Gone to the Dogs

Our little Biggles had a semi-traumatic day...
No, that's not a camera around his next- it's a shock collar.
I know, I know. I'm a bad dog owner, but we had to get him one because the
neighbors complained that he barks incessantly after we leave for work in the morning.

So this weekend we tried it out on him. Poor li'l guy.

I felt so guilty about putting that thing on him.
When Roxanne called and said she was taking her dog to the dog park,
I decided to take Biggles too to lift his spirits

This was only his 2nd time at the dog park. The first time
he went he was a little scared and didn't
interact with the other dogs much.

This time, however, he jumped right in the mix and had fun.

Maybe a little too much fun. This big dog scared Biggles when he
charged up behind him, unaware Biggles took a tumble.
After that, Biggles would not leave that poor St.Bernard alone!
Biggles barked and chased him...and I was about ready for that shock collar again!

Here he is running free...Biggles the Rogue Doggie!

We have a dog park?? I had no idea... Your Biggles must suffer from anxiety when you all leave, it's pretty common, they even put doggies on doggy prozac for it... hahahahaha

Roxanne said...

Yay! I'm so glad you brought Biggles. I laugh when I replay that scene in my mind when Biggles was shocked by that giant dog! I love the dog park!

Poor Biggles! :( Is the collar working? Well, hopefully he won't have to wear it long. Maybe he needs a doggie buddy to keep him company!:) Sure looks like you have a nice dog park though!

Biggles is cute, and so sorry he is having to wear the shock collar. My daughters dog gets aggressive when encountering others so maybe she needs the shock collar cause she sure barks a plenty. I imagine it is a little traumatic. Would be for me. Good for you taking him to have fun. Jackie

Oh gosh! I hate to think about shock colors, but you have to do it if he's barking like that. :(

We don't have a dog park near where I live, but I bet my dog would be in Heaven!

shock collars...

I should really double-check my spelling.
