So, two weekends ago, we went with Barney to the Norfolk coast.  We didn’t go the entire weekend, but left on Saturday after my hockey match.  It seems kinda crazy to travel 2-1/2 hours for one night, but there was a good purpose.  Barney, along with 14 other dogs, and his dog trainer/walker, Dima, were going to filmed for a future tv programme on ITV (I’ll post when it’s airing).

On the Sunday, all the dogs arrived at Hunstanton beach to begin the process of filming.  Hunstanton is a really pretty beach with an amazing tidal system.  When we arrived, the tide was out and it was out a long way…by the time we left (many hours later) the tide had come in and the waves were strong.

The day was mixed in terms of weather (hello, England) – we had torrential rain, sun and everything in between.  Luckily, the dogs didn’t care – they were having so much fun running up and down the beach, being filmed in all their glory.  They got to play together in the waves (yes, this made me nervous in case one of the dogs got tired and dragged out too far) and ran around the beach with each other.  It was very, very cool.

Barney was exhausted by the end of the day, which is why he allowed us to take this final picture before Roy’s phone died (mine already did before we reached the beach):

Our dog, Barney, the superstar
