This shot was taken back when Benny was really Baby Benny. It was taken in April 2003 in Ocean City, MD and Benjamin was just a year old.
We decided to take Benjamin and Henry to the beach (or down the ocean hun if your from Baltimore) in April because it is the off season and dogs are allowed on the beach and the boardwalk.
It was a windy day and as soon as we hit the boardwalk the wind picked up even more. Benny was a bit chilly so we bought two toddler shirts for the boys from one of the few shops that was open and having a clearance sale. Benny got a tough guy muscle shirt and Henry ended up with a peach Ocean City shirt with sleeves. Needless to say, Henry was unhappy with the fact that his shirt had sleeves and actually refused to walk once we put his shirt on him. So off came Henry's shirt. To this day, he refuses to wear a shirt with sleeves.
We walked up and down the boardwalk and down by the water and the pugs had a blast. I vividly remember the pugs' ears blowing straight up in the air from the strong wind. In fact, the strong winds almost delivered the pugs a whole pizza. We stopped for lunch at one of our favorite pizza places and setup a nice place to eat on the boardwalk. Well, a strong gust of wind came along and blew our pizza right down the boardwalk! Luckily, we were able to catch it and no damage was done, but it was kinda funny chasing our pizza down.
