This past Sunday, Pickles and I went to the Bark Park and we were playing all alone when a man opened the gate to the big dog side and let his dog in. The only interaction Pickles has had with other dogs has been with ones smaller that her and she was a bit aggressive (for my liking) so I wasn't sure how this was going to go. Georgia, the dog's name, came up and they smelled each other for a minute then it was off to play! They ran together, chased balls together and when Pickles would pick up a stick, Georgia would take it then Pickles would take it back! While they were running, Pickles got so tired several times that when she stumbled and fell, she would just lay there! But within a minute, she was up and at it again. Two other dogs (the names of which I have forgotten) came into the area and then they all played. One of the dogs, a Plott Hound, would easily jump the fence when the owner threw a ball over and was so graceful in doing it. The other just ran and played with Georgia and Pickles. The last two dogs were rescues from New Orleans during Katrina. They all played for what seemed 30 or so minutes then, one by one, everyone left.
Pickles needed a bath when we got home so she got a nice warm one then fell asleep on the sofa. She ate a hearty meal and slept good that night!
