Daisy's normal routine on Saturday mornings starts out with a brief walk in our neighborhood and then she takes on the role of co-pilot and she does a good job at it because she knows every twist and turn that leads us to her favorite playground,
Hooksett Dog Park, where she can be a dog! Yes, folks, dogs love to
sniff out new friends
and they do love to run, wrestle,
play and wag their tails
but heaven help Daisy if she even thinks about voicing her opinion about this glorious playground!
Apparently some dog owners disapprove of barking dogs when visiting this park and those owners will do what they can to make a barker and his/her owner feel so uncomfortable that their only recourse is to cut the park visit short.
Yes, Saturday's trip to the park was cut short because I got tired of repeatedly explaining why Daisy was barking but one woman, apparently, did not hear my replies until she reached down to pet Daisy while "shushing" her at the same time. By that point, I'd had enough and I'm sure Daisy felt the same way so I walked over to the woman and said, "Daisy is going to bark at a dog park because she is a DOG!"
