A place for me (Charlotte) to share all the adventures I have with the new friends I make at the dog park!
HI! My name is Charlotte! I am a two and a half year old German Sheppard Border collie mix. My mom and dad rescued me on February 13th from the humane society, where I’d been dropped off once and returned to them twice before my forever home found me. I used to be extremely timid, and am still a little skittish, but I’m safe and happy and healthy, and every day I come out of my shell a little more. I love my mom and dad so much that when they come home I can’t help but just jump up on them with my tongue hanging out of my mouth!
Last April, on Easter Sunday, they started to bring me to the dog parks! There are a few here in Columbia, MO where I live, but we only go to two of them. The parks have been so great for me, each time we go mom says she sees a new part of my personality and that I come out of my shell a little more. I love going, and have so much energy we always go at least once a day sometimes twice! I always make lots of new friends, and I even see some old ones that I knew before I came to my forever home. I like to jump up and box the other dogs in the head so they’ll chase me, that is my favorite game!
I wanted to share all the fun new things I discover at the dog park so my mom helped me set up this tumblr so that I could tell everything how great it was. And I’m going to start right now!
Today I met a pup who was just ten months old, and already 120 pounds! He was part bull mastiff and part black lab, and boy was he DUMB! He didn’t come when called and barely knew his name. He was three times my size and his dad said he was still gonna get bigger! Mom liked him a lot. She said that his head was bigger than her’s! He was a very handsome dog though, all looks and brawn and zero brain. We played together but he didn’t get the whole chase thing. He kept getting distracted. Still we had a lot of fun. He kept jumping up on Dad’s back, but dad didn’t mind. He says it’s still better than when I jump on the bed and land right on his groin….whatever that is. Two more dogs came a little later but by that point I was annoyed with all the puppy stupid and just wanted to do my own thing. It was a good day and I rested the whole ride home, and could barely climb the steps to our apartment.
I had a little nap but now that I’m done setting up my very own blog, I am going to take a nice long nap! Thank you very much for reading, I hope you come back to see what happens next!
