    "The drive to Assateague is about 3 hours, and we were being blasted with sunlight pretty much the entire time. But the moment we pulled up to the ocean, the clouds quickly rolled in, and it started to drizzle. Who cares though? We love the rain!"

    "We were the only ones around, so Ruby was the first to be let off her leash. She entered the water all on her own–proud mama moment. Except she bolted off, heading for shore upon hearing the sounds of the first crashing wave. It's okay… she got back in."

    "I prepared all of our food ahead of time. Since this trip was planned at the last minute, we weren't too sure of any dog-friendly restaurants in the area. With three of them, eating out would've been quite the challenge anyway. Here's Christian sharing his yummy roast beef sandwich with Dukes—onions removed of course."

    "Wouldn't you know it–the sun came back out after we left. It wasn't a completely clear sky, but just enough for us to witness the most magical sunset from our hotel balcony. Although we did have a few interruptions from the Bichon Frisé staying down the hall. We spent the night in Ocean City, which is only 15 minutes from Assateague. It was a great hotel, with wonderful service, and they love pit bulls!"

    "Back in time to catch some "funnies" on t.v. before calling it a night."

    "Back on the beach again, and it was a sunny day. I'm wearing my most favorite piece of jewelry that I own—a birthday gift from Christian. He had this bracelet custom-made for me. If you look closely, you can probably make out which one is Ruby, and which is Dukes. Too bad we couldn't get a third head on there somewhere. Poor Violet."

    "It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." -Unknown

    "Dukes was my best friend. He was also my muse, as his passion for life served as a constant source of inspiration to me. I could never tire of photographing him. Since his passing, I've been told numerous times "how lucky Dukes was to have me." But in fact, it was me who was so lucky to have him. He was the smartest, funniest, most loyal, incredibly strong, yet equally sensitive dog—all wrapped into one perfect pittie package. He changed my life and I will miss him forever."
