The last bits of snow from our long winter’s blizzard have finally melted away. Isn’t it great to take our pets on outings again after spending months cooped up inside?

This happy bunch of Australian dogs (and one cat) might inspire your next romp. Robert Dollwet of Malibu Dog Training takes groups of obedience training graduates on outings to pet-friendly parks, and this time they went to the beach! Watch these playful animals doggie paddle in the waves, dig through soft sand, and mug for the fish eye lens.

Skateboarding cat Didja, already a YouTube star, is an odd and surprising addition to the mix. Everyone knows cats hate water, and in his video description, Robert stresses not to make your own feline try to swim. Didja showed an interest in water when she was younger, however, so she’s allowed to come along on beach trips and evidently enjoys them. She’s a rare case, but we’ve met other cats who like to get wet too.

We hope you’re sharing the warmer weather with your animal friends this lovely spring!
