet...mmmmm wet dog parfume!!

Manly tears, huh...Babystan doesn't have manly tears...he sobs like a little's pitiful large male Dale like him. Good work on the ball killin'!

cookie said...

That beach looks super fun!!
You are a lucky pooch to go to the beach.

Have a great day

Marvin said...

Happy Blog Anniversary, though I think I wished you this before, I still have those darn furry boots in my mind, Dear Lord they were a fright!

West Wittering, I think this would be a place for my Jeannie to visit, she witters all the time.

love and licks, Marv xxxx

Hammer said...

Hi Jackson
Even tho it was cold the beach area looks like a nice place to walk. I notice you're kept on a lead like me, for our protection. I'm real ruff with toys too, specially the squeaky ones. Balls and sticks don't interest me as much.
Love from Hammer

Stanley said...

Jackson, Buddy!

I know what you mean about the manly tears of frustration. Being the master of disaster that you are, I imagine this happens fairly frequently.

Looks like a great outing. Wish I could join you sometime.

Goober love & smooches,
