"RUFF DAY AT THE BEACH" was inspired by our local dog beach. Since I don't have the time to care for my own dog anymore I go to this beach to watch the doggies frolic in the sand and surf. They have such a wonderful time. It's my interpretation of our local dog beach where it's so fun to go and watch all the different breeds of doggies frolic in the sun and surf. Unfortunately I'm too busy to have a dog these days so this is how I get my dog fix!
