Pug Sunday

We brought Shelby out to Dublin Pug Sunday, and she had a great ole time. Which is good, because the previous day, Shelby had been incessantly harrassed by a little terrier, who showed far too much interest in Shelby's butt. The instant I sat down, Shelby jumped onto me, and started climbing up to my shoulders to get away from the other dog Poor Shelby. I keep hoping that she will eventually learn how to stand up for herself. The terrier was 1/3 Shelby's size, and she just kept running away. The other owner was so embarrassed, but couldn't manage to catch the wily little guy. That's why it was nice to see her getting along so well with the other dogs on Sunday.

Shelby's in the green collar, sniffing a little dog who is quite new to dog parks. Shelby's quite gentle, and tends to seek out the quieter dogs for a nice meet and greet.

Sounds like Shelby would get along with my Praline. She too despite her 28 lbs is on the quieter side around smaller dogs. However, put her with a Lab and she'll run circles around um.

Daisey May likes to run the show around all dogs! And the humping continues........I've tried noise, seperation, the fly swatter(just shaking it at her of course, which she promptly talks back to me about)and nothing is working! Any ideas?

Well I have the opposite problem, where Shelby is always the one being humped. I have noticed some owners pick their dog up for a "time out" and for some dogs, that works. But admittedly, I haven't see it work for all dogs.
