Lao "teh" Dog

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

November 16th 2004

Dog Parks.

Animals dressed as people.

Favorite Toy:
Beanie Buddy that looks like him.

Favorite Food:
French Fries, the only human food I let him have... because it's my favorite too.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere, unleashed preferred.

Best Tricks:
Learned 14 commands in 2 weeks so he could perform them for a video game animation team (for their video game). He was added to the credits as "Lao the Dog".

Arrival Story:
I wanted a Chow, and my ex wanted a Lab. She found a woman that was giving up her Chow/Lab mix. I wasn't going to go for it, until I thought of this cute little pup just waiting for a home. Before I completely bought off on the idea of getting a dog, she picked him up, brought him home, and he has been with me ever since (except at the dog parks where he forgets I exist).

He is part Lab and part Chow ... so I call him Lao. It was better than naming him Chabrador. Not sure what it is, but Golden Retrievers beware of Lao... he loves to hump them. And as an agreement to the woman that gave me Lao... he has not been sexually mutilated.

I've Been On Dogster Since:

Play Time

So, I don't really get it. Sakai... my long time friend since we were puppies, was so fun to play with.

She was a blonde/albino dobbie... and she was always 20 lbs more than me. But when we got older, she moved to Sacramento, and I stayed in the bay area.

Now... I can't find anyone that likes to play the way she did. We were so rough with each other. She would try to hump me... I would try to hump her. She would try to pin me down, I would avoid with masterfully ninja skills. She would bark, I would laugh at her.

But everytime I try to play with another dog... either the dog doesn't like it or the dog likes it but the owner freaks out like something bad is going to happen. I wonder why some owners can't tell the difference between nice and not nice barks/growls. It's definitely an easier language than english.

I just don't get it. So I started playing with a small Habanese dog named Benny. He was a lot of fun. I would lay down... and open my mouth... and he would dart in and out as if I was a mouse trap. He would get such a kick out of it. But the said thing is... Benny lives in a condo... and all of a sudden... I'm not allowed to go there anymore because I way more than 25lbs. Maybe I should try the subway diet.

So... I guess I have no choice but to play alone and/or with my human friends. It's not like it's not fun... it's just... it's not the same. They can't run as fast, they won't smell me in the right places, and fetch/catch/tug of war gets boring after a while. He tries his best though... he plays all those games with me and when that gets boring... he slides me down those slides... he hides things for me to find... but he isn't a dog.

Anyone else feel the way I feel?
