My Apartment Puppy—First Dog Park Experience

Now that Zip is over 4 months old, the age where all of her shots are administered making it safe for her to travel where other dogs frequent, and the weather has lightened up a bit we were off to the dog park for some socializing.

While there were about 10 big dogs in the large breed area, Zippy was the only small dog in the toy breed area. A large chocolate Lab named Callie that was known to be good with small dogs came over to play with her. This was the first dog Zippy met off leash in this type of setting. At first Zip was shy.

She soon warmed up and started to follow the Lab.

Zippy got curious about the dogs on the other side of the fence and started to watch them.

Then she got brave and said hello through the fence.

Later that same day another little dog, Tigger the Yorkie mix showed up to play with her.
