The past week took me to VA and MD for work. I lucked out weather-wise and though most of the days started with steady rain and clouds my free evening found the clouds parting, temperatures unusually mild, and the dog park active!
Gabe, the very polite and adorable Rottweiler puppy - just learning how to venture out and play with others…
Bentley, the border collie, was there with his soccer ball. Shaking off
any nerves before his first ever Search and Rescue assignment in the
Roman, the handsome Vizsla who barely stopped long enough for me to grab an image!
Libby, the uber sweet Goldendoodle who was happy to play with EVERYONE..
So many other lovely dogs and equally friendly and welcoming humans! I understood how well this group knows each other when I saw a man trying to leave with a big dog. She would walk a few steps then fall flat out to the ground. No amount of pulling or cajoling would get her up. I finally asked - “Sir, is your dog ok?” The whole group chimed in, “That’s just Roxie - she doesn’t want to go home.”
Last week, at this friendly park - I felt the same way.
