Debut at a dog park!

This morning, we went to a dog park for the first time. There are two areas for smaller dogs and larger dogs. First I let Luna into smaller dogs'. Luna slowly got closer to other dogs and said hi. She looked a little shy.

There were 6 dogs and I was observing social dynamics.
- Luna is not in the center; she is observing a group from one step outer.
- She doesn't initiate play and waits something happen; she is not a leader type...
- Once chasing play gets started, she is always following in the 2nd or 3rd; she doesn't take the lead.
- Gradually some dogs get tired and drop out from chasing; but Luna never gives up.

Well, all of her behaviors are exactly how I am.
Thinking back from my teen-age days to college, I always played sports in a team. Luna's style is exactly the same with my style. Like mother, like daughter...

There was a water fountain for dogs, but Luna didn’t drink. She is uncomfortable to share a water bowl except Muffin. :)

emikoです。毎日のように見てます。Dog Parkは近所にあるんでしょうか?「Dog Park」という映画で存在を知ったのですが、そんなにポピュラーだとは思っていませんでした。

Dog park は結構あちらこちらにあるみたいで、昨日は車で10分以内のところMountain Viewへ。この地名はLotusの方はみんなご存知だと思うのですが。:)
