A New Friend

A couple days ago I walked my humans up to the park by the pond again. It's hard to believe that just a little while ago we got a foot of snow, but this week the temperature been anywhere between 15 and 20 degrees (Celsius) in the beautiful sunlight! It feels good to have summer just around the corner again.

At the park I met a new friend. Her name is Abby, and she's a pretty Goldendoodle!

She was kinda fun to play with, but to tell you the truth, I prefered playing with my orange ball.

So I chased after my ball, and Abby chased after me. I'm not sure if she wanted me or my ball...

But she never actually caught up to me. I can outrun any dog, hee hee. If she wants my ball, there's no way I'm gonna let her have it!

After a while, Abby's human decided to take Abby home. So she left, and I was able to play ball by myself again. But just when my humans were getting ready to try to take me home, guess who appeared out of no where? Abby! And guess what she did? She got my ball!

I wasn't prepared at all for Abby to just show up and take my ball! Turns out that as soon as she got home, her human turned her back on Abby for just one second, and Abby came strait back to the park when her human wasn't looking. After a few minutes Abby's mom came back and found Abby with me and my ball. So Abby went home again, and I got my ball back. But as soon as I got my ball back, we had to go home. Oh well, hopefully I can play with my orange ball longer next time.

Thank you Ben Benjamin for giving me the Funky Blog award! I feel honored!

I would now like to give this award to Cashew and to Velcro!

Abby must have planned to come back unannounced to get your ball. She is so smart that she knows the way to the park all by herself. She must have wanted to play with you badly.


Amber-Mae said...

Oh, Abby is bootiful & she does not look like a Goldendoodle to me! I'm sure you both had a great time together!

Love licks,

Hi Sparky,

First of all thank you so much for the award. i'm going to make sure mom posts it NOW! Otherwise she'll forget!

It's been raining alot her lately. mom says she loves the rain and we always seem to go out in it-she especially loves to run in the rain! Silly mom!!! If you lived close you could always come running with us-sometimes when mom runs races or goes long distances, she leaves me at home....something about being nice to me because I'm not training for a race.... who knows.

Hey Sparky, I'm the same way in the park. I play with my ball. I've got no problem if another dog wants to run with me, but I'm just as happy if it's just me too.

Well, don't let Buddy see your red ball. he thinks everything he sees is his.

Glad you made a new friend. Perhaps next time she'll bring her own ball.

Hammer said...

Hi Sparky
I've missed you !!!
Hope you have more time with your orange ball the next time you go to the park. I would never take your ball away from you.
Have a good weekend mate. We're really looking forward to Autumn which starts tomorrow. The last 2 months have been non-stop rain and so hoomid. I don't like the hoomid weather at all.
Love from Hammer

We always like to meet new friends! It was luck that you could get your ball back! We can't wait for it to not be so cold so we can go to our dog parks. Our dad is such a wimp about the cold. Have a great weekend, Sparky!! Belly Rubs,
Tasha & Eva.

You are brave to play with such a bigger dog!! You looked like you had a lot of fun, even if the ball was taken away every once in a while. :)

Sparky Boy!

That Abby looks like one persistent little pupgirl! Is it any wonder she wanted to come back for one last look at you and a nice chew on your orange ball?
