There's no better way to end a month of temperamental weather than a day at the beach and some much needed Cooper playtime.
For a change of pace from his weekday Runyon Canyon walks, we decided to jump in the car and drive to Huntington Dog Beach and a have a morning of chasing balls, frisbees and even surfers along the sandy shore.

Chasing frisbees at Huntington Dog Beach
More and more his true water retriever credentials are kicking in and he was desperate to be in the ocean, rather than simply chasing balls up and down the shore.

Luckily Spring Break hasn't kicked in for everyone, so the beach whilst busy, wasn't as packed as I'm sure it'll be in the coming weeks.
Not that Cooper noticed his fellow beach users, he only had eyes for his tennis balls and toys.
As ever, a morning at the beach means a very satisfied and tired pup, so it's win-win all around.
Long may the good weather last...
