He’s got a big heart. Loyal to those closest to him and friendly to new people that he encounters, he’s an all around happy guy. An outdoorsy type, you’ll find him at the beach or exploring a trail. His hair is a little mussed. He might even have sand between his toes. Or….stuck to his nose and…tongue?
Introducing the perfect guy…your new friend: the beach dog.
From the party shores of Boracay to the distant, nearly uninhabited islands that make up the Philippines, almost every beach has got its resident dog. And this is why they are awesome:
1) They have buddies.
I’ve never been to a beach that has just one dog. Often times they’re in pairs, running in the sand, tumbling in the water, or just basking in the sun. And they’re always happy to add human friends to their posse. Fetch Buddy? Surf Buddy? Drinking Buddy? Game on!
2) They know how to work those puppy dog eyes.
3) They can’t resist the urge to come up and say hi.
4) They are chill.
5) They are the master of their domains.
Here is another mountain dog. Saber is his name. You can read his story here. He’s only two feet tall, but this is HIS mountain. Make no mistake about that. Just like the beach dog, the mountain dog knows his area inside and out, and he’s happy to show you around, or just sit and enjoy the view of his empire.
6) They get to see sunsets like this.
Every day of their lives.
I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind spending more time with one of these perfect guys!
