The Fearless Faces Of Small Dogs

If you asked, “Hey Will, want to go play basketball with some friends?”  I would say yes. But if you asked, “Hey Will, want to go play basketball with some friends that are five to ten times your size?” I would probably have some reservations.  However, small dogs the world over seem to have no such qualms about mixing it up with their larger brethren.

I would probably pass on playing basketball with a guy who could stand over me, but small dogs seem to be fearless in the face of overwhelming odds 

There is no research whatsoever to back this claim up, but I swear that the smaller a dog actually is, the bigger it thinks it is.  That’s convenient for us, because Eko loves playing with small dogs.  I used to worry about it, but I quickly learned that the small pups are often more game than bigger dogs.

Chasing a thief seven times your size is generally ill advised, but this dog was undeterred

Possibly my favorite little-dog encounter happened the other day in the park.  Eko was lazily trotting around when I saw a little blur come out of nowhere to pounce on him.  Right before my fits of laughter made the camera too shaky to take a decent photo, I managed to get this shot.

Your classic David vs Goliath

While the above battles may appear fierce, they are always good natured romps.  And in the end, Eko always leaves his new friends smiling.

Next time you are overmatched, undersized or the odds are against you, remember the little dogs – I know I will!
