Years ago, I used to take Alex to a dog park in Annapolis, MD, but I realized very fast that it was a waste of time so I stopped doing it.
Why? Because as soon as we got to the dog park she’d go to where all the pet parents were gathered rather than going to play with the other dogs. Alex gets along with dogs, but since she was a puppy she seemed to prefer humans.
The only fear I have when Alex meets new people is that she will give them what I call a saliva bath. My girl is more social than I am, but then again Alex is better in so many other things than I am and as such she is a great teacher. Have a great week.
