A whole new experience

 OMD, you guys, you won'ts BELIEVE what I did the other day!! We went up last weekend to see our Best Guy, and he told us that there was something called a dog park just around the corner that I might want to try. I've heard some of you talk about these things, but I'd never actually been to one. (Momma says there's one in our town, but it's small and has not-responsible owners that don't clean up after their dogs. Yuck.)

So we showed up and Momma took my walking string off. There were all these others doggies around that looked like fun, and I hoped she'd introduce me! And then.... she just said "go play." You mean I can just go do whatever I want???

Oh boy oh boy did I have FUN!!! I ran around sniffing at other dogs, then they sniffed me, then we ran after each other! I introduced myself to bunches of humans and wasn't timid at all like I usually am. I just felt so free and confident! I ran SO many laps around the park, I lost count!! It was just the mostest amazingest day.

And Momma said afterwards, "The proof is in the pudding."


I didn't see any pudding, but I knows I was sooooooo sleepy after we gots home. Instead of wiggling around making sure I got all the attention from Momma and our Best Guy, I just curled up on the couch and slept until it was time to go home. 

Momma says we'll definitely go back there. I can't wait! ...But I think I'm already tired. BOL!
