I Hate Daylight Savings

IMG_0773

Because of stupid daylight savings, it now gets dark by 6pm. So by the time mom gets home from work, picks me up, and gets me over to the dog park, I can only spend and hour or so there playing with my friends! This may seem like a lot to you, but we used to stay 2 hours! This means, when I get home, I still have energy left to burn. Well, actually, I sleep as soon as we get home. Then, when mom is ready to go to bed, I'm ready to play again!

Oh, the life of a dog is tough.



Oh, and mom now thinks I'm a magnet for aggressive dogs. We had just walked into the park last night, when a pit bull lunged at me and started barking at me. And not in a playful way. Mom blocked me with her body to keep it away from me. Mom was gratefull I was still on the leash. So mom looked over at Sandy's mom and quickly decided to go over to the "small dog side" of the park. I know this area well too. When we first started coming to the park, a lot times we were the only ones there, so we stuck to the smaller area so mom would have an easier time getting me to come.

Anyway, we started a trend and everyone else who showed up decided to join us on the small dog side. Even Gizmo! But, let's face it, Gizmo's just a small dog at heart anyway. (That's a good thing, Giz!) We had fun in the small side. And even the parents said they liked the small side a bit better, since they didn't have as far to walk and could see the parking lot and who was coming!

Shar Peis tend to be agression magnets or so my VET says. I didn't seem to get a lot of it until this past year. Do you think it's the wrinkles? It can't be nose envy can it?

Bolo - I think that's it. Shar Pei's are guard dogs, and won't back down from a fight. I don't back down until I'm hurt and bleeding! I don't see Beagles being that way!

And they must just be jealous of my cute, wrinkly face and curly tail!

Your mom is brave! I hate the change in time, too. My mom comes home after dark now. Good thing there is a small dog part in the park so you could have a good time.

love & wags,
River

Laney, your video is too cute!

I worry about you at the dog park. It seems like someone always wants to chomp on you.

I go to the dog park, but they are very careful about who can play there so there are no problems.

Please be careful and stick close to mom!
Kisses

Hi, Laney!
The same happens here. Now, my walkies are not too long because my mom does not like to be out when is dark!
Glad your mom was there to protect you from that dog!
Kisses and hugs

Life sure is tough.
Mom gets home when it's almost dark now to and to top that off its been raining all week. All mom wants to do is sleep when she gets home. Bummer.

Love Ruby
