Beach Dog of the Month: Meet Izzy!

Now that's a happy dog!

How old are you?
I turned 3 on June 4th - my mom and dad's wedding anniversary.

What kind of dog are you?
I'm a Brittany Spaniel.

What's your favorite part about visiting the beach?
I love the smells. My nose could take me very far if I wasn't leashed. I love watching the birds and digging in the sand. I also always try to eat crab shells and legs when I see them on the beach.

Read Izzy's full interview on our Facebook page!
