WHITE TIPPED TAILS AT PRAIRIE WOLF DOG PARK

GIBBSY was here today.  She was too busy playing with a stick to play with me.

My Dad forgot his gloves for our trip to Prairie Wolf, but he had his hat, three coats and the camera.  And I know what the Dog Park is…I didn’t know how wonderful the Dog Park could be the first couple of time we were there…but I know now!  And Gibbsy was at the Dog Park with her Mom!  I said HI! to Gibbsy but she was carrying a big stick around and wasn’t too interested in me.  And then I met my play-fighting buddy for this visit – KIP.  Kip and I are both one year old.  Kip’s Mom said he was half Border collie and half English Shepherd – like I cared.  Kip sometimes got into tussles with other dogs, but he and I got along just fine, he was a very good play-fighter.  Kip was picking on Gibbsy and Smoky had to come over and get between them.  Smoky was very talkative, especially when My Dad scratched his back.   Smoky’s Mom said that he was half German Shepherd dog and half Golden Retriever – but he was all black, a very handsome guy.

Kip was picking on Gibbsy....until....

...the rather large (and vocal) Smoky stepped into the dust-up.  Kip decided it was time to play with me.

Kip told me that he was adopted as a puppy.  He used to live in Green Bay, WI.  I told him I was found as a stray in Quincy, IL and how very good the garbage was there.

Hey, KIP!  Look out behind you!

Moving into the correct positions before play-fighting is a very important part of the porcess!

  1. Magic it looks like you found your match with Kip! It is hard to tell you apart in some of the pictures. And I think that Smokey is a very handsome dog…..oh! not as handsome as you of course….but still good looking!

  2. Man, oh man, there are some very good-looking dogs at Prairie Wolf Dog Park! Good for you, Magic, for making fast chums with Kip. Those English Shepherd types are splendid dogs, but some of them definitely prefer people to other canines. Your other new pal Smokey is a twin to one of my heart dogs who is now an angel. Your dad sure does a great job of getting some fantastic action shots. 🙂

  3. Hey Magic, we sure had fun that day. I wish you were at the dog park every day that I’m there, we can hang out together and I won’t be mean to other dogs that aren’t as much fun as you are!

  4. Love your story. My Lab / Border Collie mix (read: Border Collie brain and Lab body (with thankfully Lab short hair)) is just the best and he’s really funny too. My pup’s litter (he’s 4 now!) was to be service dogs, but I think that Border Collie brain won out. I’m sure Hood would love snow, but we don’t get much here.
