The Salty Dogs Are Back!

Hey guys, we're finally back from the long trip! We are soooper doooper exhausted but we had a pawsome time. We went to Cherating which was 6 hours away from where we live & we stayed at Ruby's Resort. I tell ya, that place is sooo kewl & Ruby and her staff were sooo friendly & welcoming. They loved us doggies too! We went with a big group of people and doggies & we all stayed there for 3 days & 2 nights. Okay, let's not blab too much & get on with the peektures. Now bear me guys, this post is gonna be very looooong...

This was our cottage. Actually it's a big yellow cottage but it was divided into two so our room was kinda small but really cozy. See, we posed prettily!

Before I show you guys the inside of our room, let me be your guide dog to show you a few places around in & outside Ruby's Resort.

This was our loverly garden which had alot of interesting smells...

This is the walk way just outside all of our cottages where you can do alot of running or walking. There were also alot of coffee tables & chairs outside for the hoomans to have their coffee or their meals...

This is the mini playhouse for little kiddies. I treat it as my agility course...

This is the cute tree house where we can chill & look out for notty culprits at night. Hee!

Then this is the huge piece of land where you can do alot of chasing with other doggies...

And this piece of sandy ground is good for...

Burying tennis balls...

Haha!

But best of all, this whole place is good for playing fetch!

Okay, now I show you our room. We kept on going on the bed with our sandy feet till the bed was filled with sand. My mommy kept on complaining about it...
Now, I introduce to you guys, the BEACH!!!
Hey you, like my new bikini panties? Actually it was my mommy's but she couldn't fit into it. Harhar!
Woah, the waves were kinda strong & we had a difficult time trying to go deeper. The waves kept drowning us & pushing us out to the shore all the time!

This is the first time we've ever been to the beach & we thought the water tasted really salty. And it burned our eyes too!

Here's our hooman M ready to throw the ball...

Ha! I got it!

Later, I found a twig to chew on. It was quite tasty!
Then I looked gorgeous for the camera...

Faith decided to stay out of the water after a while coz she found it too cold. She'd prefer basking in the sun anytime!

In the evening, while all hoomans & doggies were waiting for the BBQ pits to get hot so that they could have their din dins, mommy & I decided to have a little stroll in the beach.

Then we found this tire tied to a branch. I don't know what it was for but I could jump through it. Mommy was impressed that she made me do it many times. Ugh!

We had barbecued lamb with rice for din dins. My hooman M brought raw lamb meat which was not marinated & it was for doggies only. She didn't allow us to have too much of the hooman ones coz they were marinated & are too salty. I mean, how much salt can we have? We just drank one gallon of salt water earlier on. BOL!

After that, I decided to stand on top of the tree house to guard. I'm a natural at this if you ask me...
Next morning, we were fresh & ready to go to the beach again!

But 1st, we had to have some good stretching. Here's me & Chloe playing bitey face. It's good to exercise the jaw muscles...

To stretch my aching legs & limbs, I walked up & down the tree house stairs.

Then I decided to join Jiro & Ayako's hoomans for coffee.

And again I looked gorgeous for the camera...

And then off we went to the beach!

Here we go again. Wheeeeee!!! This is so fun! Guys, sorry for the misty peektures. Silly mommy forgot to warm up the camera after leaving it in the air conditioned room for a very long time.

We are sooo enjoying ourselves!

Ahhhh... Sun bathing... Feels kinda good.

After the fun, we had to take our baths. That really spoiled our day!

As we were sleeping, we smelled something deeleecious out on the patio. This was what we saw. Yummerz! Mommy ordered lunch & guess who are those nuggets for? Who else. Hehehe!

On our last dinner at Ruby's, all the hoomans wanted to go out & have din dins somewhere else with their doggies but our mommy & hooman M decided to stay & order crabs from somewhere else instead. My hooman M ordered about 4 kgs of it & it cost a bomb! Later on, our hoomans found out that they ordered a little bit too much. We are always there on their sides anytime if they needed help... Hee!

When the others came back, I decided to join these two's conversation. I wonder what they were laughing about?
Late at night, we sat on the tree house with mommy. We were always on time to do some guarding...

We are the fierce guard dogs. We did manage to see a few things lurking in the dark. Ruby said that there are wild boars, hunters & even spirits in the middle of the night. Faith saw a few already in the jungle even my hoomans heard weird noises behind the cottages too. It was sooo kewl & we aren't scared of them!

The 3rd & final day at Ruby's also meant, "No more beach!" becoz we just had our baths the day before. But unfortunately...
Oh well, served our hoomans right! So what does this mean guys? Hoomans should never bathe their dogs when it comes to holiday & beach. Agree? By the way, like my pink top? Hehehe...

Mommy dragged us out of the beach after that & we all had a walk in a big secluded empty land just opposite Ruby's Resort. The land is never ending I tell ya!

We can run around like wild doggies!

Later on, we had our 2nd baths, packed up, had our lunch & then left Ruby's Resort. We didn't manage to take a group picture coz the others left at different times & we were the 2nd last to leave. We miss that place already & wish we didn't have to go off so early. I think this is the best holiday we've ever had & we can never ever ever ever in a 100 years forget it becoz we can still feel it in our bones. Oh yeah...

Ruby, we will be back soon. You can bet on that!

Sparky said...

Amber-Mae!

This certainly was a long post, but it was well worth reading! You all had a BLAST!

So you treats little kiddie playgrounds as agility courses, too? I like to go to the playgrounds around my house and go through the slides and up and down the stairs... It's super fun!

I bet you make a great night guard, Amber-Mae. That tree house looks really nice, you must have enjoyed being up there and watching for all the naughty culprits!

And wow, I still can't believe you've never been to the beach before... Isn't it GRRRREAT?! All that sand! All that water! All that sun! Man, it's like heaven! I see you all really enjoyed being at the beach. The waves there are huge, it's no wonder you had some difficulty swimming! But I think the waves are fun to play in. I always try to drink the salt water when I get thirsty, but it tastes disgusto! But I still drink it anyways, hee hee.

You sure showed your humans by getting all sandy and salty again after your bath! I bet it was fun to get dirty again. Oh, and I think your pink top looks gorgeous on you!

I LOVE all the pictures in this post... The last one though is just wonderful! Your smile shows all the fun you had. I bet you can't wait to go back! And when you do go back, can you take me with you?

Sparky
