Not Surf Dogs But…

Last Sunday. After-lunch surfing.

“Have fun, Scott.”

Lupikona were not able to become surf dogs. However, they became the dogs waiting for their owner on the beach while he is surfing.

Scott is back!

Kona wanted to greet him at the edge of surf too. But she couldn’t get any closer because she is afraid of waves. So…

she greeted Scott with a play bow while Lupita and Scott were having a conversation.

We enjoyed a good burger.

Lupita’s 6th Anniversary

6 years ago today Lupita joined our family.

She has always been there for us all six years.

We just thank God that we met her.

I hope we will be together like this forever.

Morning at the Beach House


Lupikona started their morning by sunbathing on the deck.

I found cherry blossoms blooming here too.

It’s nice and warm. It’s a perfect day at the beach.

After the Rain Stopped

We came to the beach after the rain stopped.

Brrr, It’s cold here.

We lit a fire for the first time this season.


A Rainy Morning

Lupita played tug-of-war with Scott. She had a fun morning even though it rained.

Walking in the Drizzle

It was drizzling all day today.

Lupita doesn’t like getting wet. When she walked, she kept close to the wall.

The Canada goldenrod is very tall.

Oh? Did Kona grow taller? She looks much bigger then Lupita. Actually Lupita is about 2kg heavier than Kona though.

Before the Weather Turns Bad

There are two typhoons approaching.

We went for a walk before the weather turns bad.

After the long walk…

the two dogs looked pleased.

Get Ready for Winter

It was chilly yesterday. I spread out a blanket on Lupikona’s bed and put the floor heater on.

Talking to the Dogs

What is Scott saying to Lupikona?

Thinking Dog

What is Kona thinking about with her arms crossed?

In the Field

We went to the big field. While Kona took a quick nap, Lupita stood guard.

Cherry Blossoms in October

There is a cherry tree at the riverbank.

When we looked up at it…

the cherry blossoms are blooming!

The cherry tree must have been confused by the unseasonably hot weather in October. The blossom buds didn’t fall after the typhoon yesterday and are still pretty bloom even though it’s the wrong season.

How to Work Off Frustration

We can’t let Kona run freely on the beach yet.

She just looked wistfully at Lupita running around freely.

Wishing to run around but unable to…

Kona looked so frustrated.

She knew how to work off her frustration. Check out this video.

Dig, dig, dig! She put her heart and soul into her digging.

See? She felt happy and put a smile back on her face!

Cloudy, Later, Rainbow

It was bright and sunny in the morning. But…

a layer of thick clouds appeared in the afternoon.

Scott ran and played a lot together with Lupikona.

Lupita and…


love Scott.

Look! There is a rainbow.

We had a good day today too.

Fine Autumn Beach

Walking on the beach makes…

Lupikona happy.



We spent the fine autumn day relaxing at the beach as a family.
