My whole family is excited about a summer vacation on a very magnificent white sand island. It was well-planned and organized.

The most awaited day had come. We traveled far from home.

When we reached the island, Mom called me and said, “Darling, run. Take a walk. Jump. Swim. Slide. Do what you want. If you need to roll, you roll and play chase on the beach.” Her words make me wonder, “Is mom okay? Am I free today? Will mom not look after me?”

While enjoying the breeze I whisper to myself, “Oh! Summer feels so good. And it is nice to watch the sunset and the sea.” And as I look at the sea the wave seemed to be waving and saying, “Come! Embrace me. And I’ll take care of you.”

I go to Mom and wiggle my tail but she ignores me. I go to Dad but he also ignores me. So I run, swim and play alone and it makes me feel so happy.

I don’t want to end this summer with sad memories.

    Lotchie, I love your story so much! So upbeat, that it brought happiness to my morning! I wish I was there with this family enjoying all that the beach offers! You captured this so well! Great twist at the end with the pup!

    What an uplifting and delightful story, Lotchie, full of the joys of Summer. I love the little twist at the end when the puppy is revealed. Lovely writing!

    Such a sweet tale, Lotchie. My dogs wouldn’t let me lie in the sand for the day. I’d have real sand sandwiches, gritty soda and would probably end up buried alive as one of them really likes to dig. It makes me a little sad that his mom and dad ignore him, but hope he enjoyed the day at the beach regardless. Well done.

    I absolutely loved your description of a fantastic summer day on the beach from the point of view of a much loved pet. I savoured the joy and excitement. I was left hoping that nothing was wrong with Mom or Dad to mar this pet’s future. A lovely story, Lotchie! 😊
