You have to rise pretty early to get Ellie B into the ocean

The nice woman who owns the dog place in Dennis Port had told us about the dog-friendliness of West Dennis Beach before the crowds get there years ago.

This year we decided to take Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle the couple of miles down the road from Dennis Port to experience the surf of the Atlantic Ocean.

My dear wife Karen and I loaded our cherished rescue mutt into the Mazda sometime after 4:30 a.m. I had noted how the sun comes up earlier in Cape Cod than it does at A Bitty Better in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville.

There was attendant at the gate. We drove into the expansive parking lot.

Feeling fine at 5 a.m.

My, how we three were rewarded.

The beauty of this beach took our breath away.

Big sky country.

As wife and dog frolicked in the surf, I clicked away on my iPhone 6. I even remembered to turn in the other direction and got an eyeful.

Are you watching this, Da?

I kept telling Ellie B what a good dog she was, too.

Ocean run.

She made Karen jog.

Great start.

And she made the most of the moment.

We have a beach dog, for sure.

Tomorrow: Pancakes and shrimp
