A  photographic timeline of our Afghan Hounds on beaches they loved. From the top down:                                                                                                                               1977 Kelly on Shoreham Beach                                                                                         1987 Suki and Flossie on Merricks Beach                                                                      2003 Kara at Ricketts Point                                                                                                2010 Charlie at Shoreham Beach                                                                                     2017 Maggie at Ricketts Point

The first 5 were at trusted times of their lives when they were lead free on their favourite beaches, as yet Maggie is on hold although she is trusted to walk in and out the front gate to and from the car.  Kelly loved the beach most of all as can be seen from the disturbed sand around her as she grins into the lens.

One place Charlie can roam free off a lead without any mishaps is Merricks Beach on Westernport Bay. Lots of time and space for a dog to take in the scenery, think about life and generally enjoy being a dog without restrictions.
