Camera Critters--A Dog's Life

Isla is a shelter dog who was adopted by a resident of Stone Island, Mazatlán, México. She spends her day roaming the beach, visiting residents and sunbathing tourists until her owner comes to collect her and take her home. When she was in the shelter my husband who volunteers there often walked her. When we recently went to the beach to relax, sunbathe and eat good food, Isla recognized him and spent the day with us. A dog's life!! For more Camera Critters photos, click here.

I would not want to be in a shelter, but it sounds like Isla has an awesome life now.

I think I'd be a good beach bum!

lavenderlady said...

it doesn't surprise me at all that she recognized your husband. They are pretty smart little critters. Yes, Kate, this surgery is suppose to be the last of what we have to do for my shoulder. the nerves have regenerated as much as they are going to...so next step!

Isla looks pretty comfy under the chair. How delightful that must have been to renew acquaintences and spend theday together.
