In our 3rd weekly video episode, we celebrate the wonders & beauty of the beach, surf & ocean from the beautiful coastline of Oregon. Standing at the edge of the great Pacific Ocean where sea and land meet, fills us with wonder & awe. We find that visiting the Coast always has a wonderful ability to renew & revitalize. When we let ourselves truly be who we are, it’s a joy to live in the moment and let ourselves play. Being curious adventurers on a wonder quest leads to many spontaneous experiences, serendipitous moments, and oceanic inspired "wonderments".
Sometimes, the best medicine for the soul is to be stirred by awe. There are places that have the power and strength to inspire the deepest parts of the heart. For us one of these magical places is the Oregon Coast. Having been away from the coast for nearly two years, it was such a joy to return to a place where land and sea meet, and fill our hearts with wonder.
While trying to playfully film our finding wonder adventures, our enthusiastic dogs challenged our ease & playfulness. After slowing down to set our dogs and ourselves up for a win-win success blend of “wait stays” AND “playful puppy run-arounds”, we found a method for dogs and humans to HAVE FUN AT THE BEACH.
Uluru & Konane are our two incredible canine companions. They are precious, sweet and so loving. While trying to film video footage for this beachy episode, their rowdy dog enthusiasm for beach play and beach investigations, tried our patience and seemed to complicate our project. So, after some frustration, we pressed the pause button on the chaos. We slowed down enough to regain perspective of why we were at the beach, and have understanding of why dogs are so enthusiastic to be at the beach too. In slowing down, we were able to find a healthy balance of puppy play and good dog training. We found things to appreciate and all of us began having fun again. Throughout our trip, we found ways for the dogs to run and have fun being active dogs, along with times when they could work on their dog skills of watching and waiting for their parents. Thanks to working on filming our wonder journey, we actually helped all four of us find a healthy & happy balance of dog training, puppy play, and group relaxation. We love our two precious pups. Their wonder & joy inspires us to share with them as many adventures as we possibly can. We love Uluru & Konane!
Happy Pups = Happy People
Did you love Konane’s surf suit? He has soft hair that tangles and gets messy really quickly. His full body suit kept him drier, warmer & cleaner on the beach.
