Point Mugu State Park dog dives in rough ocean waters

Crazy dog swimming through rough waters - thumbnail. Sometimes when traveling you get to witness amazing things that you were not planning to see at all. This is what happened to me when going to the beach again at Point Mugu State Beach in California. I have brought some relatives of ours to the beach since they have not been in this part of the state. When we got there, we noticed that the waves were pretty rough and very loud (about 10 feet high). The water was breaking very close to shore, which made it pretty hard for us to enjoy the water. Eventually we decided to head back home since we couldn’t really play in the water much.

Dogs are very obedient indeed

When we were about to leave we noticed a man with five dogs coming on the beach and playing with them and throwing the ball around so that they would chase it and bring it back. We didn’t pay much attention until the owner threw the ball in the water this time, and way past the breaking point of the waves. We then noticed that one of the five dogs went straight for the ball. He didn’t care about the waves and jumped right in.

Or dogs are pretty crazy

We all went: “Oh no!” as a big wave came crushing right on top of the dog. The dog got spun up pretty well but he came out through the wave and kept swimming and believe it or not he actually got the ball and brought it back. We all stood there wondering if this was a very courageous dog or just plain crazy.

Dogs like to play apparently, regardless of the danger

The owner didn’t think anything about it and after a few minutes he threw the ball back in the water and the same dog went for the ball and got it the second time. It looked to us that he has done this kind of thing many times before and enjyed it.
