dog park

the other day, I took Dakota to the dog park for the first time.

we did not have a good experience. we are both traumatized.

When we first arrived, all the other little dogs were leaving.

After a few minutes, a dog and his owner showed up. He (the dog) ran over to greet us, and after sniffing Dakota's rear, proceeded to mark his territory on my leg. :/

Dakota, being protective of me, was not pleased. This dog did not make a good first impression on either of us.

A few minutes later, another dog and his owners arrived. Mr. Butters was his name and he was white, fluffy, and half the size of Dakota.

But even though he was much smaller than she, he liked her very much.

so much that he would not stop humping her. She did not appreciate his forwardness, and started yelping every time he came close to her. She was so scared of these two dogs, that she didn't want to leave my lap.

I asked if she was ready to leave, and thus was the end of our dog park experience.

We returned home violated and smelling of dog pee.

I don't think we will be returning anytime soon.
