A Trip to Crane Beach with Holly and Arthur (our new dog!)

Two weeks ago we expanded our family to include a new furry friend - Arthur!  We rescued Arthur through Lucky Lab Rescue and he has been a wonderful addition.  He is just over a year old and may be the sweetest boy around.  We decided to rescue a dog because we did not really want a puppy (although they are available through rescues as well) and there are so many wonderful dogs looking for their forever homes that we knew we would find the perfect fit.

Meet Arthur!
This past weekend we made it up to Crane Beach for the last doggie-friendly weekend (the season ends the last day of March).  After last year, we were looking forward to a day with a bit less wind and some warmer temps; luckily Saturday had both.  The beach had a bunch of people walking with their K9 companions - this was a perfect Easter weekend adventure.

I said it last year and I will say it again for next year - we need to make it up with the dogs more often, it is just a great time!  While parking at Crane in the summer is pricey, it is only $8 during the off months.

Regarding rescuing a dog, if you have any questions let me know!  


  1. You just got him and you can already leave him off leash?

    1. Yes! We have been working with Zen Dog Training who have been wonderful - that and at the beach there was plenty of room to roam without danger :) No off leash in city parks yet!

  2. Awww! I love them. I have volunteered at the MSPCA for years and am a HUGE fan of rescues. There are so many amazing animals out there.

  3. Arthur is beautiful! good for you guys for rescuing him. he's got to be the happiest rescue ever, getting to frolic the shores of crane's :)

  4. Aww! looks like a great day at the beach.

  5. So much fun!! So excited for you guys! We need a playdate!
