Although, Sherman isn't as inclined to play when it comes to bones. Scarlett usually loses hers to Sherman as soon as she walks away from it for any reason. And since he doesn't ever put them down - he just finishes them - and she never gets them back. Although you do have to admire her for trying.
We did a little yard clean up thins weekend because of all the leaves that were in the yard and Scarlett had a great time playing in the piles and making a grab for them as we'd toss them up for her.
We've been taking her places and have been having some minor successes so we decided to head out to the dog park for a little socializing. When we arrived things looked very promising - there weren't many dogs there (about 4-5) and we were familiar with about half of those there.
Just seconds after getting in the gate - a very aggressive dog grabbed Scarlett by the head and neck and started shaking her and we were certain she was going to be badly hurt. This attack was totally unprovoked. It was extremely scary and upsetting.
I have a hard time believing that a dog that aggressive hasn't acted this way before. And if the dog has done something like this - the owner had absolutely no business having the animal at an off-leash park. It took Brad and the dog's owner to get him to release Scarlett from his jaws.
Thankfully, Scarlett suffered only the most minor of physical damage. I think Brad actually bled the most. The owner was very upset and took his dog out of the park immediately. He did check on us after securing his dog. We tried to stay a little while but Scarlett was very nervous about the other dogs so after a short time and a little walking around the park we came home.
So I have no field trip pictures to share this time. I'm trying to get her into a training class - maybe I can get some photos there.
