I love summer ’cause Mom and Dad take me to the beach to practice my gymnastics moves.  We go to a special beach that is only for dogs without leashes.

One of the differences between the dog beach and human beach is that the dog beach has pebbles everywhere for us to jump over. Makes you quick on your feet, you know?

The beach for humans only has sand, so people don’t learn to walk very well at beaches. That’s why you see them falling down when they play. Dogs never fall down when they play.

Here I am practicing my flying leap. Pretty awesome, isn’t it?

This is  me hopping on my back feet only..

After a lot of practice, I could hop on only ONE back foot..

Eventually, I got really brave and tried hopping on only one front foot..

I can even walk on my front feet only, which is much harder than hopping. I takes a whole lot more muscles.

Because I’m not quite as good at this yet, I did cheat and use a stick for balance.

My final trick that I practiced was hopping with only my left feet! Impressive, isn’t it?

I wonder if I have a Lipizzan Stallion in my bloodline somewhere?

Whew, after that workout, I was dog tired.

I don’t think my tongue has hung out that far in ages! 

You can tell by my nice slim figure that my workouts really pay off. I feel pretty confident prancing around the beach in my toned beach body. 

I thought I’d let you know the secret for my nice figure, even at my age. No cosmetic surgery here.

Actually, I don’t even wear cosmetics, so I don’t know why I would need to have surgery to remove them anyhow.
