Today, we took our dogs, Chiquita and Peanut, to the leash-free section of Huntington Beach known as Dog Beach. It's a wonderful place where dogs can let loose, meet other dogs, and romp around in the surf. My two dogs are not fond of the ocean, so they spent their time mostly meeting-and-greeting other dogs. Certain breeds take to the water with reckless abandon and enthusiasm. I had fun watching this golden retriever repeatedly diving into the surf and swimming to fetch the piece of lumber its owner was tossing.
