If there is no stick to hand a bit of floppy seaweed will have to do. This young dog I met on Corran Sands on Jura was more than happy to play fetch with a bit of seaweed.
Enjoying a sunny November day on Islay out on Kilchoman beach this dog is having fun with its favourite toy. Its coming back from the water with the tennis ball thrown out for it.
This Border Collie seemed to be quite keen to say hi to the stranger with the camera, when it spotted me it ran all the way from the dunes across the beach over to me. A quick hello and off it was again, back to its owner at the dunes.
