7-Month Itch

My 2 new toys for my birthday. Mom got me the ladybug and Dad got me the dumbbell.

Taken on May 28 when I first got my toy.

Taken on May 29. Bye bye ladybug, nice knowing you for a day. :)  Get your sewing kit Mom!

I was at the dog park on Friday with Mom and I played with Maya. She's only 3 months old and was quite feisty. She's an Aussie Shep mix. Then, a Ridgeback, St. Bernard, Lab mix, and a Chow came at about the same time. Everything was fine and I played with the big dogs but after several minutes, Mom decides to take me to the small dog park before the St. Bernard slobber all over me. There was a Beagle and a longhaired Chihuahua at the small area. The owners of the St. Bernard and Lab mix walked over to our side still separated by the gate and the Chihuahua started barking at the Lab. I joined in the fun sans the barking. The owners were talking and the Chihuahua's human was petting the St. Bernard. The chihuahua kept barking and so did the Lab. The Lab's human kept tugging on his collar to make him stop barking. Then Mom and I kinda moved away and started playing "soccer" on the other side. All of the sudden, we heard a scream. The Beagle's owner dove in to protect her dog away from the Lab mix and she got bitten on her wrist. We both looked at them in shocked and then Mom kicked the ball as far she could to get me away from the commotion. She says "Down" and I just stared at her and then she said "wait" and I didn't move when she went near the commotion. The beagle got a few bite marks but was ok. The human however, was bleeding and her friend called 911. Mom then asked the 12-year old girl what happened. Apparently, she and her friend were at the big dog park area and as they went into the small area, they did not close the gate behind them. The Lab mix got in and went for the Beagle instead of the Chihuahua. Anyhow, the police came in to interview both parties and the victim was taken to the hospital by the ambulance. The beagle's owner even said that it's no one's fault, it's an accident.  What a day!
Maya and I having fun earlier

I have already forgotten yesterday's event as I had another fun time with my buddies today.  I played mostly with a 7-month old pit named Holly.  I think I prefer her over Stacks.  I was there for over 2 hours.  Dad asked Audrey's human to dog sit me for a few minutes while he picks up my Mom.  I was so happy to see both of them after 10 minutes. For a split second, I thought they had abandoned me.

Jackie (I stole her toy again),  dunno, Bailey, Audrey, Holly, Vivian, and Truman

And this is Nemi, we tumbled for a bit

And this is how I feel today:  HAPPY.  It was a gorgeous sunny day, I got more playtime, I got to lounge around by the shaded trees, and Mom didn't give me a bath.
