During a recent trip to the dog park, Penny wasted no time causing a ruckus.
Like a lot of youngsters, Penny often thinks she has it all figured out. When we got to the park, aside from Eko, Penny was one of the larger pups there. Penny triumphantly ruled the roost.
But while Penny overpowered a little guy, she failed to notice a Bernese Mountain Dog’s arrival
But when she did notice him, Penny was scared stiff!
And then bolted to me for safety
Between laughing and trying to not get crushed, I couldn’t hold the camera still. Nevertheless, these blurry photos crack me up
The family of the Bernese kindly offered to move to another side of the park, but I insisted they stay. “There’s always a bigger dog” is an important lesson for Penny to learn. She can’t always just muscle her way through life, so learning to interact and play with big pups is a valuable part of her development.
Big friends are fun too
Penny and her new pal dashed up and down the park happily. With his long coat, the Bernese eventually decided it was too hot to play. He went back to his family and sat politely while Penny futilely pulled at his fur.
“Humans, please save me from this little monster”
At that point I intervened and saved the Bernese from Penny. There’s no pup too big to bug, but hopefully she won’t remember that lesson!
