Weird Dog Park

Pappy at the Park, 20070218I've been tagged by Habca to list five weird things about Pappy. I did a similar one a while back, so I'm going to take some liberties with the instructions and instead list five weird things about the dog park this weekend:

  • There was icy snow blanketing the enclosure. There hasn't been much snow in this area in the last couple of years, so most of us haven't seen the dog park in the white stuff.
  • Pappy found a new tennis ball and spent much of his time grinding it in the snow to get it filthy. Ironically, it kept getting cleaner.
  • Truman kept roaming the fence perimeter on the lookout for turd-sicles. I don't want to talk about what he does with them.
  • The dogs seemed to spend way more time than usual sniffing the snow. What is there to smell in snow? It's snow.
  • And sweet Jojo spent the visit on her back wriggling and grunting. But that's pretty normal.

Sorry I didn't know about the old post. Which is very funny, btw... Pappy is a kind of comedian, isn't he? And now you are visiting weired dog-parks, too... plus: breaking the chain. Yeah, I noticed. ;-) I wonder if, maybe, this could be the last left-overs of the same chain as back then...

Don't worry-- these things go 'round and 'round. It's up to us to make them interesting for ourselves. I did break the chain though-- I hope there are no cosmic repercussions.

That Pappy's ball would get cleaner and cleaner the more he ground it in must have mystified him! Or not...

p.s. We hadn't seen any of Pappy's videos before DWB's FIDOs, and they're really excellent!! Best of luck in the competition!

About 20% of Pappy's behaviors don't have an human-interpretable rationale-- if he was mystified that didn't seem to slow him down any.

Thanks for the vote of confidence on the movies. We'll have to see how things come out.
