    Red face Beach Day Essentials!

    This may be too early for most of you, but for us in LA, it's warm enough to go to the beach already.

    We're taking Til to a doggie friendly beach next week. I always make Til wear a life jacket near water - on the boat, pools, beachs, etc. but last time we were there we saw a few bullies, none of which had life jackets!

    Do you make your bulldog wear a life jacket near water? If not, aren't you worried that they can't swim and may fall in?

    Maybe I'm just overly cautious!

    Our other beach essentials for Til are plenty of water and baby sunscreen (she is all white and sunburns very easily).

    What else do you bring to the beach?

    I would always always put the life jacket on, anywhere near water. I'm sure you're bringing treats heehee... and don't forget some bags for poop! lol ....AND because I'm the biggest chicken ever, I also have benadryl on me all the time... in case he were to get bit by something, and starts to have a reaction. The benadryl would give me "some" time even if just a little to get him to the ER.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    I've never taken my dogs to the beach… but I would say if they get adventurous in the water then get the life jacket. I also agree w/ @TyTysmom… we NEVER leave the house w/out benadryl… Lol

    We live 15 minutes from the beach here in Florida. I have taken Vegas once in 6 years. He kept drinking the salt water, although I took fresh, and we had to leave within 15 minutes. When we got home he got the squirts for the rest of the night and the whole next day from the salt water. So Vegas has never been again. I would certainly use a life jacket if you are going. We went on a very warm but overcast day so I did not take sunscreen.

    That is such a good idea just to keep in my purse! I never thought of that. Matilda ate a bee once and her blew up in seconds - I FREAKED out! That's a great idea to have on hand!

    I am just so afraid they will overheat. Do you think if I keep them wet, they will be ok??

    me too... which is why I have never taken them -- too paranoid about it. I think if we go now with them, it would be OK... mid-low 60's ??
