Kia was the runt of the litter

At an unincorporated no-man's land at mouth of Santa Ana River at border between Newport and Huntington Beaches sits a hidden dog beach--that other dog beach. While most automatically think of Huntington Beach's Dog Beach on Pacific Coast Highway, this one is a bit more secluded.

It's so unknown, in fact, that even when photographer Keith May asked a lifeguard at 74 about it, he had never even heard of such a place. The beach has no name, no cops, no leash laws. Just dogs running wild and having the time of their lives (there's even a few surfing ones in the mix, like Kia up there!) in the gentle surf and shallow river. When asked if he had to describe what city the beach is located in, May replied Newport, since the sandbar is on that side of the river. So Newport it is.

TOTALLY free-range... but cute. Why do dogs always look so worried when pooping anyway?
