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?
