Dane Day At the Dog Park

We took Lucy and Kona to the dog park today. It was still pretty muddy and of course Lucy and Kona decided they wanted to splash around in almost every mud puddle there. Kona makes it especially fun because she likes to jump on me after. She is not really a jumpy dog, I think she just likes to share the mud. LOL.

What made today unusaul at the dog park was the amount of Great Danes there. There was at least eight which is the most I have seen at one time any time we have gone to the dog park. They were all different colors and all beautiful. Lucy had a good time interecting with all of of the danes. She really likes being around other danes, I am not sure why, but she does. She was a rescue so she spent a lot of time at the rescue with other danes. Maybe that is it? Kona on the other hand has no affection what so ever for other labs. They are just another dog for her.

Lucy always manages to attract male dogs. I am not sure why since she was spade for years. Today was kond of funny because it was a young english bulldog. He would not leave her alone. He was trying as hard as he could to get high enough but physics really got in the way. He certainly had a lot of heart though.

Maybe she likes to be around other Danes because they're her size! The Danes I know seem timid of smaller dogs, unsure of how to play with them or avoid hurting them.

She certainly likes to be able to play with the larger dogs. Lucy is not an excpetionally rough dog but she is not all that tmid either. Overall though she plays more at home with me than anyone else.

What park do you go to? I have a dane puppy that I would love to get with other danes and I live near Corpus. We have NO danes in our city, mostly retrievers, which are not fond of the infamous dane "pawing."
