A Special Day

Today was a big day for Sherman.  It was his first day at Angel Paws Dog Park.  He did outstanding at the park, under the watchful eyes of both myself and Dog Dad.  We only stayed twenty minutes because a thunderstorm was approaching and the sky was darkening. 

Sherman's first steps at Angel Paws
Brooke and Sidney were already there when our car pulled up to Angel Paws.  I was ready to arrive at the park and Sherman was very confident.  The girls came over and greeted and sniffed Sherman and then he happily bounced around them wanting to play.  Three minutes later Kiana and Tonks arrived.  Sherman quickly became friends with Kiana.  Tonks rolled Sherman some, but not near as much as she usually does.  Was it the approaching thunderstorm, the smell of me (Essex) on my Great Nephew, Sherman's confidence, me watching over him, and possibly the spirit of his Uncle and my Nephew Deacon looking out for him too.  It was probably a combination of all of these.  Sherman was not scared, he was happy, he visited both canine and hoooman, and I watched to make sure he was okay.  Normally, I am on fence patrol, but I was close to the table today.  Sherman is still small, weighing only 27 lbs at the Vet's Saturday.

Hopefully, tomorrow we can stay longer and the weather will be nice.  The really grrrreat news is that Sherman was a success at Angel Paws.   

Dog Speed,
