Before returning home to Pittsburgh we lived in a mountain community in the Pocono Mountains. Our current dog is not well socialized yet and doesn’t do well at dog parks. But Shadow knew how to play and he would play with Bandit until they both fell over exhausted. I miss the show these two would put on and never once hurt each other.
Some folks just can’t handle the action at the dog park. They see these two at play and get tense and nervous. Sometimes people would drive in, see these two and turn around and leave. Shadow and Bandit would play like this until exhausted and then they would collapse next to each other and pant. They both needed the workout but if you didn’t know better you might think this is a dog fight instead of best buddies.
You might not think it, but these two are best friends. They wrestle in the dog park until neither can stand, drink out of the same water dish, chase balls and do everything together when they meet. To look at this picture you might think DOG FIGHT, but nothing could be further from the truth. Buy a print of this image at my commercial site by clicking here.
