Boy did we have a big day today!
It started with a morning in the dog park. The weather cooled off overnight so both girls were pretty frisky. Daisy ran around the park a lot! Someone brought a squeaky ball to the dog park. Now, of course Daisy freaked out! She wanted to kill the ball.
Now, as a side note to all the dog owners out there. If you are going to bring a toy to the dog park you can not assume that your dog will be able to maintain control of it and it isn’t fair to assume that everyone’s dog plays fetch. Daisy loves to chase the ball, but bringing it back isn’t a concept she understands. So don’t get upset when that toy is in some other dogs mouth and they are having fun with it. I don’t allow my dog free access to squeaky toys at home because she becomes possessed and tried to keep them from me, so guess what happens when you bring them into the dog park?
When Daisy finally dropped the ball Bella was right there to try and pick it up. Luckily I caught her by her back legs as she tried to dash off. I walked it back to the owners who huffed out of the dog park. Daisy looked for the new fun ball for a minute or two but went back to playing with the regular tennis balls.
I let her out on the balcony for a bit. The downstairs cat was out. Daisy is so funny! She is so focused on that cat but she doesn’t bay. She get so much energy and her muscles are so tight and her whole body just shakes while she watches it walk around. Then I gave her a kong with some sticky dog food and dry treats to work on while I got ready for the party.
The party was a lot of fun; it was at a place that does doggy daycare and boarding. They had snacks and a costume contest. They also had kiddie pools set up with mini pumpkins floating for “bobbing for pumpkins” contest. Daisy just looked at the dogs in the water like they were crazy. I think she looked super cute in her t-shirt, what do you think? We came home and she walked right over to her favorite place and slept for hours!
