Beach Poodle

Beach Poodle | Pacific Beach, WA | 2013

Poodles maintain dignity even after frolicking in surf or rolling in fish stink. They generally abide in grace, although they can look like fools while the pursuing gulls or pelicans. Like most animals, poodles offer lessons in maintaining character and presence under widely varying conditions — from a walk through the neighborhood to frantically chasing a windblown paper cup down a mile of foamy beach.
