Faces of the Dog Park

Faces of the Dog Park, 2006-01
This weekend, neighbor dog Molly's owner called to say they were moving back in after a couple of months of construction. Pappy and Molly have been out of touch for the better part of that time. So Saturday morning, I bundled Pappy and Molly into the car for a trip to the dog park.

I had to keep the defroster on high to keep the windows from fogging due to Molly's freight train panting; those Lab genes are a menace. When we got to the park, I shoved my camera into a bunch of dogs faces for the collage above, revealing the true purpose of macro mode. We were at the park for a while when two dogs showed up with whom Pappy had previously shared some growls. Bizarrely, Pappy immediately moved inbetween my legs-- he's never done that before. This was endearing in a pathetic way, until Jack came up and challenged him to a wrestling match between my knees.

Buster baby,
Don't worry, I'm pretty steady on my pegs.

Jack is always happy to come to the rescue, ie bite Pappy's legs until Pappy wrestles with him.

Jojo,
Good to have Jack watching Pappy's back. Or at least gnawing on it.

Renee,
Chloe does have the Pappy look. We've pondered before whether Pappy might be a Schnairdale.
