Hershey said humans were hard to train but eventually they would come around. Well, today we went to the dog park and mom threw the ball for me, with the chuck it stick even!
We were headed for the Covered Bridge park, which is not a dog park, where I usually do my fetchin. But mom discovered she did not bring the leash she intended to bring and her usual leash reserves in the car had ended up in various jacket pockets over the holidays. It was a warm day here in CA so she did not have any of these jackets with her. So no Covered Bridge park. There were too many little kids n stuff for me to be running around without a leash this day. I was sad to drive away with no fetchin.
She drove to the Dollar store to get me a leash. They had collars but no leashes. So she bought some twine and a box cutter and fashioned a pretty sorry lead for me. But she was proud of her Boy Scout resourcefulness.
Anyway, we finally ended up at the dog park as it was the closest park to the Dollar store. She brought the chuck it stick along and threw the ball for me. I brought it back to her 3 or 4 times then decided I needed to meet some new people. So I took the ball to other humans to throw the ball for me. See I don't need mom anyway!
We have never been to the dog park on a Saturday before. There were lots more humans and lots more dogs. Fur the first time there was a dog there, a Visla, that was just as ball intense and could run faster than me! What a shock fur me. I guess I had to meet my match sooner or later.
