Today I am turning over my blog for the very first time to my little sister Bailie. Actually, she can’t type yet and is not good at spelling, so she is dictating this post to me about her first trip to a dog park.
A week ago, Mom said that we were going to have some Mom and Bailie alone time. Every now and then we each get to do something special and alone with Mom. Her idea was to take me to a dog park for the first time.
Emma and Katie have told me a lot about dog parks, so I was pretty excited to give it a try. Mom thought it would be best for me to try it out alone first as my big sisters can sometimes be rather protective of me and we didn’t need any trouble the first time out. She decided to take me to Alimagnet Park since is it pretty close to where we live and it is not too big.
As we pulled into the parking lot I could hear and see dogs all over the place. I was a bit scared to get out of the car, but Mom assured me that it was all cool and there were supposed to be a lot of dogs at a dog park.
I was feeling pretty small and shy I must say. I wished my sisters were with me to act as body guards. The moment we got into this fenced park some big dogs approached and gave me a complete sniff over. I stood still, tail between my legs and did not move.
I was starting to get cold as it wasn’t really a warm day out and I wasn’t doing much running around. We decided to head back to the car. I still don’t have a real adult fur coat, so Mom makes sure I am not out too long in the cold.
The best part of the whole adventure was that we met Cindy with her dogs Orlando and Wyatt. At first Mom was a bit freaked out because someone was calling out that Bailie was there and who would know me? It turns out that Cindy and her dogs follow Emma’s blog and they recognized me. Orlando and Wyatt were very nice to me and Orlando even posed for this photo with me. Isn’t he a funny guy with all that long curly fur? Wyatt was a super cool looking dude, but he was too busy chasing around to stop for a photo with a “baby”. They were sad that Emma wasn’t along but they were thrilled to at least meet me. I was so excited to get home and tell Emma all about them!
My take on dog parks is that they are scary. Next time I will take at least one of my sisters with me I think and maybe we can go to their favorite park instead of this one. I was able to stand up tall and get my tail out from between my legs once we got back to the car. It was fun having an outing with Mom, but next time I hope we get to do something less scary! On the way home we did stop at the pet store and I got to pick out a cookie to eat in the car, that was fun!
Thanks for letting me post on your blog today, big sis! You are so cool, I love you and want to grow up to be just like you!
