The woods 🌲 My favorite place to take walkies! Today we met a toy poodle who was a bossy little miss🐩 We played a lot but she was definitely not taking any funny business from this curious "teenager"😁 Gotta respect the ladies' boundaries🙈

Houdini The Basenji (@houdinithebasenji)

While Ester and I were playing and having fun in this fenced dog park ⛲️ my hoomans got into a not too fun conversation with another dog owner who let their much bigger dog in the same area without talking to us. This other dog was much bigger and very intense, and not really listening to its owner, which is something that we not necessarily think is the best way to introduce strange dogs to our dogs. So we (hoomans👫) then put a leash on Houdini and Ester and walked over to ask if they could wait in the other fenced dog area (which is next to the one we were using) while we get to play by ourselves for a little while longer, and then we could switch so that everyone got to use the biggest area once. This was apparently not acceptable and we actually got yelled at for bringing our dogs to a fenced area if they can't play nicely with every dog that comes in. We tried to make them understand that not all dogs appreciate each other's energy and that it could be too intense with the new dogs that were let in and not in control by the owners (there was a big lab-like dog and a husky-type together with two people that came at the same time).. The whole thing ended with them not wanting to move to the other side of the fence and so we had to leave. Sorry for the rant but we had actually just waited 20 minutes inside the smaller fence for our turn in the big one, but only got a few minutes in there 😶 I find most dog owners to be very nice people, but unfortunately not everyone respects the dogs when they are telling us that it's too much and that they need a little space. Houdini and Ester are both very sociable dogs but with both of them being ancient breeds they are not always up for being approached they way they were today. Ester actually screamed and tried to get away when the lab ran towards her and stood over her head, she was then on a leash and the other dog didn't go away when the owner tried to call him. And it makes me really sad to see that it didn't affect the people we met at all, but instead we got yelled at and forced to leave. But as you can see we had a good time right up until all of this happened, and we're now both sleeping soundly in our beds ♡
