Penelope’s Plum Island Adventure

City Dog to Beach Dog

I absolutely LOVE it when a client says, “Yes, we’re up for an adventure!”

That was Penelope, the Great Pyranees, and her mom this past week.  This adorable duo lives in Worcester, and mom commutes to a hospital in Boston for work.  Penelope does enjoy full days romping and playing with other pups at doggie daycare.  They decided on a sunrise beach session at Plum Island.  When I asked, “is that too far or too early for you?”.  Mom’s reply, “Penelope is up at 4:00 AM every morning.”  Let’s do it!!!

They had about an hour and a half drive from Worcester to Plum Island.  My drive was 30 minutes so I did get an extra hour of sleep haha!  One might think I get up, put on clothes, and hop in the car right away.  I actually need to slowly wake up and have at least 2 cups of coffee before hitting the road!  

We met at 6:00 AM – sunrise was scheduled for 6:25.  Penelope was so excited!  We had the beach to ourselves.  She was a bit “unsure” about the water and the waves.  We didn’t have too much beach, as the tide was high, but it was perfect for Penelope.  I absolutely love the sand early in the morning and the first prints being “paw prints”.

We did some walking on the beach, and there is a beautiful rocky area that has lovely views in several directions.  I discovered that Penelope loves to dance for treats!  Can you believe she’s only 70 lbs? So much FLUFF!!!

One of Penelope’s big highlights of the morning was finding a piece of driftwood. Mom brought the driftwood home as a memory of Penelope’s beach adventure!

By the smiles on Penelope’s face, I do think she had an amazing beach adventure!  Mom’s text later that day:  “Penelope is PASSED OUT!”  Modeling is hard work- haha!  I love these peaceful mornings at sunrise with pups on the beach.
