Here's a couple of photos of my sister and brother-in-law's dog, Monty. He's a Border Collie who loves the water. My sister found this out when, one hot afternoon in Australia, she left a small pool of water in the backyard and Monty took to it like a magnet to steel. Recently, my sister and brother-in-law discovered a dog-friendly beach along the northern beaches of Sydney. Although Australians think of themselves as dog-loving people, dog-friendly restaurants and similar places are hard to find. So, chancing upon a public beach that allowed dogs can be considered a major find. From the photos, Monty loves the place.
