One of my favorite parts of the day is when I get to play with my dog friends. It helps keep me healthy and happy. It’s also good for learning what to do if I run into a grumpy dog.
If I don’t at least try to play with grumpy dogs when I’m young, I really won’t know what to do when one comes over to me! Gotta learn sometime right? Dad says I’m “becoming well socialized”, whatever that means.
Here I am playing in a field with one of my oldest friends, Hazel!
We showed off our training to get treats!
Then we went right back to wrestling!
Sometimes it sounds like we are fighting because we bark and growl and it looks like we are biting each other. But we aren’t really fighting – this is how dogs play! If it does start to get serious, our dads know the difference and they calm us down. After a day like this we were both kaput!
