Here's something elegant: having a picnic at the beach. Preferably around sunset when the crowds aren't there. It keeps your pooch focused on you and the activity. Plus, better lighting! Bring the staples of a good French meal: the baguette, the cheese, the wine, the salad. Be sure to bring the dog's food and water.
We live in a modern age where social media prevails. Unfortunately, that means seeing what everyone else is up to out of a fear of missing out, or straight up envy. But that's not very elegant. Elegance is minding your own business. So put the phone down, and take your pooch for a fabulous walk around your neighborhood, or even better, go to a nice park together. Live your lives and forget about what everyone else is doing!
