Homer at the Beach

Remember in my last blog that I showed you some pictures of me and my new friends at Hoek van Holland beach. Well, the next day I went back there and had a great time with just me and my humans. Take a look at my adventures.

Here I am on the beach. My humans have set me two important missions.

First, I have to go and locate the ‘Ball of Tennis’...

Here I go! Mission Impossible I.

After fighting off three sharks and two crocodiles (honestly), I finally emerged with the ‘Ball of Tennis’.

Here I am emerging from the waves like James Bond.

Mission Impossible I “accomplished”!

Next, my humans assigned me to retrieve the ‘Super Spade Handle’.

Whoopee! No problem for Homer Bond (or am I still Homer Skywalker? I get so confused.)

Where the heck did it go?

Got it!

Now to return it to the mighty humans.

Better dry-off first!

OK, what’s next?

Unfortunately, instead of Mission Impossible III, Missus insisted that I posed for some nice photos.

My windswept look.

I thought that this was the perfect backdrop for my sphinx pose...

...and then to ‘Walk like an Egyptian’.

Finally, Missus had me posing in her summer hat. Tsk!

After my photoshoot, we went off and had some more fun.

This is Dad bending down to pick up my toys.

‘Oh my dog, Dad. Did you have to do that right in my face?’

[Note from Dad: No treats for Homer!]

For more of my adventures playing ‘fetch’ in the sea, check out the video below.

See ya!

Hi Homer! It was very nice to see you playing and retrieving at the beach. I could hardly tell you and James Bond apart, and you are excellent at walking like an Egyptian. But that hat...well, I'm sure it looks very good on your mom.

See ya!

But with you I have to lay down in the ground, laughing like a crazy dog, Carla this time even drooled herself laughing! That pic of Homer Bond coming out of the water... the "Phut" pic!!!! I can't stop laughing!!! See... I'm writting this with my very own paws, 'cause Carla and John can't do it!

Chef said...

Homer, you're such a funnydog! You really have us rolling. I don't think I'll ever fetch another tennis ball without thinking of it as a Ball of Tennis. You're pretty cheeky around your Papa, eh? Tsk. Tsk. He wasn't too pleased with you. Ha ha. But it was SO funny, tell him ...

Oh, we all just love that Sphinx shot!!! Poor Dad - how embarrassing.

Woos, the OP Pack

Sue said...

Super cute pictures Homer! Personally, I think you are much better looking than James Bond! I loved the hat picture - not many pups could pull that off.

Cheers all the way from Texas, USA.
My name is Bond! Homer Bond!
This post made my whole family rolled on floor laughing, we truly enjoy your sportmanship, pawsome missions and pleasant sense of humor!

We made our moms so happy on pet mom's day, didn't we?

Oh Homer! That is one fantabulous beach outing! I am so jealous! You are very brave too to hit the waves, I am a little wary of them! Awesome! Love, Dino
