The Adventures of Mouse: Life’s a beach

Although what’s wrong with being a bitch I fail to see….

Speaking as a doggo, of course. But Mum says this is more polite, and due to the nature of this post, appropriate. Oh well, in that case. The things I let the Staff get away with. (Gosh, his Lordship can be snarky at times – Mum)

Anyway, onwards. This place has a jolly fine beach. Doggos are permitted year round, off-leash before 8am and after 4pm, leashed the rest of the time. Mum says if I want another walk later this afternoon, we might arrange it to be after 4pm so I can Run. This is pretty generous of her, considering how, um, distressed, she was when I found a large dead fish head to roll in this morning. She pounced before I’d had time to do more than rub one cheek on it, but it was clear that I wasn’t going to be allowed to apply that particular eau de pong

Anyway, for the interested, here’s the view at Kinka Beach. Off to the left somewhere is Great Keppel Island. Bear in mind this is early winter, and although it’s a well-known holiday destination and the snow-birds are here, we had the place to ourselves…


I don’t suppose there will be much to report today. Now that the Staff are no longer rabid pie-hunters and Mum has to watch her intake a bit, things are much less interesting on the begging-for-a-taste front. Groceries are being bought later, I expect I’ll get a bit of cheese, but for now, I’ll concentrate on topping up the snooze-tank.

Till the next time,

  1. Time to chill, Mouse. And for the Staff to put their feet up a bit. That beach looks very beautiful – enjoy your gallop 🙂 xx

    I can just picture you doing zoomies on the beach. 💜 As for the eau du pew, don’t forget that you have roommates and they might not enjoy the same…um…er…odoriferitude that you do, sweet Mouse.😜

      Hi again, Miss Marty. So…. we aren’t going to mention Dad’s socks, then? Or Mum’s ‘equally stinky but in a different way’ handcream? Where’s the consideration for Moi? Seriously, I was very good and came away as soon as she noticed!

    Looks like a peaceful place to be – but the comment you made to Jill, shows that “not all’s quiet on the western front” with them darn dive bombings beasties…

    • katechiconi says:

      Hello again! Up until about 4-4.30pm it’s paradise. And then the beasties come out to play and any exposed flesh is fair game. Trouble is, that’s when the doggos are allowed off leash and the people retreat to safety!

  4. What a glorious place to be and so isolated as well … just my idea of fun 🤩
    As mum must have told you we are in lockdown again for 7 days 🤦‍♀️ Here’s hoping it will make a difference 😳
    Have a zoomie good time Mouse Boy 🤗

  5. Oooh! That beach looks lovely! Lots of room there to zoom around but no playmates and no humans to charm so not quite perfect. Probably best to snooze all day until you can go and have your run so you’ll have loads of energy! R & O

    • katechiconi says:

      Hello again! I like a bit of leg room in a beach with not too many other people to watch out for when I’m zooming. And other dogs just misunderstand my mission and want to play… We tried a ‘new’ dog park today but it was so new it hadn’t been finished yet and the fence wasn’t complete. Maybe next time, eh? Off home again tomorrow, I’ve had enough of fresh fields and pastures new, I want my own backyard race track.

  6. Tide is -relatively- high on Kinka Beach at least. But sandflies… nooooo 😨

    • katechiconi says:

      Hi Aunty Dale, yes indeed, there were plenty of those, and Mum was slapping at her legs like a good ‘un. I’ll settle for beach zoomies at home, where there’s no time restrictions. Looking forward to showing Deez some great zooming beaches!

    Have a great vacation all ! Lovely beach, you can’t find such beaches over here.

    • katechiconi says:

      No, we’re very lucky to have such big, beautiful, empty beaches.

      • gwenniesgardenworld says:

        In Belgium we have 90 kilometers (56 miles) of beaches and we have about 12 million people……so you have an idea of how our beaches look. As we live near Holland we always go there it is much less crowded and for us a lot less closer than the Belgian beaches.

      • katechiconi says:

        That sounds extremely, um, busy! We have 34,000km of coastline (not all beaches, of course) and 25.5 million people, so we have room to spare.

    You are a lucky boy and get lots of holidays. Mum says they used to have a dog before us – although we can’t imagine a ‘before us’ – who found a dead fish down by the reservoir and rolled in it. She got covered in scales, stank horribly and it took ages to get rid to the pong. We thought it sounded rather fun.
    Enjoy your beach.
    Flo & Stan 🐾

    • katechiconi says:

      Hi Flo and Stan! I think Mum would say she had a lucky escape. The fish wasn’t really stinky at all, she was standing right by it and didn’t notice till I started doing ‘strange’ things. Strange to her, maybe, but to me it seems perfectly natural! Anyway, bit of a lost opportunity, but it appears I must stick to my extremely minimal personal aroma rather than lash out on something a bit more emphatic!

    Boomer would have been right there with you…forget the beach, look for the DEAD and ROLL!
