Poodle Day 2018

We went to lunch with our dear friends who have Frosty's niece, Audrey, the black spoo in the first picture with Frosty, and then look at the fun they had on the beach! The people there were a mixed bag--some friendly, some snobs--you know, the usual for a dog event.

When we first got there, we met the lovely blue spoo, Jasper, in pic 5, with his nice parents. We met the gorgeous silver Pinafore poodle, Tessie, who you see pictured with Maizie (last pic). They are relatives. We exchanged contact info because our dogs LOVED each other. Another dog that stood out was this huge black male spoo with a goatee. He was a real outgoing, mellow lover.

Such a fun day, and a nice escape from my mountain of school work :)

My sister and brother in law live in Del Rey Oaks, about 15 minutes from that beach. I used to have the luxury of letting my girls off leash there a couple times a week. Folks in that area are fairly affluent and go to great lengths to show case their standards. Parking for the event can of course can be a real challenge, so we park in the first available non metered spot and just walk through Carmel on our way to the beach. I think in years past they ran a shuttle from Carmel high school to the beach. You could actually just have a seat and watch it all pass you by and never make it to the beach. Great fun for poodle lovers and there are so many great shops, cafes and window shopping is also great fun. Many galleries along the way as well. And if you do make it all the way down to the surf the beach is absolutely pristine white sand not to mention you can watch golfers playing Pebble Beach. Such a gorgeous area.
I hope to make it as well.
Once you do make down to the beach though , there is quite the hill of sand to conquer to make it back to the parking lot. I've huffed and puffed up that hill several times.

jcris, would you believe I got the parking space closest to the sand last year? It was pretty awesome, since you described the parking situation very accurately (as well as the hill of sand LOL).

I sure hope you can go this year. I'll probably do the same thing as last year--lunch with friends and beach play. Let me know if you go so we can meet.

I live 2 hours up the coast on highway 1 from Carmel.
I’m putting this in my calendar for this year. Most definitely.
Mimi will meet her peeps. Awesome
