Dog Park Adventures.

Feb 19, 2012

We took Twink to the dog park for the first time yesterday and it was quite the adventure for him. At home he is king of the roost. He's got us wrapped around his finger and he knows it. And he's quite fearless. He'll jump and run and play and bite (although that last one is discouraged). So we take him to the dog park and since it's cold and snowy still there are only 2 other dogs there. One BIG dog that looks like a golden/lab mix (has to weigh more than I do) and one medium dog that looked like a pug (probably about 20 pounds). Then there's Twink who's a little chihuahua (weighing in at just 6 pounds). We walk in there, Twink on the leash, and they both run over to say hi. The pug's version of saying hi is to molest Twink and try to bite him when he wasn't looking. The golden's hi was more friendly but probably more scary because Twink's whole body was about the size of his face. Needless to say Twink was terrified. We learned the hard way that outside of the home Twink is very timid and don't even sniff the other dogs to try and make friends. I'm going to try and socialize him more but since we live in a very secluded place there's only so much I can do. Hopefully more trips to the dog park will pull him out of his shell. Once the other dogs left him alone he had a lot of fun exploring his new surroundings and Aaron and I got some very welcome time together.

  1. I wish Bobo wasn't such a spazz or we'd bring the dogs to the dog park more often. I love Twink. So precious.
