The joyful spirit of a dog named Forrest, who passed away earlier this year, continues to live on in the place which had been his favorite throughout his happy life - thanks to a sweet, simple memorial sharing with others what he had loved the most.
"Forrest loved to play on this beach," reads a sign posted above a basket full of sandy tennis balls. "Please feel free to borrow a ball and play with your dog. Please return it when you are done so others may play as well."
Below, curious passersby are invited learn more about the cherished animal in whose honor the memorial was placed on that Oxnard, California beach. And like a plain keyhole overlooking a breathtaking vista, that's where the unforgettable story of Forrest, and the people who loved him so dearly, begins to unfold so beautifully.
