The other day, Maggie and I found ourselves at Drigon Dog Park in Union City, CA. It is in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by tract homes and big wide roads. There's an obstacle course for big and small dogs with plenty of grass to run around on. I foolishly thought that Maggie would be psyched about getting on the obstacle course and I climbed up on it, thinking she would follow me. Instead, she went around the obstacle course and looked up at me as if to say, "Why would you climb this thing when you can go AROUND it?" Ok, Maggie's not an agility-type. In fact, she's kind of lazy. She sat around the shade just chillin' most of the time. (Incidentally under this sign that read "Sheba Shade")
She was also hustled by a large Husky who tried to dominate her. Maggie hates being dominated by certain male dogs, so she fought back feistily and the Husky really showed her who's boss. The owner of the Husky was very nonchalant even though Maggie was screaming bloody murder....some people really don't deserve to own dogs.
