Today, I am a proud mama. My baby boy ventured into the dog park and came out alive, as did all the other dogs! It was our first true dog park experience. Veto was able to run around with seven different pooches, including the complex's identified mean dog. He butt sniffed, whined, barked, and frolicked with dogs of all sizes, earning him an extra treat when he got home.
I no longer have to scope out the park to ensure it is empty before allowing my dog to take a leak. The mommy is happy~the world has resumed turning.
