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!
