After a long summer of greetings and licks,
Daddy Jim succumbed to a 24 hour bug today.

I am always waiting for the guys to ascend over the grassy dunes
and then descend to the beach below ~

but this morning was a bit slower than usual
"my Doodle Powers and all"
 could zone in on it
~ just like snapping your fingers ~

I did my familiar jaunt
up and down
the beach with ease and speed.

The surfers were learning their craft
as is the familiar scene this time of year.

such Joy in the water this time of year

but when I turned around to come back
with my faithful retrieval
Daddy Jim had returned to the car,
I knew something was up.
So Ron and I continued for a few more rounds and 
then headed back to the car 
and then home
for a snoozy day.


  1. Hey Soph! Much better today and thanks for all your good care yesterday! Darn 'bug' of some sort hit me between the eyes!! lol
    Now, let's get to the beach!!

    1. You need to ask!?

      I'm there already in my mind!

      Let's get in the car NOW!!

      Better yet ~~ teach me how to drive and I'll be your DOODLE CHAUFFEUR !!


  2. I see from his comment ^^ Daddy Jim is feeling better.
    Good work nurse Sophie :)

  3. I love that shot of Sophie on the stony shore.

  4. LOve your stones at your beach!! Great that Jim is back on track....
    You would love our puppies Sophie!! They are Amazing the Little fellars.....

  5. Sophie, you will have lots of TLC to give, lovely photos as always, the last kept for best, love your silhouette with the stones below. Take care, all of you, hugs, Jean.

  6. Poor Daddy. I know you took care of him.


  7. We hope daddy Jim feels better soon! Your photos are always so gorgeous, Sophie!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  8. I hope you enjoyed your snoozy time!

  9. Poor Daddy Jim! Glad he's feeling better, Nurse Sophie.

  10. Are you wearing him down with all that super doodle energy of yours? Nah...I didn't think so. But I do hope he's feeling much better!

  11. Well, Jim got all better and then Ron came down with the bug ~~ no surprise there ~~ he is such a bugger some times ~~ LOL!!

  12. Yay for snoozy days! I hope everyone is feeling better soon. Sending love to all three members of the household.

  13. Make sure Daddy Jim's water bowl is full of clean water. Let him curl up in his bed in the corner to sleep it off. Daddy Ron might want to give him an extra blanket to make sure he's warm and cozy. Don't lick him. He has cold germs and you don't want to get sick.

    Tell him, Sybil says: "Get well soon".

  14. Oh, so sorry about the "bug." Hope it gets shooed away quickly (like less than 24 hours) and doesn't get passed around. So glad Jim's got the two of you to take care of him!

  15. I hope daddy Jim is feeling better soon

  16. It's been an odd summer. Conditions are right for feeling under the weather.

    Hope all is well come morning light.


This 'DOODLE' is looking forward to your comment....don't be shy...all I do is SNIFF & LICK!
