Dailure at the dog park
I started taking Cleo to the dog park. Yesterday we were there for two hours; don't know where the time went, we 'met' new dogs, played in the pond and schmoozed. Cleo and I had a great time. Dog people seem to be funny people, they don't jump into relationships, they size their humans up, go 'smelling' around for ilk of their kind or not, and then only speak 'dog'. It's a whole new world to me. I don't think I'm really an Alpha human. I don't feel comfortable just joining the circle, kind of stand outside and assess for awhile and 'feel' my way in. And that's exactly how Cleo behaves in her world.
