I big shout to Doggies at The Beach for taking such good care of my little Diva, Miss Addy.  Doggies at the beach is a 3,500 square foot indoor, cage free doggie day care.  It is Miss Addy’s home away from home.  While visiting Doggies at the Beach she met Santa.  I know what her expression is telling me, but I am glad she went along with the program.  Doggies at The Beach is located at 18806 J. Williams Hwy. in Rehoboth Beach.  Tel. 302-644-8200.  They have 24 hour human supervision and even web cams so that you can follow your precious pooch.  Grooming is also available.  They are on Facebook, as well.  Check them out because they are always hosting events and very much involved in the community.  Jim and his staff are very caring and obviously they love dogs!!  Please visit http://www.doggiesatthebeach.com.

This would be a great stocking stuffer for your dog.  Your pooch will love these Tail Bangers made with whole wheat flour, rolled oats, eggs, canola oil, fresh ground peanuts, honey, cinnamon, with a vanilla yogurt coating.  Tail Bangers are made in Millsboro, Delaware, about 1/2 hour from Rehoboth Beach.  The company has gone big, a success story.  I have not visited but can’t wait to do so.  You can find Tail Bangers at Doggies at The Beach, Candy Kitchen, Pet Stores in the area and even the UPS store at the Safeway Shopping Center.  I took them as a gift to my friend’s dog, Dale, in Bluffton, South Carolina and they were a big hit.  So, I decided to try them myself.  They smell so good.  I took a bite and they were not bad at all.  After all they are made with all natural ingredients.  Tail Bangers is located at 24546 Betts Pond Rd., Millsboro, DE 19956   You can find them on Facebook and Twitter. Website?  www.tailbangers.com.

Another great stocking stuffer for those that love to cook and for your favorite foodies are these Sea Salts made right here on the coast by SoDel Concepts.  There is the Bay Spice, the Summer Lemon Zest, and the Black Pepper Fennel.  You can get these salts at any of SoDel Concepts Restaurants from Lewes to Fenwick Island.  For the locations of the restaurants, please visit http://www.sodelconcepts.com.

Another perfect gift….a book, the perfect companion.  Truddi Chase was from Maryland.  Her story was made into a movie years ago, base on her first book When Rabbit Howls.  The movie was called Voices Within: The Lives of Truddi Chase.  It was an autobiography about her experiences after being diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder.  Truddi was interviewed by Oprah.  Her story is a fascinating one of survival after been sexually abuse from age two.  She coped by developing 92 personalities.  She never integrated them so she lived with them all of her life until she died in 2010.  Her second book has just come out thanks to her daughter, Kari, who lives in Lewes.  This second book is more whimsical.  All art work is by Truddi and the different personalities.  The name of the book is The Creature of Habit.  You can get it at http://www.truddichase.com

City Dock

City Dock

A little historical trivia never hurts….Since Lewes was the earliest settlement in the State, and Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution, the town is known as The First Town in The First State.  Lewes is named after the town of Lewes in England, located in Sussex, from which Sussex County, Delaware takes its name.  Lewes, Sussex, England, also has the same seal.

dscn4391

The history of Lewes dates to 1631.  Many of the houses in the Historical District and around Lewes have historical designation.  One such house and one everyone should stop by is the Fisher-Martin House where the Lewes Chamber of Commerce is located.  This house is circa 1730.  Plenty of information can be found at the Chamber, so if you are just visiting, please stopy by.  Location? 120 Kings Highway, Lewes, DE 19958  Website?  http://www.leweschamber.com Tel. 302-645-8412

dscn4342dscn4388

It has been a long time since Lewes rolled up its streets after the summer season until the next year.  This town is a vibrant community with plenty of restaurants, unique boutiques, museums….and so walkable.  As you stroll Lewes check some of the homes with beautiful architecture.

On March 19, 1891 it was first called Cape Henlopen City.  In 1893, the name was formally changed to Rehoboth.  Since then, Rehoboth Beach has been welcoming thousands of visitors not just in the summer, but year round.  It is a destination for many, and for a lot of us, it is also home.  Living at the beach is great, and, believe me, I do not take it for granted.

In 2009 I adopted Miss Addy.  I call her my princess, best in show, the best and most beautiful dog in the world…all kinds of silly names.  Miss Addy is a mutt and a “rescue”.  I think she was about a little over a year when I adopted her.  Here is her photo.  She is a little Diva now.  She learned quickly.

img_7894

Word of mouth is everything.  So, when my friend, Renee told me about Doggies at The Beach, I thought it would be the perfect place to leave Miss Addy when I was traveling for a day or overnight.  It would give me a piece of mind.  Not everyone can or want to travel with their pooches, so be sure when I tell you that they will be well taken care of at Doggies at The Beach.

Doggies at The Beach is located at 18806 John J. Williams Highway (Rt. 24) in Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971.  Tel. 302-644-8200  Website?  http://www.doggiesatthebeach.com.  Doggies at The Beach is open 7 days a week.  You can leave your dog for overnight care, day care, and grooming.  Throughout the year they hold training classes and they also hold vaccination days at a discount rate.

At times, when I come in the customers make me laugh.  Here are some of the photos.

dscn8135dscn1745

There are no cages here.  What they do have are 6 separate play areas that are small, medium and large.  24-human supervision is one of the services that they are so proud of.  They play with the dogs, take them out for walks and give them a treat here or there, as well.

DoggiesatBeach-2 (1)

With 3,500 square feet they have plenty of space for all their customers to have a good time.  They will be comfortable since the location is climate controlled and with purified air.  There are 5 web cams….just in case you want to follow your pooches daily activities.  Names like Little Dippers, Moon Doggies, Big Kahunas are the names they give to the play areas which are assigned according to size.  They even have a Puppy Palace, just in case your pooch demands a suite.  The last day of your adorable pet stay, they will give him or her a bath…a scarf and they will be ready to go.

Miss Addy just spent a week at Doggies at The Beach, while I was in Charleston.  My cousin was so jealous because where she lives she does not have this type of care for her dog.  So, when I got a few texts from Doggies at The Beach sending me photos of Miss Addy….she was like….what?

Before you start leaving your pet at Doggies at The Beach there are procedures to follow.  A temperament evaluation…no agressive dogs, please.  Shots and any other pertinent info.  Best if you call them at 302- 644-8200.

AboutMyBeaches Turns 5!! Events, Restaurants, Reviews, Where to Shop…and What to Cook for Dinner! Advertisers: Beach House Management, Coastal Chem-Dry, Doggies At The Beach, Alice H. Klein-TKO, Butter Shades, Bethany Area Realty…Word of Mouth

img_6850

Five years ago I was sitting at Hobos located at Baltimore Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, when my husband suggested I started a website.  To tell you the truth I think he was tired of me calling him to the office to tell him I had found a better place to get corn, or that the crabs were bigger at such and such place…..and can you believe they are putting another bla bla bla store here?

I fell right into it.  But from a website it went to a website written in a blog style.  Living at the beach is great.  I never take it for granted.  And, for so many years John and I lived here at the Delaware Beaches.  He could have written the blog himself also.  I guess being residents of the “Beaches” gave us the ability to pass on the information….at times maybe too much information.

For the ones that follow my blog, there are over 43,000 photos.  5 years worth of photos.  My family is still not at ease by my taking photos of the food at restaurants.  They say that is so embarrassing.  My friends?  They are more forgiving.  They humor me and don’t dare to start eating until the photo or photos are taken.

John was my best PR person.  He always carried AboutMyBeaches cards in his wallet.  But, John passed away last August.  Yes, that’s the way life goes; not fair.  He had a very dry sense of humor and I am sure he is watching what I am writing and what I am eating.  He was the first foodie I knew.  We miss him so much.

My advertisers are great, just click on their website located on the right hand of this post.  I do know them personally.  I want to thank them by including them on this post.

BEACH HOUSE MANAGEMENT, LLC – At the head of this company is Michael Keegan.  Since 2003 his property management company took care of our Florida properties located in Delray Beach.  I could not say enough about Michael and his staff.  Having a property manager when you are not in the area is not an indulgency; it is a necessity.  If you are looking for someone in the Delray Beach area, please contact them. Tel. 561-376-4329

COASTAL CHEM-DRY – Carpet Cleaning and Upholstery – With locations throughout the State of Delaware, you can find them in New Castle, Kent, and Sussex counties.  I know them personally and be assured that you will get the best service from them.  Please visit the website to find out what specials they are running and to learn more about their “green” way of cleaning carpets and upholstery. Tel. 302-234-0200

DOGGIES AT THE BEACH – This is my dog’s, Addy, home away from home in Rehoboth Beach.  Cage free facility, grooming, classes and the best staff ever.  Call them at 302-644-8200.

ALICE H. KLEIN-TKO – I have been a fan of Alice’s jewelry for many years.  She is located in Bethany Beach, Delaware.  Every piece of jewelry is handmade….also she can make you a one of a kind piece.  Tel. 302-539-6992

BUTTER SHADES – Quality affordable sunglasses.  A traditional and classic look that anyone can wear.  Internet sales…just check out the website, place your order and in a few days you will get them.  Follow Butter Shades on Facebook.

BETHANY AREA REALTY, LLC – The Broker of Record for Bethany Area Realty is Ann Raskauskas.  I call her Annie.   My husband and I knew her well.  For many years she worked with my husband at Tidewater Realty.  They were best friends.  Annie, just like John did, loves to sell the lifestyle that they both enjoyed.  Annie is also involved in fundraising for charities that are close to her heart.  For rentals and sales, contact her at 302-537-9700.

What can I say…thanks to all the readers!!

Addy, My Pooch, Won!!, Daycare & Grooming, Doogies at The Beach, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Come closer…May I help you?

dscn8135dscn8136

Without a shadow of a doubt, Shadow, was eager to help as I stepped into Doggies at The Beach located at 18806 John J. Williams Highway, or Rt. 24 in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

My Heinz 57, Addy, won the “Valentine”s Day give-away.  How exciting!  Addy will be getting complimentary Daycare and Grooming, and she has until December of 2014 to use.  That won’t be a problem because when I need to leave the area, Doggies at The Beach is home away from home for Addy.  I have written plenty of times about this doggie day care facility.  It is cage free with 24/7 human supervision.  They offer day car, overnight care, training courses, and lots of love.  Tel. 302-644-8200.  Website?  http://www.doggiesatthebeach.com.  You can also follow them from your computer since they have webcams.

These other customers were there and I had to take their picture, as well.  They are a family and they moved in unisome.  Almost like saying “okay we stay together when at daycare”.  Too funny.
