As expected, Madison took her first puppy playgroup by storm! Mom loaded her into the car and drove to Dog Day Getaway where she also goes to daycare now and then, for an hour of puppy fun!
There are all kinds of puppy playgroups out there, but not all are created equal. This one is nice because it is indoors, you stay with your puppy, and there are staff members on hand to monitor puppy play.
The most exciting thing for Madison was figuring out how to jump up on the yellow table. At normal daycare she was always too small, but on this very day, she figured out how to jump up and she did it about a million times. Mom said Madison enjoyed being a bit taller than the other dogs for a change!
She wasted no time getting to know the other dogs, and inviting them to a game of “try to get this toy from me”.
And she was off with her new friends following! I don’t think she saw those jaws approaching from behind!
Another friend seems to be just as crazed as Madison. They were a serious team with a mission!
Once and a while it is good to catch some air, fly after your little friends.
Madison’s favorite friend was the tiny Cocker Spaniel puppy. I think she liked her because she was so small, which made Madison feel big!
Whoa! It looks like an all out game of chase the little guy! Watch your back tiny puppy!
After a while, Madison started feeling a bit bossy, and took it upon herself to discipline her new friend with a swat of the paw! The little one seems to be a bit confused by Madison’s behavior!
There was no shortage of little friends for Madison to play a game of chase with.
The hour of puppy playgroup flew by. So many friends and so much fun to be had. I think Madison will go back for another round next month!
After an hour of afternoon playgroup, Madison came home and crashed. She was pretty much worn out for the entire rest of the day. It was a great opportunity to socialize and play on some new equipment.
