Whether they're chasing sand up and down the beach or kayaking to unknown lands with their owners, the pups of Hawaii always seem to have a smile on their face. Below are just a few (of our many) favorite dog and pup photos.

Sitting on the dock of the bay Go for an adventure today #optoutside Behind the scenes: it was kinda a gloomy afternoon at the house, but I convinced myself that Sierra & I needed an adventure more than Netflix. I had seen pics of this place, but never been so I decided to check it out. We got there and grabbed some pics that were ok, but just didn’t have anything special to them. As we sat on the dock all of a sudden a hole in the clouds opened up and these amazing sun rays poured through lighting up the peaks in front of us perfectly. I scrambled to get the tripod setup again as I knew it wouldn’t last. We got this shot and a minute later the light was gone again. Sometimes your just lucky and are in the right place at the right time.
