I was the first dog to participate in Dog's Day Out today and I loved it. I am a female beagle / dachshund mix who loves people. I am very social and that is one reason I was surrendered by my previous owners. They thought it was perfectly okay to leave a dog like me outside by myself. I didn't think so and did more then my share of barking to let them know this.
Our first stop was a quick trip to the Littlefield's home. Did I say that I liked people more then I like dogs. On the other hand, the Littlefield's dog Lola likes dogs who prefer her over people - mainly her owners. Well that being said, we didn't see eye to eye so our visit was cut short.
Next stop - Bangor City Forest!!! I think I love smells as mush as I love people. The walk was great, no pulling for me. We met other dogs and I didn't appear to keen on these encounters. But I will say meeting other people of all types was something I enjoyed. I was very well behaved - never jumping.
At one point we met a little boy who was full of hugs - this was great!!! I truly love children and I really love hugs. My profile at the Bangor Humane Society says that I get along with kids, cats and dogs. My experiences with dogs today might be due to the fact that I wasn't feeling quite up to par. You see I was fixed yesterday and I may have not been in the mood to run and play with other dogs.
On the way back to the shelter, I took the opportunity to stretch out in the front seat using the console for my head rest. Oh one last thing - I love car rides. So if you are looking for a small dog with short legs, who loves to go for walks and smell all the good smells, who loves to go for car rides, who loves hugs especially from children - I could be the dog for you. I am hanging out in the small dog room at the Bangor Humane Society or check me out on PetFinder.
