As usual, Penny rose out of the water with all the subtlety of Godzilla
And, as usual, Penny set off a frenzied dash from the other pup
At first I thought this would be another time I needed to step in and settle Penny
But a light bulb seemed to go off in the other pup’s head
“Hey, you know what? I’m a crazy puppy too!”At that moment, a very nice woman quickly said, “She’s a five month old pup and a bit crazy, so please let me know if she plays too rough.”“Perfect!” I said.
On cue, the pup turned the tables on Penny and chased her down the beach.
The pup was completely friendly, but I could see Penny wanted to disengage
“Hey, I’m supposed to be the annoying one!”
I kept a close watch on the two, and I saw Penny use body language and a little “back off” bark to send the other pup on her way. Penny was clearly flummoxed by the role reversal.
Oh, and where was Eko during all of this you ask? Comfortably watching the whole thing unfold with an evil grin on his face.
“Excellent” (Mr. Burns voice)
Could Eko or I have intervened? Sure. But was Penny ever in any danger? Nope. Well, unless you count being in danger of learning a thing or two. As Penny grows, here’s hoping this lesson will stick with her!
