The Small Dog Coalition

November 16, 2010

There has been some grumbling at the dog park recently.  The dog park is open to all dogs, but two hours each day are set aside for small and senior dogs.  Apparently some people have not been following the rules, and have even been hostile to small dog owners during small dog hours.  Shocking, I know.

Generally Chloe and I operate under a live and let live philosophy.  If you have a big dog in the park and it’s technically small dog hours I’m not going to call you out.  Unless your dog is going after my Chloe.  Then I’m going to grab that big dog’s collar, walk him over to his owner and educate them about small dog hours.  Bye bye, big dog.

This approach generally works OK for Chloe, but she’s a pretty tough little dog.  Other dogs don’t fare so well.  So the small dog owners have formed a coalition.  This past Sunday we put up a united front at the dog park.  Small dogs only!  I have to say it was an awesome hour.  The dogs played and played and I wasn’t on constant alert about Chloe.

Casper says, "Guys! Let's play Ultimate!"

Hey dogses! I got the ball!

Zoe shows Casper who's king of the hill

The little Papillion in front is named either Sonic or Tails (they're brothers). Both are under five pounds!

Sonic? Tails? I can't tell them apart yet.

Here Mama. I pose.


Dis best day ever!

      Chloe is an American dog. No royal ways for her. She’s a dog of the people (erm… dogs?). That’s why she’s running for Prez-dent!
