This nine-month old Bernese Mountain Dog puppy named Maddie has a lot to learn from Libbey, an 11-year old Jack Russell Terrier. If there is no ball for Libbey to push around the beach with his nose, he finds rocks to move around instead.

Libbey also dances in the surf, entertaining passers-by with his antics. Owner Jeannie Payne says people who come to Scotch Beach look for Libbey every year.
