When I see my other handsome sweet dog, Ackerman the Boxer on our beach it's a kissing moment. Ackerman is 4 yrs old and I used to see him everyday while running with his person Bob. I like that Bob knew that that daily long run would cause trouble in the future for Ackerman. I see dogs running with their people but most dogs in the wild don't run just for the fun of running. Ackerman still gets his fun time at the beach. I LOVE THIS DOG!
