Here are the other photos that accompanied the Monday article in the Extra section:
Henry, a 5-year-old, 207-pound English mastiff, rests under an umbrella. He visited Avon Beach in the Outer Banks in May with his pet parent, Kathy Myrman of Old Southwest Roanoke.
Linus, a miniature schnauzer, visited the beach for the first time in May. "He was mesmerized by all the people around and the huge body of water, which I am pretty sure he thought was a huge bathtub, so he refused to go in," said his pet mom, Nicole Bruch of Southwest Roanoke.
